Freshers 2017

Welcome to the OU Students Association. You’re now a member of a hugely supportive community! There’s plenty for you to get involved in and ways for you to meet fellow students.


What's coming up next?

Monday, 23 January - Welcome!

Freshers kicks off on the Monday at 6pm with an online radio programme hosted by OU students for OU students.

Your Vice President Community will then be hosting a chat on Facebook welcoming you to your Association (7.30 - 8.30pm). It’ll be a chance to find out what your Association is all about and how you can get involved in your student community.
