Freshers' 2022

We've got a jam-packed Freshers' schedule for 2022. Please remember that Marjon Student Union are the only place selling official Freshers' tickets - if in doubt email mdavies@marjon.ac.uk to check.

Notification of changes to planned activity

A national Bank Holiday has been declared for the day of Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, Monday 19 September. 

This is the start of Welcome Week at Marjon, and the day when most first years were due to travel to campus for essential inductions. We have therefore made some amends to the planned activity.
