Success at Freshers’ Fair!

The interest in our Society has been beyond expectations at this year’s YUSU Freshers’ Fair. Although 20 members was our top aim, slightly less than 200 people showed their interest in our organising informal talks, hosting guest speakers, or our language tutorials.

Not only have the freshers been intrugued, but also 2nd & 3rd years as well postgrads and some of the York University staff.

This seems like a great start!
