Booked your stall yet for Orientation 2014? Want to know what dates the Freshers’ Fair is taking place this year? Get the lowdown on what LSESU has planned for new LSE students (and current students too!) and what your society or club needs to do in advance:
We’re excited to announce that this year’s Freshers Fair will take place in the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre. As this is our first Orientation in our new building, we need to know how many stalls we can put inside - the only way societies and clubs can be guaranteed a stall is by going to www.lsesu.com/activities/howtoguides to fill out a Freshers’ stall booking form AND the Freshers’ stall holders agreement by Friday 29th August. If you do not fill both of these forms before this date, we won’t be able to allocate you a stall.
It’s happening on Thursday 2nd October and Friday 3rd October. Please ensure you have people available from your society/club to manage your stalls.
We require at least one member of each society/club who wants to be at the stall to attend the Freshers’ briefing on Monday 29th September to go over everything you will need for Freshers’. It is compulsory to attend so please make sure one of your members can make it.
STARS Awards Winners
If you won a STARS awards last year you will be getting priority placement at Freshers’. STARS awards winners also receive money for Freshers’ (up to £100 for Gold, and £50 for silver). To use this money, all you have to do is reclaim the money in the usual way, but remember to put STARS awards on the claim form, and we will ensure your society/club isn’t charged for this.
Post and parcels for Freshers’
You are of course welcome to send big parcels and post to LSESU, but please be aware that we do have limited storage space. If you are wanting to get post delivered to us, please ensure that you check with Iain Pullar, email@example.com, and get it delivered AFTER 29th September. If it is delivered before this date, we will have nowhere to store it.
Give it a Go
We are doing Give it a Go again this year in the first few weeks of term, which is your opportunity to showcase what your society/club can do to brand new students. We want societies and clubs to run taster sessions at the start of term. The Students’ Union will help support you in doing this. If you are at all interested in doing Give it a Go session, contact Iain Pullar.
Membership expiry dates
Please be aware that members expire on 1st September and so from 2nd September, every member of your society/club (including committee members) will need to buy new memberships online or in Students’ Union. It means all your mailing lists and data will be empty, so please tell all your society members before.
Now that you’ve got your A-Level results, it’s time to get ready for the biggest week of your life - Orientation 2014. The first step is by buying the LSESU RAG band, which guarantees you access to FOUR of London’s finest venues.
Tickets are on sale via the LSESU website - they WILL sell out so make sure you don’t miss out and get yours ASAP.
While you’re there, don’t forget to like the LSESU RAG Facebook page to get updates on the amazing events and activities they have planned for Orientation. For those of you who don’t know, RAG (Raising and Giving) is the charity branch of the Students’ Union and is hosting the RAG band. Throughout the year they’ll have a whole line up of incredible things to do (think mountains, think hitchhikes) - your RAG life at LSESU starts with the band.
LSESU General Secretary
You may have read about the hundreds of societies we offer, but it’s difficult to get a good idea of what’s available without learning a bit more about them.
If a society catches your eye, you should definitely check out their Facebook page for the best information on past and upcoming events. But aside from visiting the pages of individual societies, I thought I’d compile a post with some links to past society profiles and events. In past years, student communications staff have attended events and documented their experiences, and having a quick read through their posts can be really helpful in learning more about what’s available. Here’s what we came up with this year:
Society Events & Profiles
LSESU Beekeeping Society
LSESU Politics & Forum Society in Edinburgh & Gen Sec Debate
LSESU Mexican Society
LSESU Timeless Society
LSESU Development Society
LSESU Anime Society
LSESU Baltic Society
LSESU Amnesty International Society
LSESU Drama Society
LSESU Fashion Society
LSESU Malaysian Society
LSESU Gaming Society
LSESU Photography Society
LSESU Feminist Society
LSESU Actuarial Society
LSESU USA Society
LSESU Baking Society
LSESU Economics Society
Additional Public Events:
The free lectures held by LSE Public events is another major part of the LSE experience. Here are some reviews of just a few of the lectures held this year. Hopefully they will give you a better idea of what it’s like on an average evening on campus.

Gordon Brown’s “My Scotland, Our Britain”
