Vet Freshers Week 2015

Now is the time for vet freshers week!

Monday 12th October – Sports Day: Join us on Jesus Green at 5:30pm for a lacrosse throw around and some rounders. It’s a great way to meet other vets and all years are welcome! Plus it’s a perfect introduction to vet sports, we’ll even have some of our legendary cow print tops..

Tuesday 13th October – Pub Crawl: it’s time for the annual vet pub crawl! This is an event not to be missed, with the vets taking over Cambridge in truly glorious style. Meet on Tuesday 13th October at 7:45pm between Great St. Mary’s and Senate House to be divided into teams and go on a tour of some of Cambridge’s best drinking establisments, culminating in the watering hole that is Spoons before we hit Cindies. There will be challenges on the way so get excited. Animal fancy dress is compulsory, so dust off those tiger onesies, bat wing binbags and zebra stripes. There will, of course, be non-drinking options available at all pubs and no pressure to drink. Join the facebook event here:

Friday 23rd October – Cherry Party: tickets are now on sale! £9 for CUVS members and £12 for non-members. Please pay your year rep by cash or cheque, or do a bank transfer (name and year as reference, eg davidmelleney5). Cheques payable to CUVS, with your name, year, CRSID and college written on the back. Each ticket will include one free drink (pint of lager, glass of red/white wine, gin/vodka and mixers or non-alcoholic equivalent). The event will run from 9pm until 2am on, so no need to queue for a club after and arrive before 10pm to claim your free drink token. Held in the Union Society Building, the Cherry Party is on Friday the 23rd October and tickets are limited on a first come first serve basis.

The dancefloor in the Union Blue Room will be graced with sounds from the legendary DJ Cryptix. With four years of playing Cambridge club nights, ents and over twenty May Balls, Cryptix is renowned for his old-school garage and motown sets. The 1815 bar will be serving drinks at reasonable prices, even cheaper for Union members, so don’t forget your union card! Back 2 Skool fancy dress theme compulsory, as ever.
