There is so much going on at Reaseheath outside lesson time!
With so many clubs, societies and forums that you can join, and a lively programme of social events arranged by the Student Association, there is plenty to do in your free time.
Our student social area, The Jim Humphreys Centre (the bar) in the heart of the campus, has a pool table, darts, table tennis and large screen TVs and is a great place to relax and meet with friends. A lively programme of social events is regularly and enthusiastically arranged by the Student Association, including the Thursday night social (with live DJ) and live entertainments such as hypnotists, bands, magicians and comedians.
The ‘Reaseheath Experience’ starts from the moment you start your course or move into our halls of residence, with the freshers crew (around 18 returning year students) welcoming you to the campus and being there for you over two weeks of events to get you settled into campus life. Events such as bush tucker trials, slip and slide and freshers ball etc. Last year even saw Wagner from the X-factor!!
The freshers crew then go into their Student Assocation roles for the rest of the year. As a Reaseheath student you will automatically be a member of the Student Association. The Student Association provides the focal point for student representation, information, advice, entertainment and services, and ensures your introduction to student life is as enjoyable as possible.
One of the highlights of the year is RAG Week. Each year a substantial amount of money is raised for a local charity of the student’s choice. To date, the appeals have raised over £200,000 for worthy local causes, and we need your help to raise that figure much higher during 2015/16.
Wednesday afternoons are dedicated to sports activities. You can choose from a wide range of sporting activities – you could join our hockey, football, rugby or netball teams and even compete in the North West British College Sports (BCS) Leagues.
We now offer the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award at Reaseheath, this is a great way to try out new activities and a fantastic way to get involved with new activities whilst gaining a highly valued award.
At the end of the year you will be able to celebrate your success with friends and family at our Presentation of Awards Ceremony. Not before letting your hair down at our annual student Summer Ball which has seen live acts such as MTV club and Scott Mills from Radio 1!
