QUIZ: There are six types of KCL fresher in 2020, but which are you?
No one wants to be the awkward post-grad
This year, Freshers’ Week has been thrown on its head. The coronavirus has brought club nights to screeching halt, and student parties are banned (unless you have £10k lying around to pay the fine.)
But it’s not all doom and gloom! There’s still lots going on at KCL and the virtual events are looking strong as ever. Plus the rule of six means the pub is very much an option, even if it does close at 10pm.
So turn off your microphones, put on your masks, and Deliveroo some cheap wine. It’s time to find out once and for all what type of 2020 fresher you are.
