Millie Donovan - Chichester Memories #4
Favourite course memory
My favourite memory was when I got to see us all embarrass ourselves in front of each other during our comedy module. We had to write and perform a stand-up comedy routine as part of the assignment and I can tell you now, I doubt any of us will become a comedian anytime in the future though 😉
Favourite SU event
I always enjoyed Freshers Week, especially the Freshers Fair. This is because it is a chance for everyone to get involved, see what type of societies are there and for the freshers to interact with the 2nd and 3rd years. Societies are a great way for freshers to meet new people and see that there are so many friendly people at the university.
The giant silent disco is also a huge event – which allows you to go out with your hall mates, housemates and friends!
Favourite society memory
My favourite memory of Film Society was when we were picking the next officers to lead the society in 2020/21. The amount of enthusiasm the candidates brought when they read their speeches showed that they wanted to continue the growth of the society and keep the positive changes the 2019/20 officers had made.
Favourite local place
I liked looking around Chi Cathedral gardens, especially during the Spring/Summer when all the gorgeous flowers are starting to show their colours – also, it’s GREAT Instagram and photo opportunity!
My overall experience has been amazing, I’ve made friendships that I will cherish and take with me into the future. I enjoyed getting to know people in other departments, through sharing a house, to a particular favourite of mine, Open Days. Open Days were so much fun, and I will be sad not to continue helping out. I enjoyed promoting the university to prospective students and helping answer their questions as much as I could.
Chichester may be a smaller university than others, but that’s what I love about it. All the members of staff in my department, Creative and Digital Technologies, were so friendly and would never shy away from a chat in the café or their office and would always support us through whatever we were going through.
