Freshers' Angels


Being a Freshers’ Angel at the beginning of the year is a great way to introduce new students to Herts. By helping them move in and encouraging them to get involved in activities, Freshers' Angels are invaluable in ensuring the newbies settle in nicely to university life. While it's not a paid role, it's a brilliant way to gain employability skills which will come in handy when you apply for jobs after uni! Remember you can use these hours in your application for a Go Herts Award.


The Freshers’ Angel role includes:

  • • Helping students move into halls

  • • Being a friendly face to new arrivals, ensuring they have a great start

  • • Directing students around campus

  • • Talking to parents and students & answering general questions

  • • Encouraging students to get involved with our Freshers' programme of events and activities


What does it take to be a Freshers' Angel?

We're looking for students who are enthusiastic, friendly and approachable to form part of our Freshers' Angels team. We'll need our Freshers' Angels to be hands-on over the course of the move-in weekend


When should I be available?

To be a Freshers' Angel, you will need to be available to volunteer on Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd September. You must also be available for training on Friday 20th September
