“Being a RAG recruit was without a doubt one of the best things I did when joining university! As a first year student, being a RAG recruit was the perfect role that allowed me to learn new skills and get involved with an amazing society that I'm proud to be a part of. Along with building my skills and taking on new responsibilities, being a recruit has introduced me to so many new people and I have made a load of friends whilst getting amazing opportunities to raise money for some incredible charities!”

“I was welcomed into the Team Carnival and have thoroughly enjoyed working and socialising with everyone involved. Being a Hitchhike recruit, I have been able to get involved with Escape and Evade. Through this, I have been developed various skills that I will be able to use within my university and professional life. It has been a great opportunity and I hope to remain within the team whilst at university.”
