Fresh approach to Ayrshire College Freshers
Ayrshire College students enjoyed a special Freshers Party at Harleys Bar and Furys Night Club, organised by the Ayrshire College Student Association, to celebrate the start of their studies.
Teaming up with Murray Baxter, one of the college’s music and sound production lecturers, the Student Association organised the event alongside their usual campus-based, daytime freshers’ events.
This was the first time the Ayrshire College Student Association has put on an evening party for its new and returning students.
The event saw Harleys host the alternative stage, which featured local DJ ‘Flying Tulpa’, Glasgow-based electro goth band ‘Witch of the Vale’, and synth-pop group ‘Candy Says’.
As Furys’ resident DJ got started upstairs, DJ duo ‘Module’ – featuring Ayrshire College HNC Sound Production student Connor McGuire – continued the music for students who stayed downstairs in Harleys.
‘Candy Says’, who had performed in Glasgow and Edinburgh days before the Freshers event, popped into the college’s Ayr Campus before the show to speak to music and sound production students about their experiences in the music industry.
Jack McCrindle, Student President of the Ayrshire College Student Association, said of this year’s Freshers activities: “I'm so happy with how the event turned out, which wouldn't have been possible without Murray and the music department. Last year I saw a lot of great work being done at Freshers Week by student unions in universities, which influenced me to bring a similar event to Ayrshire College. It turned out to be a great night and I hope it's carried on for years to come.”
