Jumpstart Freshers 2019

Jumpstart is an opportunity for freshers to meet other students in the faculty, take part in a range of activities, and settle into Southampton. It is our first ECSS event of the year, and is sponsored by IBM. See below for the week’s timetable, and information on the City Challenge which is part of the UG timetable. If you have any questions feel free to contact our committee, and have fun!

City Challenge

Get ready for The Jumpstart City Challenge 2019, Freshers! We'll be splitting you into teams and giving you the opportunity to compete in a series of group challenges and games, seeing some of our favourite things Southampton has to offer, alongside your assigned Jumpstart Group Leader (a current ECS student). This is the first of many chances you'll have to interact with the committee members, who will be glad to answer any of your questions and learn a bit more about us as a society.

Completion of any of our smorgasbord of activities with be worth some point value so be sure to bring your A-game!

Of course, it wouldn't be much of a challenge without prizes; be sure to attend the Jumpstart reception on Friday 27th September, where we'll have some goodies from ECSS and IBM up for grabs.
