Freshers Week events

With academic year setting in and the Edinburgh University Anime and Animation Society coming into its 10th year (so it’s still acceptable to act like big kids really*) we have a bumper-packed freshers week lined up for new and old students as well as all our regulars.

We’ll be at the following events over the week either hosting or with a stand:

Monday the 14th of September 2009:

AASoc Film Night

Where and when: Teviot Mezzanine @ 1830-0000

What: A chance to catch two recent releases in the anime world – worth coming to catch a feel of the regular film nights that AASOC holds in the Pleasance Theatre during the regular year.  A brave attempt at a new/exciting menu or a faux-pas at the hands of bureaucracy about where the event was to be held?  We’ll leave that up to you to work out…:P

Wednesday the 16th and Thursday the 17th of September 2009:

EUSA Freshers Fair

Where and when: Pleasance, Gym Hall last we checked but TBC, could be Highland/Ochil rooms.  From 1000-1600 each of the two days listed above.

What: A chance to sign up, pick up promotional tat, sweets and information about the society.  On the edge or not sure if it’s the society for you?  Come along and talk to us about it – we don’t bite (not since one of our previous committee members had to be put down for rabies…*sigh*).

Freshers Week begins on the 12th of September 2009

Friday the 18th of September:

AASoc Cartoon Night

Where and when: Pleasance Theater from 1930-When we get kicked out.

What: A chance to catch some of the best classic cartoons out there – from the Moomins, Mr Benn, Thundercats, Dangermouse all the way to some more modern cartoons that are funny too!  Well worth attending!

All events at Freshers Week are free to get a sampler of what events are like.  All events after that to non-members cost £1 for non-members from the Uni and £2 for those who are not Ed Uni Staff or Students.

Membership prices are as always:

Edinburgh University students/staff: £3

Everyone else**: £6

You can sign up at any of the events listed above during Freshers Week or whenever you first show up at one of our Series Nights or other events (all details can be found in Events if you’re busy during Freshers Week and can’t find one of our flyers).

* Except Ray, who’s pretty small and will remain under 10 mentally for the rest of his life likely – but we’re an equal opportunities society so he’s acting as our secretary this year…

** Except for ex-presidents, who get blamed for all the previous faults of the society and charged a fine for crimes against Anime.
