...Rock Up! Sports Club!
The Rock Up! Sports Club! is a new initiative at Strathclyde, which offers a different sport or physical activity each week to our students. The aim is to have a fun and safe session each week, simple as that. There will be no PE teachers in indecent shorts, no getting picked last and no one being made to feel useless! So what are you waiting for? Get along to RUSC on the weeks that you can see an activity you would like to try, or be a regular RUSCer and come every week just for the hell of it!!!

What is your most memorable moment of Freshers Week?
Darren Young: My most memorable moment would have to be the Flashmob that happened in Rottenrow Gardens. It was fun, energetic and lively. I still can’t believe how many people were actually up for taking part within it! Chris Milborrow: The Big Fairground was a really successful day and I think everyone who attended had great fun, and most even left with a caricature! Karen MacKellar: My most memorable moment was being amazed by Dynamo, the magician! The tricks he did were just fantastic. I still don’t know how he does it! Cat Morton: My most memorable moment of Fresher’s Week was watching people playing on the inflatable assault course items, standing at the top of Rottenrow looking down was a really happy moment. Charandeep Singh: The Conga from Halls to the Union was such good fun and it was great seeing everyone get involved! I loved playing rounders and Frisbee in the Campus Village – great fun! Rebecca Maxwell Stuart: The Postgraduate Welcome Event was amazing, I only thought there would be about 50 students max there, but around 200 appeared!!! Was great seeing the Priory so full!
