Freshers’ Fair is a great event to cover as the campus erupts with colour and activity. Over 340 clubs and societies set out their stalls and run a host of activities to attract recruits from the new and returning students. It’s not everyday you see cheerleaders on the Queen’s Lawn, but Freshers’ Fair is one of them.
This is one of my favourite Freshers’ Fair images – students brightening up the Queen’s Lawn with an impromptu dance, making an excellent shadowplay on the pavement.

The Imperial College Union sign up another year’s new recruits.
The Imperial Immortals American Football Club drum up business underneath the Queen’s Tower.
The Imperial College Archery Club always seem so cheerful, and here they are signing up a new recruit in an image that was used on the College’s website homepage.
The expressions are great in this image. These lads were thrashing the rowing machines so hard in competition that they were lifting off the floor and bending in the middle.
A very different day for the lifts in the Sherfield building.
