Today is the First Day of Matriculation and Induction at Edinburgh College of Art.

Part of Edinburgh College of Art

I am thrilled and get up early with all my signed papers of SAAS sponsorship, passport, and health papers. Before walking up to the College I decide to buy a 9 Pound do-away Kodak HD camera to take snapshots of this weeks events.

- You have to wait for them to be developed and put on my Blog later on -

Matriculation at Edinburgh College of Art

A long queue of new students that have been allowed to start the BA (Hons.) Art & Design First Years Program in front of the service desks.

I have met with many kind and enthusiastic youngsters that went through the Matriculation with me. Names, names, names and faces... all to remember as best as I can.

Here is my proof of being an Art student:

We continued with a lecture in the Main Building Theater by Director of First Years, Brigitta MacDonald

and many lectures to follow...

As well as a tour around the College

Then at around 3.30pm back home to make dinner and get dressed for an evening out.

Freshers Pub Crawl - Monday 26th September 2005

Freshers Edinburgh Tour Pub Crawl - Monday 26th September 2005

Open to all new students and their friends
Start at the Wee Red Bar at 7pm and then onto the Hogshead, Bread Street at 8pm.

The Hogshead is a chain of pubs that have a contemporary style. Each outlet has a selection of real ales and an extensive range of Belgian beers. They also serve traditional food and wine.

After the Hogshead we moved on to the Beehive at Grassmarket.

We then strolled on to Biddy Mulligans nearby...

But it was decided that we should crawl... so off to Nectar, a place neither shown on picture nor found on Google.

This is where my memory got a bit rusty ;o*

I ended up with a belly full of Lager and a group full of friendly Freshers. Set the alarm clock to 8.00 am to not be late for the second day of Induction.

It's really to be very complicated!
Nevertheless I will try to understand everything!
Good luck, but be careful with too many kinds of beers!
