People often say that University is the best time of your life, that is certainly true when you live in Robert Bakewell Hall. We may be the newest hall on campus but this has not stopped us becoming one of if not THE best! Bakewell is much more than just a hall of residence, it’s a tight knit community where all our residents can socialize together, whether that be chilling outside on the quad, theme evenings or one of our legendary punch parties! If you don’t believe me have a look for yourself at the video from this years “Bakewell Day” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVup_7mQOCk&feature=youtu.be.
As a committee we will ensure that you start off your time here at Loughborough in the best way possible! From day one you will meet so many like minded people and have so much to get involved in! Whether that be inter-hall sports, volunteering in the local community, Welfare and Diversity in which we pioneered the first ever “Welfare and Diversity week” and of course raising money for charity in our popular Rag section, which we won in 2016 after raising an astonishing £118,000 pounds for charity! There really is something for everyone here!
On behalf of the Robert Bakewell Committee we welcome you to the Bakewell family and cannot wait to meet you all in September! In the meantime, be sure like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!
