Hello everyone! Freshers’ Squash is a yearly event at CUAMS that exists for new joiners and existing members to meet and talk to fellow anime and manga fans and make friends in a relaxed atmosphere. Society members are free to join any of our other events regardless of whether they attend the Freshers’ Squash. Fresher’s Squash will be ran at 19:30 on Sunday 9th October in Keynes’ Hall at King’s College, however entry will be possible from 18:00. A CUAMS committee member will be available at the King’s College Porters’ Lodge with a CUAMS sign to let you in. If you cannot find your way or arrive late, please ping @committee in the Discord server for assistance.

The schedule will consist of a screening of 5 centimeters per second at 18:15, people may either choose to join the screening or remain in the outer room if they wish to chat. This will be followed by a short introduction to the general operation of the society and the current committee members at approximately 19:30. During the event, we will be hosting a team-based anime pub quiz and drawing games to help people to get to know each other.

For those willing to pay the optional CUAMS membership fee (no payment is required to attend CUAMS meetings), there will also be a raffle for an opportunity to win a range of prizes, including anime Blu-rays and DVDs provided by distributors we are working with. Membership will be further explained within the introduction talk.
