This was a really valuable experience, as first years we were able to help with the setting up of the degree show. This meant putting up walls, painting and washing floors as well as helping third years with tasks that meant they could put up their work.
My third year didn’t really need my help though as she seemed to be very organised so I spent the time I was in helping other people with their spaces. However, due to the constellation essay hand in day being during these set up days I didn’t come in as much as I maybe should have, instead spending my time in the library.
I think that if my third year had needed me I would have happily made sure I was there for her. I still wanted to get the experience of setting up the show and so came in on days when I needed a break from the essay.
