First Impressions

Posted on 28 October 2012 by Hannah

Hi all! I was walking through the centre of town yesterday and I kept noticing parents and students carrying the classic ‘open day’ bag from Cardiff. When I got home my Twitter feed was filled with retweets from @CardiffUniThrive to say how brilliant Cardiff was, and that people can’t wait to come here. It made
