BHSS FYC Website
By Ayesha Umair, BHSc (Honours), Class of 2024
For the first time, a specific website catering to the needs of a BHSc year cohort has been developed: https://bhss-fyc.web.app/. The BHSS First Year Council has set up an online home base, where students in the Class of 2024 can find resources, event information, and activities to promote cohort spirit. It is regularly maintained, visited, and updated with announcements so that members of our cohort can feel connected during the current pandemic situation.
The website also includes calendars with spirit events and course deadlines, links to BHSS social media accounts, and information on our BHSc first-year “Houses”. Houses are groups that first-year students have been randomly assigned to, and they can collect points for their house by attending the spirit events that the FYC holds.
The website is regularly updated with new initiatives, to ensure that students can connect with each other when classes are online. The FYC is also open to feedback and ideas for future projects. A list of all the FYC members and teams that make these initiatives possible can be found on the website’s ‘About’ page.
