June (for July intake) and July (for August intake) saw an influx of foreign students wishing to attend summer school at the university, myself and Ynyr, another ambassador attended the Airport to greet the new students and get them safely onto transport to Glyndwr, these were 4 long days having flights arrive at different times during the 2 Saturdays and 2 Sundays that we attended, this I loved doing, it was very nice to meet so many foreign students, some of which had never been away from home before, this must of been very daunting for them, hopefully Ynyr and myself helped to put there minds at ease during this brief transmission. 13 more words
