LUSU has announced that County College is officially the most popular college as voted by students. County College was elected the ‘Best College’ as part of College Spirit Week, with such an election being the first of its kind.
Students were encouraged to go online to rank all nine colleges from their favourite to their least favourite. The voting was closed at 5pm on Friday, Week Two, when County was announced the most popular of the nine colleges. Grizedale College followed in second place, with Pendle College coming in third place.
Alex Alawode, the president of The County College was more than happy with his college’s victory: “We truly go out of our way to get our college involved in so many different activities and opportunities, so I think it is fair to say that we are constantly showing love for our college”.
“The majority of people choose Lancaster University based on the fact that we are made up of individual colleges who each have an individual identity” Alawode told SCAN. “It is therefore important that we all go out of our way to make sure that each college retains its sense of identity and show off its unity. Each college is like one big family really”.
The election for the Best College was one of the many activities and showcases organised as part of Lancaster University’s first ever College Spirit Week. The campaign, which was organised by LUSU, lasted the duration of Week Two and aimed to stir a stronger sense of cohesion and belonging within the colleges. The election, as part of this campaign, gave students an opportunity to honour their own college as well commend other colleges, while also creating competition between colleges.
County College is the largest of the nine Lancaster University colleges.
