Welcome party for international students starting January 2014

International Office give a magical welcome to new international students starting with us January 2014.
Date: 10 February 2014
London Met's international students starting with us in January 2014 had a magical welcome on Friday 31st January, at the University's venue The Rocket Complex.
Decorations for the party were themed around Chinese New Year as the date coincided with the Lunar New Year of The Horse.  
Guests were greeted with a free glass of champagne, nibbles and a close-up magician, with DJs and dancing until 2am. The party was well attended with 100 international students at its peak. 
Perhaps the highlight of the evening was entertainment by Jamie Raven, the 'close-up' magician who is also a mind reader. Students and staff were enthralled and amazed at his performance.
The Rocket event manager Alex Massey said: "It is such a pleasure to hold the International Student Welcome Party as it is always such a lovely crowd. Having Jamie Raven at the event really made it special, he entertained every group in the venue with magic from bending spoons, to amazing card tricks, to guessing peoples mothers' names! We can't wait for the next international student party!"
