Orange is the New Black - Building Warming Party

On 30 April 2015, over 100 materials science and engineering undergraduates, postgraduates and school staff gathered at the new student breakout area for an all orange event to celebrate the move to our new School home. In colour psychology, Orange is optimistic and energetic, a warm and inviting colour that is both physically and mentally stimulating, so it gets people thinking and talking. The School adopted this colour to symbolise a strong, friendly, stimulating and vibrant community. 

This informal christening of our new facilities included an all orange menu with a range of healthy options as well as plenty of sugary orange snacks and drinks. Students and staff wore orange t-shirts, onesies and anything orange they could find, including a few carrot accessories!
