Hello everyone, as you may have cleverly deduced from the title I am the editor of LIVIC this year, 5 points to Hufflepuff! My name’s Peter Nugent and I’ll be in my third year, interesting fact, so is all but one of our committee. We’ll get in to them later, in a totally non-sexual way. Maybe we could get in to a few, that Events and Sports Officer is mighty fine…
Looks like we got a bit off track there. Let’s talk a little about me, I’m a huge football fan, so you’ll probably find football sprinkled around LIVIC, maybe even a full blown article if you’re lucky. I’m also a fan of crosswords so expect some of those and a good book review might season this publication nicely. A dash of sexual innuendos, a hint of civil engineering and that pretty much sums me up. LIVIC is like a massive Peter Nugent flavoured sexual innuendo football fuelled soup. Tasty. If those topics aren’t to your fancy, why don’t you contribute? You’ll probably find me around the Skempton, come and show me yours and I’ll show you mine. Articles, strictly articles. Unless your intentions aren’t articles, perhaps something can be arranged. Let’s talk about Freshers.
So the big day has come, you’re a fresher at Imperial College London, and most importantly the best civil engineering department in the world. Check that out! Cambridge in 22nd place? Mind the gap! Honestly, the first thing I thought when I turned up at the Skempton was that it didn’t look great, the entrance was a faded blue and I look across the road and there’s the SAF that looked awesome. Fear not young fresher! You will be glad to know, it’s not about what’s on the outside, but what happens inside that matters. Sure, the SAF looks great but it’s home to Biology and Medic(k)s! You’re part of the best civil engineering department in the world, you’re in CivSoc which is one of the most active departmental societies at Imperial and you only just walked through the door. I’ll see you all at the pub crawl; it’ll probably be ranked the best in the world.
