Hi everyone, my name is Carly and I'm studying Operating Department Practice on the Chelmsford campus.

I commute to uni and my place of practice from my family home.

I am a member of the ODP Society and we regularly meet for both educational trips and just for some fun.

My best memory so far at ARU is trying to complete a treasure hunt team building exercise. There was me and five other students running around the uni like complete loonies, involving and questioning anyone we came across. Everyone's so friendly and willing to help, I quickly learnt that this is a great place to be.
