    Hi Peeps.

    Starting at the Uni of Leeds this year.

    Wondering what's the best action plan for fresher's week, what to expect, joining sports teams etc and how to get the most out of it?

    Honestly it's all dependant on who you live with, you can't really prepare for what it'll be like until you're there. I would suggest attending the freshers fairs for sure, there's so many teams and clubs you can sign up for and you'll get to talk to people who have been in those clubs before. And as for getting the most out of it, if you like going out and partying, invite other people from other floors and flats out to pre drinks with you. It's probably the only week (well, for my halls anyway) where it was totally acceptable to go knocking on people's doors at 11pm asking them to come out with your flat and they usually would, that way you can make more friends.
