    I'm going into first year and on every Facebook page to do with Portsmouth Uni, it tells me to buy a freshers pack and tbh they're very expensive... Like the first one is £45?? Just wondering from any previous students if they're actually worth it?

    I bought one the other day accompanied with a huge pinch of salt. I can't imagine myself at a rave but we're gonna find out any way.Don't worry if you don't get one, it won't be a big deal and won't have you missing out on an awful lot unless dancing, drinking and both at the same time is your cuppa tea. I might not even bother despite buying one.

    I'm a current Student and i would say no, don't bother buying one...

    you end up paying for stuff that you probably wont go to.

    There are much better events to go to than the one's in the freshers pack.
