    A problem that I found is that if you kind of .. close your mind, not really but sort of... I'm not sure.. but I found that there were little to no things that interested me in the way of societies in the first year or two, though if I could go back I'd change that for sure and try something new that I'm tentative about.. although there are still a few of those. But yes, purpose is important for being at uni.

    Lol not all unis have had their Fresher's Week

    I think that the toughest bit about the transition is that you need to start getting into full academic mode in the weekend after Freshers', which is tough enough without having to struggle through all the reading lists and everything.

    The change from party animal to law undergrad has literally been an overnight one for me, and that, truthfully, is not easy after a 3 month summer.

    I agree :yep: it felt like a bit of a shock to me too. So have you just started uni or second year? How's it going?
