Checked my timetable and I have a compulsory drinks reception for my department to attend for an hour. As someone who is in their late twenties, commuting to uni, I'm a bit concerned what this will actually consist of. I also suffer with a degree of social anxiety and know literally noone on my course (we haven't started and I live at home and commute). I just have a vision of being the old one at the back looking at their phone trying to stave off a panic attack lol.
Not really looking for reassurance but just a feel of what it's actually like, what to expect, what's the general dress code, are there generally places to sit etc etc. I know this varies from university to university but I'd still like I feel for what it's like for anyone who has experienced it. Is there actually alcohol? Feel like that would make things a little less stressful. Even if it is a lot of people making the rounds and talking to everyone and little circles of people who know eachother I'd rather know rather than go in blind.
What is a Compulsory Drinks Reception? (living at home, bit nervy)
