    hiya,

    The social scene is alright, but a great night is what you make it. Our Union really really rocks, people I've invisted down from Salford Uni and Manchester Met have said that Keele's is the best union they've been in amonst over Manchester unions and the once in Liverpool - but that's just opinion!

    Its pretty cheap for a night out here, too... inc taxis. On Monday at the union, its Manic Monday which means drinks are 99p, yay!

    we get a nice share of good gigs too!

    Newcastle under Lyme is alright, its got better over the last year and its pretty cheap and Hanley is also cool. To have a good night out you have to take a few mates out and you're guaranteed to have a top night.

    Living in Halls guarantees that you'll quickly make mates, just don't be shy - everyone is in the same situation...

    If you're shy, the Fresher's Disco will sort that one out for you lol, its a great laugh and great for breaking the ice, just be chatty and you'll have loads of mates

    getting to know people at keele is easy, as someone has already said there is the icebreaker disco on your first night, then you can get involved with the societies (there's a lot of them) and keele is one of those places where you just end up randomly talking to people.

    if you're living on campus you'll meet the people in your halls on your first day, and then you'll meet people quickly in your lectures.
    otherwise just get involved with all the things that are on during freshers week, don't be afraid to go along to something on your own they'll always be people there in the same position.
