Excited for uni, bored of revision? Here's 10 reasons why our A-level community are counting down the days until Freshers.....
1. No more curriculum, you get to focus on a subject you love
Yes, you get to read for hours on end about what you actually enjoy, not on what the government thinks you should know.
2. New semester means new stationery
Getting ready to shop for new notepads, pens and Sharpies...
3. Moving to a new place
Spending the beginning of September wondering how much of your stuff you can fit into the back of your parent's car....
4. Freshers week
Fresher fair attendance - a must
Fresher boozing - optional
Fresher's flu - AVOID
5. Meeting people you actually want to be friends with
Halls, course, student groups and societies, are all great places to make new pals.
6. Joining weird and wonderful societies
Pirates, pagans, onesies and extreme BBQing - anything goes at uni.
7. Doing your own food shopping
Supermarkets are the new toy shops for the young independent adult - you can have anything you want. First stop the pop tart aisle, stocking up for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
8. Being independent from parents
Budgeting and spending your own cash and feeling empowered to make your own sensible decisions all by yourself. Not forgetting, testing out how long you can really sleep in for with no one nagging you to get up.
9. Feeling flush
That moment when you log into your online banking and see your student loan has hit your account.....
10. Finding love
Cupid on campus..... who are you destined to meet?
