i understand but everyones gna feel that way, i had some advice from someone who went to uni and she said dont get out of ur face on the first nite cos u dont know the ppl ur with and whether theyl look after u if u get really bad. Its scary but thats the whole point to try and meet people ul be fine! im scared out of my mind too! lol
i got **** all at last year's freshers fair... Gonna go early this year lol..
A tip i'd give is not to join everything.. U wont go to hardly any of them anyway, so its just a waste of money.
Yeah dont join everything, but try and join something. Also dont be taken in by some of the stall representives, as they do want your money. Only join something if you really want to, dont be talked into it.
Did u go to the fair alone? Was it open on the first day you got there or was it open all weekend? thanks
Just found this on the website -
24-28 September: The Freshers Fayre is organised by the Student and Athletic Unions where you can join the clubs and societies during the day and party in the night. To find out more about what's on pick up an Entertainments leaflet from the Ents office in Fulton House or refer to the Freshers guide posted with your enrolment instructions.
Is the uni gym the closest gym to the student village? Or is there one nearer?
as far as i know it's the closest, and if its not its the best and most popular for a reason.
I'm pretty freaked about Freshers week too. I don't drink much so I'm worried that everyone will be drunk around me and I'll be all alone. Even though, I realise I can't be the ONLY person who doesn't drink much (or at all) but it does feel like that sometimes!! :P
Also, I've heard that you're meant to bring a school tie to wear? Is that true? I'm coming from Australia, so I don't want to pack one then find out I don't need it lol
I seem to remember packing mine in the first year and not using it (possibly because it was really ugly and stupid-looking) then in the second year not bringing one and just wearing a normal tie of my housemate's.
Also, I'd say hat about 70% of people who say they don't drink much/at all when they start uni, usually end up doing so within the first month or so. I never drank that much before uni (had never gotten properly drunk) but do a lot of it at uni. Two of my best friends though, insited they'd never get into drinking, both for very different reasons, but now do it just as much as everyone, lol. So don't worry, you won't be pressured into it or anything... but it does seem to just come naturally to most students!
