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

hi i can't w8 tht's the best way 2 bin wit a load of strangers coz we r all gonna b makin friends wit eachother anyway and parties r the best way 2 introduce ureself. It'll b easier 2 make friends as we all in the same boat it's harder wen ppl r already established in their friendships. I like i'm goin as a sexy secretary as can't show much skin off as i'd feel awful. Last time i went 2 summit like tht i went in a bunny costume but tht was wen i was single lol And yeah i luv those outfits the German girls wear there national outfit yay!!

I'm also lkin 4ward 2 movin in an meetin my 6 Housem8s

woohoo SWANSEA!

Guys, don't forget to arrive at the Fresher's Fair in good time, to go round and get all the freebies I always got tons of stuff - t-shirts, energy drinks, bottle openers, mugs, prawn crackers, little sandwiches, notepads, alcopops/shots, money off and special offer vouchers for places in town, squeezy balls, mousemats, moisturiser samples, lighters, balloons, pens, sweets, wristbands, CDs...one year there were even popcorn making machines!

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.

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?

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but i hate the swansea gym!

Its always packed, not enough range of weights, the benches feel like they are going to break in half, i always scratch my arms on the cables, etc etc!

The cardio seems pretty decent though, so it depends on your goals

For me, ill be changing to a gym in town next year when i move into my new house

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!
