    Its near Basildon, not the most exciting place... Yes! That's my worry too, I can't even imagine doing it. But then again I suppose every one makes friends very quickly in this kind of environment

    Nah I doubt it'll be that bad as I'm sure the unis will try and make the fancy dress nights somewhat affordable... hopefully anyway!

    They'll probably do something like that so we don't have to spend any extra money on outfits. I know it really is! I've bought so much stuff for uni it's crazy, definitely gonna come over prepared.
