    Every hall has so many people you're guaranteed to have the guy who stands way too close, the girl who gets drunk and loudly yells at her boyfriend at two in the morning, the guy who doesn't bathe and the person who never speaks to anybody, wears all leather and who you never see during the day.

    And if you don't see any weirdos in the hall, then it means you're the weirdo.

    I plan on making friends with all the weirdos. Maybe do a Karaoke night.
    Not sure about the Karaoke mate not my scene. I'll props do it after a few beers. what you singing though?

    Nobody is cool when they're karaokeing, so it doesn't matter what I sing: Barry White or Jason Mraz or Jonathon Coulton, maybe.

    Maybe the greatest love song of all time:

    The more you guys drink, the better I sound.

    That's the best part about university. Literally nobody knows who you are and you can be anyone you want to be.

    You can make all kinds of mistakes.

    My mistake is going to be singing, "Baby Got Back" in front of total strangers during freshers week and then getting on the mechanical bull Derby breaks out for it.

    As a semi-retired electrical engineer, who ended up with both a Bachelor's and Master's degree, i would advise making the acquaintance of people doing the same course that you are. I started forming "study groups" whilst an undergraduate, and i found it a tremendous help. I usually tried to get 3 to 5 other students to get together and share solutions to homework problems and clarify obscure parts of my class notes. We also would confer on what we thought likely exam questions were going to be - so that we could study appropriate material. When i started my Bachelor's program, i was a lousy student - i had NO idea how to do it. Consequently, my grades were pretty bad & i needed all the help i could get. Later on, after working for a few years, i figured out (to a degree) how the student business worked. It was not until 2/3 of the way through graduate school, however, that i thought i really had a handle on how to do it. Best of luck! Cheers.

    Thanks! The only issue is the course I'm on is new and I don't know if many people will know about it to be on the same course as me but there are lectures I'll be having with people from other courses like psychology so guess I'll be meeting a range of people really!

    It will be one second of glory and non-judgedness. I'll go from this: to this:
    :bunny:

    I just looked at photos and stuff from 2014-2015 freshers to get an idea. There's also a youtube video on Freshers Week, so things like Freshers Zoo and F*ck Me It's Freshers are on. They're not sponsored by the University, but one's a fancy dress concert and the other is all glowsticks, music and craziness. The University has a lot of clubs introducing, music and sports.

    That's just what I picked up on from the ads. Dunno if that's your scene, but those are the big ones. If it isn't, come up with ideas - People with your interests(Anyone's) are gonna be around. Cards Against Humanity? Done. Magner's and Movies? Also done. Just figure out what you like and something will be happening or can be set up.
