    Get in with some mature students like me, they tend to be past the stage of rebelling against their parents and getting drunk and high to prove how insanely cool they are
    Most people don't drink to rebel against their parents, what?

    The three reps I got from (as far as I know) Muslim members tell me otherwise.

    I mean, I want to have friends too and not seem like some loner. Also it'll be hard studying for my course when everyone else is being loud and playing music.
    Whenever you want to study, you can do so at the library. It's a good routine to get used to and it will be much more peaceful - try to make the most of this - you can also take your laptop, tablet etc. with you for charging and free WiFi. If your friends are doing the same course, chances are you'll eventually end up having study sessions together at the library as well.

    Check out the societies that are available to you. Many will organise various group activities and sessions. There's also going to be plenty of ongoing events, presentations, debates etc. by some prominent people if you're lucky to happen across these.

    There's actually quite a lot to explore and do, it's not all about partying and getting drunk. Just be open and willing, and you'll find out for yourself what I mean. There will definitely be like-minded individuals that you can relate with.

    Most kids I know drank whilst in secondary school, not even the 'cool' kids like literally the vast majority of people.

    Most Muslims join the university ISOC, some of them use being away from home as a chance to rebel and start drinking and losing their virginity. Just be careful of the types of Muslims you'll be around, some of them will be liberal and do what you are against of.

    Why are middle class kids sheltered? I would think since they are so rich, they wouldn't be sheltered and people would literally queue to be their friends. But you also hear all sorts at private schools where boys and girls get rowdy..

    1) not everyone who drinks or takes drugs destroys their education, blatantly false. literally anyone can see how false that is.
    2) you're boring

    1) Who said I was talking about alcohol and drugs when talking about destroying my education? Although I do assume they do have a positive correlation and probably a causal link.
    2) Cool 👍

    Yep, us kuffar are that eager to corrupt you. We have secret meetings where we get together and plan our mischief. xD
    Lalalalalalalalala

    I'm not listening to the Islamaphobic, racist, xenophobic, discriminating, fascist (and the rest) lies of the Kuffar!

    You can attend Freshers Fayre and there are usually lots of activities and events happening during the day which don't involve alcohol. Your university should have a schedule with all of the Freshers events.
