    Hello!
    I live in Worcester, I'm doing a third year at Worcester Sixth Form College up by County Hall. The university is on the other side, over the river in St.Johns but just a 15 minute walk from the city centre-worcesters great! The uni however is only good for sport, teaching and nursing. Its a very homely place and you are just minutes away from Bamboo which is a rather popular night spot [just never go on a thursday night as it is full of people from worcester sixth form college who tend to be underage-modays are the best for it, tramps on a saturday night and bushwackers on a friday].

    really?What night did you go on? On a thurs night it is generally packed but due to college students so a bit rubbish-sat night is trance weird night full of old men i went on a mon before and it was good-i think the first tues of every month is gay night. i'm not a huge fan of the place anymore-postal order or lunch at lloyds anyday!

    Hi ya
    Honestly you will be fine, i was like you this time last year, nervous reck, didnt no if i have done the right thing. You will have a great time, just make sure you use freshers week to talk to everyone there.
    I spoke to mate the other day, she said she loves her course, but you have to put the work in, some of it is quite hard, but you will enjoy it.
    What sport are you wantin to join? the hockey team has two teams, 1st and 2nds, you can be of any ability, just go along to any training and see what you think. Im vice captain of the football so if you need any info on that just ask.
    I lived in the Wyvern halls, (chandler is pants ones, wyvern is cool and then you get the posh worcester halls) i loved living in halls, i got on with all my flat mates, but we did have trouble with two of the lads, they didnt no what washing up liquid was or the meaning of clean up! we had good times, and cool parties.
    sorry i have babbled on, im bored and cant wait for the summer to be up.
    any more questions just ask

    hi ya
    honestly im sure your fitness will be fine, each team has training every week, joinin a sports team is the best thing you can do, you have many socials and a great way to meet peeps, wednesday nite is sports nite where we either celebrate our wins or losses, either way there is plenty of alcohol involved. i dont no much about the netball team to be honest, but the rugby and basketball are very good. what halls did you say you where staying in?
