How often do you go home from uni?Watch
I only went back twice before christmas and im only an hour and a half away from home.
Just wondering how often most people go back home?
Thinking about it I don't think he'd miss much on the social side as all most people seem to do is sleep/work at the weekends. What do you think?
I go home once in October for my birthday, christmas, once inbetween new year and easter, easter, then thats me till the end of year.
It isn't all that strange, sometimes people have jobs at home, there are various birthday parties, family events to attend or people are just realy close to their family. No one shouldn't judge you on the amount of times you go back home, only you'll miss a couple of days where not much goes on. My uni can get pretty dead at weekends for the very reason that lots go home.
It also depends on priorities and how long or how expensive it would be to travel back.
And I thought I was home plenty. But then again, I'm from abroad.
I go home maybe once every 5/6 weeks. It'd be more, but my boyfriend is at a different uni and I often have a chance to see him at the weekend instead of going home, and I'd choose to see him. Also, my flatmate this year is my best friend (and her boyfriend is one of my others!), so it's nice to stay in my little london flat with lots of friends around
Between terms. That's about it. Only other times have been particularly special occasions like my grandad's 90th.
This is because I see my boyfriend, who i wouldn't be able to see any other time, and I also have a lot of family I need to see.
Plus, I have a saturday job near my house which, even though it's only £50 for the day, I wouldn't want to give it up, as that's my food money for the whole week!!
Saying that I have mates at uni who do go home every weekend to see their partners/families or because there job is there. It's down to personal preference and what works best for the person involved tbh.
That said, on the weekends I stay at uni, I don't do anything . I should change this.
That video in your sig really disturbs me...
