    What was/will be your way of breaking the ice when you first go/got to university?

    I've heard some pretty stupid ones from some of my friends, one involving my friend walking into the kitchen for the first time and saying "So where's all the taco?"...

    Haha I didn't have a specific plan to 'break the ice' when I moved into my halls..things just happened!

    When I moved into my halls, I was the first one there, (well my flatmate was moving in down the corridor and I said hi as I was a bit shy and let her get on with it) and then I just dumped my stuff into my room and then my mum took me to the local Sainsburys to go food shopping.

    I then came back and there were 2 people moving in opposite my room and next door to mine so we just introduced ourselves and took it from there. Like after people had said bye to parents and sorted out initial stuff in their rooms, people wondered about the corridors to see who they were living with. Lol...seems so long ago

    theres no need for a plan.

    you move your stuff into your room. you knock on anyones door in sight and say hi. and when new people arrive you help them move all their stuff. simples. ok maybe that counts as a plan. but seriously you don't really need to think bout this stuff, it'll take care of itself

    Well there was only one guy there when i first moved in, he just said hi and asked if i wanted a cup of tea, and we just had a chat about where we were from etc..... then the next day everyone else moved in and we all decided to go to a freshers thing at the SU that night. Ended up coming back early and just chatting about the night etc. It all just happens gradually really.

    Just do stuff together...

    I dunno, a couple of guys were here when I first moved in, so we all sat on the hill and drank beers until the sun set.

    Definitely don't plan anything out or try and fake anything. The kids who try hard to appear cool/confident/whatever are obvious from a mile off, and usually puts them in bad stead. Be yourself, get chatting to as many people as possible, see who sticks around. Friendships can change very fast in the first few months, so best to be as sociable as possible.

    This is so true :yep: OP, you don't really need to think so much about it, things will happen by themselves. Just be friendly, and don't hole yourself up in your room :rolleyes:
