    I'm in a new year group now so know less people. But I made a strategic move closer to the front which means that people I do know tend not to want to sit with me anyway. I get too distracted at the back, sitting closer means I pay attention.

    I have friends outside of lectures so I don't let it get to me.

    I only have three lectures a week, the other nine/ten hours are seminars or language classes. Half of my language classes I sit with one of my good friends, the other half she's in a different group and I haven't really gone as much to these classes so I just sit wherever and hope for the best. Seminars I usually sit with friends. Lectures it depends entirely whether I'm on time/they're on time but there's usually at least someone to sit with cos I know an alright number of people in my groups! If I'm desperately late I just sneak in the back and sit near the door by myself.

    I sit with friends if I walk in with friends or see friends with a spare seat next to them.
    If not, I'll sit alone.

    Most of my uni friends are on my course, so we sit together.

    However, my module choices for next year mean I'll be on my own for most of the time.

    No, there's nearly always someone I know I can go sit with, all my lectures this year are in classrooms though, not lecture theatres.

    There's about 4 separate people I inevitably end up joining generally, not often on my own.

    When I was an undergrad, I used to walk in on my own, find a pretty girl, and sit next to her.

    I generally sit *near* friends, close enough that I can turn around and have a talk in breaks ... but we're a small class in rooms generally too large for us, and so I like to have some room around me too.

    I always sit with the same two girls, and occasionally another two girls if they're on time (which isn't very often..)
    We also sit near another group who we talk to, of about 5 people, who always sit infront of us, so literally my whole friendship group sits in the same place haha.
