    Just a question: How important is Freshers week in making friends etc.? I mean, if you dont go to any of the parties, how likely is it that you will become a loner for the next three years of your university career?

    you'll probably meet people from your course/in your halls. freshers' week parties are a good way of meeting other people as well, but there is also more chance that you might not see some of those people regularly, as they're on different courses/living elsewhere. still, it's a good thing to do IMO. no matter where you are, you'll only be a loner if you make the effort to be :p: even if you miss freshers' week, if you actively try to make friends with people from your course/people living near you etc, you'll be guaranteed to not be a loner

    In my boyfriends experoence...very likely.... (tho that was probably my fault, we'd only just started seeing each other whn he went to uni)

    Tho tbh you could easily meet other people on your course/campus. Especially in thatose first few weeks don't be afriad to talk to people; if you see someone else looking a bit lost etc then stike up a convosation. If you're friendly towards people it shoudln't be an issue really

    Ive got nothing really left to add as the comments above say it all really, I would just say make the most of freshers week, and try and meet anf talk to as many people as possible in it. But there are loads of other ways to get to know people, i would recommend joining societies and sports teams if you get chance, more for the social side of it rather than the actual competeing!

    i think freshers week is important, me and my flatmates went out pretty much every night and doing things like staying up til 9am talking really helped us to get to know each other. we never went out as a flat after freshers week because someone always had a deadline/was away so i'm glad that we had that week of non-stop parties
