    Sherman- purple isn't exclusive to warwick. Its snake bite and black and goes by various names (diesel up north, purple nasty in lufbra etc). Its interesting to drink- goes down like ribena but gives a killer hangover the next day

    ads44(+)- what kind of band? check out bandsoc- www.bandsoc.co.uk if you want to join a band. Orchestras etc i'm not too clued up on though.

    how about ppl who want to actually music in front of ppl in a concert with a band, where can they play?
    Bandsoc organise a battle of the bands in the union each year, plus there seem to be quite a few student bands who support some of the bigger bands who come to Warwick (though that may just be a rumour - I've never actually been to any ).

    Edit - just read Ynox's post about orchestras. If that's what you're in to there are loads of them - symphony orchestra, wind orchestra, brasssoc, jazz band, ensembles, etc. They all do various concerts throughout the year and they did a huge one all together in the field outside maths & comp sci at the end of last year.

    Ahh thanks for the correction. You learn something new everyday. Unfortunately though I've never had enough Purple to give me a killer hangover.

    And one can just drop by the Music Centre for info on those orchestras as listed by Jenn above.

    If anyone has any more q's im happy to help, mangomaz seems like a good lad as well so im sure he wouldnt mind either.

    anyway yes yes no need to worry so much... didnt mean to cause such a bother with all the 'social life sucks if ur in AV'... if u put on your applications that you're extremely sociable and like to go out lots etc you probs wont get it anyway
    and of course there is the rest of the university to socialise with etc...

    I lived in Claycroft last year, there were 3 brits and 3 internationals in (incl me) sharing one flat. In my experience indiand and chinese people can be pretty clique-y. The British Indian in my flat would invite all the indian people on his course over for studying. I dont think I ever so him together with somone not indian.
    Yeah, well as long as I don't get a corridor full of cliquey people like that I should be fine. I know Chinese people can be cliquey, I've had a lot of experience of Cantonese culture because my bf's mum's from Hong Kong. Meals out with the extended family can be awkward for me, with them all speaking Cantonese, but at least my bf can't speak it either :p: It seems to be a welcoming culture when you're accepted; maybe my experience will be helpful.

    JohnSPals - Good choice :p: Which hall did you put as first choice?

    I know the social life is gonna seem tame to me. I go out in Colchester, centre of ****s and squaddies. But I'm fine with that...squaddies are prats for a start (the ones I've met), who think they can have any girl they want. Apparently Essex leaves its mark, and I just hope people don't think I'm a **** (I'm not).

    Guys, I really don't understand this whole labelling business, as in "geek" or "not-geek". I don't see how you classify a geek. Honestly, there might be a person who doesn't drink for a variety of reasons and who still goes out, has a good time and likes people. I actually know many people like that.
    Both my friend and I got 4 A's in our A-levels, which is considered outstanding down here in good old Greece, and we do study quite a lot, and we enjoyed the subjects we were doing. But we're both beer fanatics, we love our drink, we like clubbing. It's true that we like our quiet drunken philosophical discussions... So does that make us geeks? Or not?
    I just don't see how you can brand people you don't even know. I think all people are interesting and everybody deserves a chance to be well-liked. There are endless things you might learn (and I mean life-learn, not book-learn) from you "geeky" friends. You might find new interests you'd never discover with your "cool" friends, or whatever you make the opposite of the undefined "geek" to be. And vise-versa.
    Human nature is so interesting and varied that you simple can't be so prejudiced. Just wait till we get to uni and try to keep an open mind, it's a very worthwhile quality.

    Sorry for the rambling rant, I just got a bit annoyed with the whole subject.And I aren't sober either, so cheers

    Generalisations and stereotypes just mean you're closing yourself off to people whom you judge on their appearance. You could gotten along great. People have more in common than one thinks.

    JennLlama- red and blue aftershock mixed together does the same

    purple vomit reminds me of score though. Only been a couple of times and both times I didn't really intend to go- just was in the union and met people I knew and a few pints later ended up there.

    So if you don't drink, you're a geek?

    Blimey. But I'm a choir geek who likes to get paralytic every so often... where does that put me?


    I'm gonna make a geek thread!
