    I wouldn't have thought that Prince Phillip could do all those things, but good for him. Don't really want to hear about your 'recreational activities', though.

    Am i the only one that is finding freshers week/fortnight really boring!
    To me the thought of getting drunk being fun is not ''FUN'':eek3: oH and not to mention the amount of people that sleep around...seriously have some self respect ...sleep with someone you have at least known a year!
    One night of freshers consisted of a marque with a capacity of 2,000 to 3,000, with drink and music...at first it was fine then people started to get ridiculioulsy drunk and it got really busy.Then i left bout half 9!

    My idea of fun is 30 mile+ bike ride/Mountain walk then a nice meal and a pint in a nice pub with or without music......Anything like this during freshers big fat NO!

    Oh yeah and i am not a boring old fart i do know how to have fun, just not the fun others seem to have!
    How exactly does someone who waits a whole year to sleep with someone have more respect than someone who doesn't want to wait that long.

    Yeah, in first year I found Fresher's boring, awkward, pointlessly expensive and generally ****.
    Clubbing is crap, only slightly okay if you know the people you're with and can have a laugh with them, not really possible with people you just met.
    This year I only went to two Freshers events: the poster sale and the society sign up, lol. :p: The "nightlife" stuff is definitely not for everyone.
    Uni got much better after Freshers was over and done with though, so don't get worried.

    Freshers Week only lasts for one week (well, mine lasted for two because the other uni in town started a week later so we got to go to theirs as well); OP will just have to realise that a large amount of 17-18 year olds who have just moved out of mummy and daddy's house and got their own space will want to get trashed every night. Clubbing every night for a week is not my idea of fun either - although I've had plenty of fun at clubs before - and it is a shame many universities don't put anything on for the students who have other interests, but they're faced with large amounts of people in their late teens who have no hobbies or interests other than Facebook and drinking.

    If you don't like the idea of clubbing every night then wait until freshers week is finished before you move in.

    Socialise but don't drink?
    Don't go to the main nightclubs, find somewhere thats not going to be as busy as the main even starring DJ Whoeverhe'scalled that's bound to be busy.



    Yeah, don't generalise all us freshers to be like this
    We don't all get pished and have sex with random strangers. You can have a good time like everybody else without having to do these things :cool:

    Note; I will be getting pished

    I 'm going to the pub on campus and having house parties.However my housemates seem to get over the top drunk, so then its no fun.
    As for the sleeping around......no not all freshers sleep around, but there are a small/medium percentage that do...

    No your not boring.. i just can't see how it is fun getting drunk and spending over £20 on just one night out on drink is fun.Then coming in at 2 ? its beyond me... then on days off staying in bed until 10+.Well this is probs what i am used to , coming from a family who are costantly on the go.

    Tell me about it, my flatmates only have a little idea of food safety and how to manage money! Putting warm meat into the fridge?, having no idea how to pay a cheque in without a paying in book? Simple stuff really

    you don't have to drink to go out and have a good time, but going out and bonding with your housemates and other people is fun just remember it is only a week long so after this week everything really starts!

    Hmm....

    I don't go to the Union every night even though i have a freshers pass. I have been on two nights and going again tonight but i hate the noise! So instead i've made friends with people in another hall and we have just done drinking games

    Most people in my hall rarely go out anyway.

    Can't tell who rep me for having a superior attitude get over myself?
    If its who i think it is .. i am only saying i have been at uni a month already because i have i can't see waht the problem is with me saying that? Its due to my course being longer than many of the other courses, this is by no means superior? If you think this is superior you haven't met some of teh people i went to college with , who thought the sun shone out of thier arse due to them getting a's all of the time.

    Just because i don't like getting drunk.This thread has gone way over the top now with people being ..oh er can't say it without sounding *****y.

    This thread has gone from
    Me being called a lesbian because i don't like getting off my face on booze
    me being called superior becuase i don't like getting drunk, or because i said i have been at uni a month already ...i am not reping the person i think it is because if its not them its not fair!

    As someone who doesn't drink, doesn't like clubbing (and the music that gets played) and isn't actually that sociable, I'm still enjoying Freshers and I haven't yet found it boring. Maybe because I've stayed in twice due to personal problems and not wanting to ruin everybody's night, haha. It's nice to have some rest.

    Don't worry, OP. Not everybody is really into the Freshers activities. Just try and enjoy yourself and not give off a "I hate this" vibe
