    Yo,

    Am in my first year at uni, almost completed my first term, my course is hard so much work to do and my accomodation, although nice, has only 1 other undergrad student living near me. The others are post grads/international students so they never wana socialise etc so stupid. Now this one guy who I get along well with (decent bloke) is being evicted because of extuenating reasons. This means that now my flat is gona be dead, got no one to talk to!!! Therefore its much harder to go out having a laugh with people cos its fricking weird on your own, espescially as freshers week has long gone....
    I know this is gona mean the rest of the year is total crap
    FML
    Just gona have to study the whole time which will be dull as anything!! :mad:
    Anyone else been in this situation, what did you do???

    I was looking at Barts for Medicine... hmm, I thought it would be a generally vibrant place though, for any degree they offer. They were really rude to me on the phone though, but the Canadian was nice.

    So what are you going to do about your problem?

    Even if the societies are rubbish join anyway cos it means you'll make friends.

    Once you are part of a group of friends (even if they are geeky) its easy from there to branch out and meet new peeps

    Well it's a start. Such a shame though. I know that a lot of people seem to think if you are having a lack of social life at uni (or anywhere) then it must be your fault, but I know that's not always the case. I guess you could just try out any society, even though you think they're rubbish. There must be others out there.

    Well, joining a society that doesn't really interest you will still allow you to meet some people and get away from studying. Hopefully you can meet some people there and meet with them outside of the society too.
    There's an option there and you have to be willing to take it. Otherwise, don't complain.

    You're not going to make any friends with that attitude.
