    Here goes... I'm Natalie, i'll be an English student. I'm 22 and like cats and coffee.

    Over to you...

    Heya I'm Jen

    Yeah I'm only seventeen too! And I'll be 18 in July, hoping to study English at Sussex this september if I get my AAB (A in lit)

    Well hopefully that'll happen cus I'm on AAB at the mo but there are so many horror stories of people screwing it up at the last moment in those summer exams!!

    I love horse riding, that fit guy who plays Cedric in Harry Potter , and my friends- I'll miss them sooo much when I'm at uni but can't wait to meet all you Sussex guys!

    I'm vegetarien too (don't think I can spell ith though!) it must be a Sussex thing...

    I've tried to be veggie, but my downfall came in the shape of a meatball sub! Since i'm on a kosher diet now, I find eating veggie is a lot easier than trying to follow a load of rules. Just skip the meat altogether!

    Wow, another Natalie on the English course. What are the odds?

    wow cool, lots of veggies & people to go to gigs with! I have quite random music taste, last 2 gigs I went to were sigur ros and seth lakeman, who is gorrrrgeous might I add, the violin talent he has is just the icing on the cake.

    Hey..Im Dan, im 18 and from Bath!

    Im almost certain im going to Sussex, although i leave everything to last min so I haven't applied yet!

    I'm going to study Media Practise and Theory too, and i'm not a vegetarian ..(sorry but i love my burgers too much ). I love my music (pretty much everything apart from the r+b n hip hop), film making, going to cinema, playing the drums (does anyone know if there are music rooms with a drum kit at sussex for drummers like moi to practise on!?!?!) and going to gigs... I've done a levels, but am currently in a 'gap year' working and fast tracking a further two a levels in english and psychology (stupid i know)... but i got an unconditional at Sussex!..(so no real need to pass the a levels im fast tracking!!)

    I don't know what accomodation to choose!..i would really like an en-suite so lewes court p2 looks really attractive, but its price doesnt!..east slope looks cool because of the parties and because its the cheapest, but i suppose i just want a friendly place to live in which is comfortable!...*shrugs*..i don't know! - where is everyone else applying for accomodation!?.. it also seems like there are going to be alot of girls going to sussex and hardly any blokes!.. not that im complaining of course , but still it would be nice to know that some other blokes are going too!

    Hey everyone

    My name is Hannah, and hopefully(!) I will be joining Sussex Uni this September to do English! Unfortunately I am not vegetarian (sorry), but I love going to gigs, and I love music, into all indie stuff, rakes, arctic monkeys, kooks,strokes, kings of leon etc and also some older stuff like the pixies, blondie,the cure etc etc etc. Anyone else like similar museeek?

    I'm thinking East Slope is the way to go, party central it seems, which is good good :p: I'm a big shimmying fan, so nights out dancing it up are gonna be required methinks. Southampton is my insurance choice, or will be, as I haven't accepted for definite yet, but woooop Sussex looks pretty damn funky.

    Yeah they used to get a bit samey but they're new stuff is getting more interesting I think.

    What accommodation you thinking of choosing? I thought East Slope but I'm getting mixed opinions on all of them :O

    Well from what I've heard, it sounds like it's not that likely that you'll get what you choose anyway! I figure it's all liveable, so it doesn't reeeeally matter. I've put Park Village as my first choice, even though some people say it's not good ... other people say they love it! And it's one of the cheaper ones When I went to a Sussex Open Day, I saw inside East Slope and it looked rather grotty. But then what do you expect from student accommodation..

    ... so yeah, those are my thoughts You'll probably enjoy wherever you end up. (he says hopefully)

    Nothing can be as bad as the accomodation at Brighton uni, yucky! Even the show flats looked horrible.

    I used to like the strokes but find their new stuff is kind of a dirge. Hannah, you have great music taste. Kings of Leon AND blondie! Hope to see you in sep!
