    One word: Internet. Makes distance friendships so much easier (and cheaper). To tell you the truth, though, I've probably spent as much time at home as I have on my (thoroughly appalling) course.

    Yeah, I'd like to know that too - I really really really don't want my circle of friends to drift apart, but I think it's probably inevitable. I'm going to try and keep in contact by email as best I can, but it can't be the same as seeing each other in school every day.
    Do those people, already at uni, find that they still find as much to talk about with their old friends, as before, when they meet up in holidays and so on?

    My friends have gone to uni this year and you do totally drift apart. It becomes very difficult to get the whole gang together and you end up repeating stories hundreds of times to each person!
    The people who I'd now count as my closest friends are the ones that have stayed at home this year too.

    Saying that I'm in better contact with a friend in Uganda than I am one in Oxford.
