    I'm totally about to voice world's most unpopular opinion, but here goes nothing! I've been reading through the SUBU Freshers Events Guide and while some things sound absolutely awesome, I'm not too keen on others.

    I like to think I'm quite fun to be around (doesn't everyone??), but as an introvert and a more mature student I'm not sure if the clubbing nights, especially all by myself, really will be for me. However, I am very aware of everyone telling me to "have the student experience" etc. How much going out will be necessary to gain the full scope but not be exhausted after 7 days of non-stop socialising?

    I'm quite glad to not live in student housing as that means that I can "retreat" now and then, but like I said, I don't want to only stay in and I am happy to push myself out of my comfort zone.

    Hey, I'm a mature student too, (very mature) so not sure what freshers week will hold. I'm having to move into halls, so see who my housemates are I guess. As for going out for freshers week I'm sure it wont be that bad, you don't have to go out every night and I'm sure there will be other people who would rather not be out every night. Your choice of day time activities will I'm sure lead you to interact with like minded students with whom you can socialise.
