    Hi mate,

    I know quite a few 'freshers' who have never touched a drop of drink, You can get on with other flat mates without drinking, my mate just joins in with the drinking games but with a soft drink.

    I've just finished university and I remember thinking the same thing. In the end, it was totally fine. There's a range of activities available, so you just go to the one that suits you. I went to Newman and they try to hold activities for a range of students, including those who don't drink and mature students with children etc.

    Feel free to ask me anything

    I think that joining in drinking games but have something non alcoholic in your glass or bottle is the best solution. It shows that you're not anti social and you'll be respected more than if you don't join in at all. Same with nights out, go out with your flatmates or friends from your course.
