    What advice would you give to a fresher?
    I'd give a few nuggets of advice.

    1). If you're disappointed with the freshers week events, you can get together with other people and make your own events. It's something I did in Goldsmith's and I loved it

    2). You're not likely to make friends for life at freshers, so don't worry if it doesn't work out at that week.

    3). Halls are a bit hit and miss. You're likely to be stuck with people who don't respect your space or be very noisy. Best to get a flat and advertise in the SU that you're looking to flat share.

    4). If you go into halls or flat share, please for the love of God set up rules and plaster them all over the walls in all the rooms. People can forget to do one minor thing and it could turn into an argument quite quickly.

    Hello, no! Actually, I think my work life would be the best time of my life. At least I will be able to freely travel and learn things which are actually applicable in the real world :fyi:

    How would you go about doing this, or bringing up this conversation about rules? I don't wanna seem like the "nagging mum" in the first week of meeting basically strangers

    I got together everyone and we established a physical list of rules for the house. It was simple to ask for everybody's attention and tell them that I don't want us to fight anymore.

    That was when we already knew each other for a few months, though.

    Yeah, it's up there with the Heck**** Olin Model. Completely avoiding macro like the plague. I enjoy reading about the economy, but none of the lecturers even made it remotely interesting IMO.

    I did, and I transferred from QMUL to Goldsmith's as I didn't like the social life or the course. I just left it until the end of first year to do it unfortunately.

    At my new uni, I'm enjoying it and made friends quite easily. At my previous uni, I was all alone and bored.

    Maybe a music teacher or IB.
