Do you HAVE to go to Fresher's week? Watch
Someone told me you have to go mainly just to join clubs and societies and to just get your card (lol which card, I don't even know - library card? NUS card? hehe)
If this is the case, can you just get all that and not come for the rest of the week?
This is just for argument's sake.. was just wondering.
More about the University of Manchester
Thankfully as I'm going to be a 2nd year I only have 2 hours of lectures that week.
You can skip all the social bits and just go for the admin, if that's what you're worried about. You'll miss out on meeting people and socialising, though.
getting your uni card
why on earth would you not want to go to freshers week. Its supposed to be one of the best times of your uni life.
And no I haven't got a crucial guide... I hope it comes soon. I go away on Sundat and don't get back till the 11th so if there's anything I have to do I'm screwed
I'm confused too. You have to pay to find out whats on at freshers? or does everyone get the information... if so when because I haven't been sent it
dont have to pay to find out what is on, im sure there will be loadz of people there who will tell everyone what is happening. the not so crucial guide gives you a form that you can send off to get some stuff and the freshers ball ticket, it is 17.50 though, i sent off for it (probebly to the wrong address, as there are 2) and im kind of regretting parting with such a sum of money when i dont actually have a clue. i think a good plan would be to follow the daily stampeed to the union bar?
Pick up you ID/Library card
You'll get a tour of the library(it is fairly large and so will help)
You will also get your course handbook (we had to sign that we'd received it)
Ther may well be first lectures with course guides being given out
Plus as well as meeting other students, you'll met lecturers and have a chance to explore the campus and the city
i'm actually posting for a friend lol, he was wondering if it was compulsory.. he's a bit.. well, a bit sad haha.
secondly, what £17?!?!?!?!?!? omg i don't even know, tell me tell me!!
That's a good deal! Ours is a fair bit pricier than that.
