Next month I'm going to be moving into Halls of Residence (Deanery) to start my Multimedia Journalism degree at Solent and all the Facebook groups, Twitter posts and everything I can see for 1st years right now is about Freshers and these AAA Bands.
Unfortunately I don't drink, nor do I like partying/clubbing very much, but I know that Freshers is a time where lots of people make friends and meet everyone and I'm worried that if I don't end up doing all the events and going to clubs during Freshers Fortnight that I'll just be labelled as unsocial and I won't meet many people but then if I do go to these events I know that I won't be enjoying myself very much.
I've basically accepted the fact that I will have to go to a few of these clubbing events in an attempt to actually make friends but I was wondering if anyone knows of any activities/events during freshers that don't include going to a sweaty club and getting hammered??? Because all I can see right now is "RAVE" "BAR CRAWL" etc and I'm just a little concerned that by not drinking and not wanting to go to these things that I'll be a sort of outcast I suppose?
Also is there anyone reading this who possibly feels the same? (I don't suppose there will be)
What do you think?
