    Pretty self-explanatory, I looked on the Facebook forum they linked in my acceptance e-mail but it's not particularly active. I also joined a FB group for 2014/2015 newcomers, was just wondering if there was anywhere to just chat to people? It'd be nice to get to know some other freshers before-hand!

    Accommodation offers are on the 18th, and then I suppose you can figure out who might be nearby too.

    I'm guessing that some of these options might pick up a bit more in a few days?

    On facebook there's a Fresher page which is quite active, and I was on an offer holder/applicant page which was quite busy too while we were only offer holders and applicants and not definite students.

    I'm Grant and I appear to be one of only two people studying American History at UEA so it would be good to meet some others studying that or something similar! There's a Facebook group which has over 1,400 members that seems to be quite active but you have to be accepted by the moderators.

    The uni set up fb pages for each hall- these are usually active, once you know where you will be staying you can join that to chat to others in your block at least.

    Anyone else moving up from Wales?

    Also, are there any people who are going to be studying Law with American Law? I haven't seen anyone mention it, so I'll most likely have to see when I get there..

    Same with me I'm doing American History, which I believe is in the same department as your course?
