    Saw this thread from other universities. So I'm wondering, is there anyone who doesn't/doesn't like to drink going into first year?

    I'm not a big drinker. Although, I am going into first year I'm 23 and have past the 'partying phase'. I hope that there will be a few people that aren't drinkers.

    Yeah, I've never really liked alcoholic drinks at all or going out and drinking. I'm not a fan of drinking culture and what it brings with it. (I'm going into first year by the way (at Aberdeen)).
    Personally, I'd rather go out for a meal with a bunch of friends than go to the pub or clubbing in town. You can have a good time doing other things. If you can't have fun without alcohol then I think that's quite sad.

    I completely agree with you, i much prefer just going for a coffee or something. there's nothing wrong with drinking but if thats all you do then its a bit sad.

    I'm starting 1st year Aberdeen and I'm 24. I rarely drink now, I did all the partying and binge drinking when I was 18-21 ish. I'd rather go with friends for coffee or a meal or even 1 or 2 drinks in the pub - even non alcoholic ones. I often just have an orange juice. Are any of you guys going to be staying in Hillhead? I'm in Wavell House.

    I've booked into Hillhead (North Court/South House) although I don't know if I have an accommodation place yet.
