just posted this on another guys thread but have added extra, may be of use..
induction week is best i been to and have been to five diff induction weeks posing as fresher student at friends uni's. anyway sorry. ur probs make friends within a day, and altho it seems daunting it can also be exciting, so just relax and enjoy it, remember theres no work to be done for a month so just enjoy it as much as you can! the most fun starts when u get to share a house with a donkey breeder, a metal guitaist, and three french speaking bohemian girls..so the halls are good but its not all over after the first year.
huddersfields uni is unselfishly cool without admitting it although student union small, town can either be a topman or topshop paradise with house clubs and trendy bars or a secret gonzo blues filled adventure with porn cinemas above carpet warehouses (on the way to birkby).
depending upon your taste uni offers good nights out, but for me its better to explore town and surrounding areas, great views (castle hill), great people (local bar owners-mad 5ft"er-the Swan); just up to you to explore,
music wise camel club has good northern soul nites to funky house to hiphop.
but with leeds nearby (cockpit) dont even worry about music venue.
check out everylittle nook and cranny for some excellent stuff, in the imperial arcade is an excellent vinyl shop, us hiphop clothing shop, and of course bong shop.
university has great resources, libarys extensive, and with leeds nearby, nothing to worry about, 24hr pc rooms saved my life.
just dont eat at caspian takeaway across from uni, unless you enjoy pooburgers.sorry.
just enjoy, dont judge anyone, 'work when you have to', and i bet you the huddersfield changes your life!!!
