I'm currently in my first year in a different University of London and having the worst time of my life! I'm a very sociable person and really looked forward to uni, but it has so far been one giant let down. The main problem was my halls of residence, I was in a self catered flat with only 3 other people (2 of which did not speak English), I was very lonely since access to other flats was restricted and meeting other people almost impossible, so all my friends came from my course. Moving halls was a nightmare, however I finally found someone to swap with however these halls are not much better (most students are postgrad, and it is very very quiet). Don't get me wrong, I love the friends I have made, however none are like me, I enjoy drinking/clubbing/parties, none of the people I have met so far are like this and I'm not living the student life I expected/want to live. My friends from home are all having an amazing time and after visiting them I just feel that this isn't the right university for me. People seem very very very focused on work and lectures and very much less on socialising and making new friends. However, I do love London and do not want to leave. I have been looking at King's, and I'm really interested in some of the mathematics courses.
Basically, what can you tell me about the Kings student life....?
