Is there an official facebook group for people to join who will be starting in September?
The only reason I ask is that the university I was previously at had one created by the SU, and I know some of my friends at other universities have got something similar which allowed people to find people on their course a LOT easier, as well as act as a proper forum throughout the year for people with questions to do with the university, organising events/societies, finding new friends, posting lost student cards............ the list goes on really. I think it would be pretty useful to just have an official group with everything in one place.
At the moment I'm in about 5/6 groups and everything is all over the place and it's difficult to find people who I may be living/studying with. Also I've had 3 friend requests from different accounts called "Sheffield Hallam Accommodation", and god knows how many friends requests from people (mostly girls..) with "Sheffield Hallam Fresher Helper" in their profile picture. I'm assuming these accounts are nothing to do with the university?
Questionable decision-making and constant surprises
