    During term time, how often would you like to visit your family and loved ones if you lived away from home?

    - Occasionally weekends
    - Occasionally weekdays
    - Only during holiday period
    - Whenever feel like it
    - Never

    I only ever go back to where I grow up during the holidays and even then a week is far too long. I hate where I come from and I hope to never return once I graduate. I will never consider that place "home"

    I only went back during holidays but it was always my plan for my uni city to become my home anyway.

    I have never gone home during term time. In first year my parents visited mid-term in first and second term, though not third, and in second year (current) I've not had anyone visit during term. This is due to two things - it's a 3 hour drive between home and my uni town, so they'd have to stay the night really, and also I'm way too busy during term to be able to sacrifice a whole day or two.

    Never.

    I don't go back in the holidays either as I consider myself fully moved out now (living with boyfriend etc). I visited for four days just before Christmas but that's the only time I've been back since August. I live 8 hours away, it's quite a trek.

    I go home maybe two or three times a semester. My uni is 90 miles away from home, so sometimes my parents come up to visit me for a couple of hours.

    Is that because you now have more coursework to do in your second year or perhaps you have met new friends so prefer to stay at university?

    And where are you from, may I ask? There must be something good about this place?

    I'm from a tiny town in the South East. There's honestly nothing good about it at all. It's the vilest place on earth
