    When you get accepted into a freshers page you will be bombarded with fresher promoters trying to sell you tickets to icebreaker, superfresh etc. Last year I bought £40 worth of tickets and didn't go to any of them! Me and my flat and floor all went to the SU events which were amazing! So be careful and don't buy anything too early, when they say they are sold out/ selling out - they actually aren't its a marketing technique.

    Freshers flu is real I got laryngitis and for 4 days of freshers i couldn't speak (but i still drank paint stripper vodka)
    My advice go out, meet people and make effort!

    yer just have fun and watch out for the flu, there is nothing you can do about it, you will get it as everyone gets it. You can buy freshers wrist bands which I think were £40 that let you get into every club in town for the week, but the clubs generally are cheap but they might charge more as its freshers.
