    well its just about doing what you want, you can move in on the 23rd september and do nothing but register for everything you need to register for library etc

    its just about making friends and settling in

    the drunkeness of the week is just a cliche that doesnt have to be adhered to, especially if you're skint.

    You don't have to get drunk in Freshers week and there are plenty of things to do for those without money. There were taster sessions for all different sports, even the more unusual ones like Kenpo, fencing and archery. At the squash (freshers fair) you get lots of freebies! Some people end up joining a large amount of societies and spending huge amounts of money. Bit of advice look round and if you want to join something join it after the Squash, else you end up joining everything. People are very persuasive!

    I would always recommend going to Freshers week, because it is the main time you meet people and get to know those people you are living with. If you don't like drinking to much then don't drink to much. I think freshers week is as fun as you make it.

    Enjoy!

    The only "compulsory" things are the meetings about your department. They also say the finance talk is "compulsory" but it's all just common sense, so unless you have none whatsoever then I wouldn't bother. The Guild talk is excellent though, go to that.

    Other than that, you do whatever you please

    Fencing? Brilliant! I always wanted to have a go at that.

    I'm quite glad getting rat-arsed isn't 'compulsory', mainly cos I'm skint, but also because I'm, well, not all that keen on it. :rolleyes:

    I think everyone feels like that, you just have to put yourself out there and start a conversation about anything. although im sure that sign would be a good talking point!
