    Im starting uni next month, and im in my uni's freshers group on Facebook and everyone is talking about going to all these freshers parties etc. The thing is, none of my friends applied to my uni, so i dont know anyone at the uni. What do i do? Do i just not go to any freshers parties? Can i bring my friend(s) that dont attend the uni, to the freshers parties?

    Also, is it 'unusual' for people to not go to freshers parties? Im so confused right now.

    You can bring your friends if you want, but generally people go with their flatmates or go and meet people there. Most people don't know anyone before they start either

    Not unusual - just completely up to you!

    Thanks for the above responses. I know it will differ between the uni/events or whatever but for freshers parties, can you only buy tickets beforehand or would it be possible to buy tickets at the door?

    Hello

    It doesn't matter that none of your friends applied to your university, that's not what Freshers events are about. The SU and clubs arrange Freshers events for social reasons - it's about ice-breaker events and making friends. You will make friends at the events and such - and if you are living in halls, you'll go with people from your halls.

    You can bring friends from outside your university, I've seen people do it but priority goes to students of the university and such.

    Best of luck
