    I'm an introvert and I don't drink so I haven't really socialized, however I have signed up to some societies and I'm hoping to meet people when my classes start, the concept of freshers week as a whole just doesn't seem to be for me, I know there are non-drinking activities as well but the whole thing just makes me anxious, I'm hoping things will pick up for me once it's all over

    Not that weird, but that's only because you said yourself that you hardly participated. The societies will help out more.

    When I think back to my freshers week, I had met and knew lots of people. None were my friends by the end of the first year. There is plenty of time yet.

    I only went out on the first night but seriously if your flatmates are as good as mine they'll understand if you don't want to.
    But I do hope you're talking to them during breakfast/lunch.

    Best advice is to avoid the crazyness of clubbing and drinking during freshers week. Join a sports club or anything else that sounds good. Make friends on your course and in halls etc.
