So I'm starting University next Saturday (16th) :excited::shock:

I do like to have some now and then.. like I enjoy a pub atmosphere as I prefer drinking socially.. not getting really drunk and going to clubs however:erm: But I am aware drinking can be a big thing at Uni.. my family refuse to believe I won't be drunk (even though I've been drunk once.. and I'm 19 this December).

I've never been in a club but I have gathered a feel of what they have/involve and it doesn't seem like my thing.. but I've noticed that the wristbands are literally just for clubs - everyone* planning on going to some (if not as many as possible). I can see how you'd make some friends but I don't know whether I would miss out on anything.

I know in the day time I'm going to be meeting people in societies, trying to get to know my flatmates Just a little worried about people maybe thinking I'm odd/antisocial for not going to clubs

What I really want to know is.. will I be missing out? Can I make up for not going to the clubs (or going to very few)?

*people in my chats really talking about their freshers' plans

You might change your mind. I'd had maybe two drinks in my life before starting uni. Then I was plastered every night of freshers.

That aside, clubs are not that big a deal. Honestly their main function is for (i) getting laid (ii) getting socially anxious people to talk to each other. There should be plenty of societies and friendship groups which don't revolve around going out.

Clubs can make great memories, but so can a lot of other things, and they'll probably wind up more important. Unlikely you'll make deep or lasting friendships in a club.

Very true... as I expected I didn't enjoy a nightclub..even if I was drunk.. I spent more time wanting to find people.. I think it could be fun if you dance/sing with people you know.. otherwise it's just expensive and kind of dull..:confused:
I'm still confused how people want to actually want to drink this heavy during the week.. and go to the clubs... I drink with my societies and friends - that is it really

Though I have drank more here.. I prefer the social kind though or otherwise I don't see a point
