    So i've never been great at making friends and socialising, if you're in the same position as me please message me and we could both hang out during freshers fortnight instead of being alone. I have the freshers pass so willing to go to any of the events.

    Why get the pass if you have no plans of going to any of the events? I don't get it?

    I plan to go to the events, I'm looking for someone to socialise with at them/ and possibly later too.

    Everyone will be overly friendly and eager to socialise in the first few days so if you just make an effort to spend a lot of time in the kitchen you're bound to make friends! There's 12 to a kitchen in AV right? And it has a reputation for being a fairly sociable hall, I worried way too much about not making friends and although people say it over and over again, everyone really is in the 'same boat', and it won't be as bad as you're expecting!

    Sixth form is different though, students are local and usually already have friendship groups so if you don't have any to start with, it's harder to make friends. If you drink then that will help during freshers. Just talk to people as much as you can, even if it feels like you're being annoying, it's really easy for friends to turn to aquaintances if you don't work to solidify the friendship at the start. You might miss a few lectures as warwick doesn't have a proper 'freshers week' but I think it's worth it to try to go out as much as you can in the first 2 weeks.

    Also if you're in course group chats (which if not, i'd try to find one on facebook), then sometime during the first week they'll probably arrange to meet up, which I'd recommend joining in on, as you might not click with your flatmates, same thing goes for an Arthur Vick group chat, it's easy to visit someone else's flat if you have friends in other ones. Try to have a positive attitude or you're just setting yourself up to fail!
