i mean was there anything u found out that u should of been told about but weren't.
* Stock up on uni supplies well in advance before you get there. Buy 1 or 2 things a week from now until you leave. You wont notice £2, £3 a week, you will however notice when you go out to buy it all the week before you go and you end up spending £300. I dont just mean folders and that kind of stuff, I mean more or less everything you are likely to need, shampoo, cosmetics etc. Doesnt sound like much now, but you'll really appreciate the fact that you dont have to go out and spend loads of extra money at the last minute/when you are there.
* When your walking into uni, make sure you have both hands busy-(rumage around in your bag if you have to) to avoid the 6000 flyers you will get shoved at you every single day every single time you walk past.
* If your vein (like me) make sure the passport photos you send off to the uni are alright, they are literallyput on everything, and you'll end up with so many photo cards that you have to use all the time (like your library card), so unless you want to be flashing a super dodgy pic constantly make it a good one!
* Dont join societies that you have to pay for during freshers! So many people go, and join, and pay their £2 here there and everywhere and then never end up getting involved in anything they organise. If you want to join a society that you have to pay for, go away and think about it, or see what events they put on, join the mailing list etc, but dont part with cash until you know you want to join and participate.
They flush your head down the toilets.
Don't drop the soap, oh wait wrong place...
Yeah, got to agree with other posters here. Everyone is different. If you are living in catered halls, it will be less of an adjustment than, say, living in a house where you need to cook for yourself. Basically, it's living away from home.
Alcohol doesn't damage your liver as long as you drink it really, really fast. This will get you through Fresher's week.
Remember, the more of it and the faster you drink it, the better you'll be.
Go out at every point during Fresher's week and mingle with as many people as possible. That way you'll have the best chance of making lots of friends.
You should be aware of the fact that uni isn't everything its cracked up to be!
And also that it isn't not everything its cracked up to be
People are just as stupid as they were in school, they don't magically grow up when you go to uni they're still ****s.
Meet as many people as possible during freshers week - its the only time when everyone is still friendly - any time afterwards they're not as likely to strike up a conversation in the lift or in random places like the laundry room.
save up on the change for the washing machines!!!! So what if you move in wiht a shopping bag full of 10 and 20p pieces- at least you will have change when no one else will!!!!
