Freshers week ruined. Pls helpWatch
All the online social student led events have been booked up fully so i wont be able to go to those. The only social online events are some 'common room drop ins'. The description is that you get to chat to other first years like the booked up ones. What I'm confused about is why there are still like 220 places for the common room ones? (why is it so much less popular? I can't even see the difference). I bet if i book the common room events, hardly anyone will be there.
Thats why I'm worried about my freshers experience. Its quite literally be ruined. I dont think I will be able to talk to or meet anyone before uni starts. By that time, everyone must have met each other and it will make it harder for me to make friends (since I havent gone to the icebreaker sessions).
It's quite dumb how the best part of freshers week isnt even accessible to everyone and some are left out.

I would join my flat group chat but the problem is that I have to make a facebook account which is a pain. I already tried to make one and it got disabled for no reason whatsoever. I cant even use the tsr to find the group since 'posting links to external group chats is not allowed'.
If you join Facebook groups for your university and find your flatmates (joining flat gcs) you should be fine. I think that freshers will just be postponed till quarantine relaxes and places like clubs reopen.
tbh I doubt they will re-open at all before a vaccine, and it's 1 year till it's predicted to be rolled out.
It's been 6 months now since lockdown and loosening of lockdown and the government still has not deemed it safe enough to reopen clubs. coronavirus numbers are now rising again and are significantly above july's numbers. Clubs are not going to reopen for a long long time mate......
