Freshers Week Sold OutWatch
I have panicked a lot as I feel without these freshers events I won't make any friends, especially as I'm living at home, any help would be appreciated.
If you're looking to make proper friends then you're often better trying people from within your course or join and get involved in lots of societies. You'll have more interests in common and some sort of activity can help break the ice.
If you're in halls it's also worth trying to introdice yourself to neighbours, they may let you join in any parties or pre drinks they're having. They may even be in the same situation as you and not booked freshers events, so may let you join some fun heading out into town or to other places.
