    Mainly the Xmas balls for the respective halls. But you've missed that boat. The summer balls are in two parts I think. The halls ones anyway, but you don't need to dress up for those

    The actual Uni summer ball is casual during the day and then smart at night! This year, for example,I will be wearing my Kilt!
    Nice one, and thanks for the reply!

    Thanks for the replies, and just one other question :P. I know there's an image of students going out clubbing every other night, but does everybody go clubbing? I mean I'd go occasionally as I'm not some kind of recluse and probably will during fresher's, but on the whole I'm not a massive fan of clubbing and prefer going to pubs/bars.

    have you seen other people asking that on this forum? its a very common question (we need a uni FAQ, srsly)
    People at uni go out as much as they want to go out, theres massive variation. In first year some people went out every night, some people once a week, some people hardly ever. Theres always going to be people who go out more than you and people who go out less, so nobody ever feels left out

    During freshers' if you don't go clubbing you WILL be alone, but come the end of the first semester people tend to hang out with people with similar interests. I'd say a lot of students like to go clubbing occasionally like you say so you'll be okay. Probably less students who don't like clubbing at all though.

    Most of all, just be open minded and meet as many people as possible :yep:

    Thanks for the replies. Yeah, it's not that I refuse to go clubbing outright or anything - more that I prefer bars and pubs. :beer:

    I don't go clubbing ever, I feel really uncomfortable in crowded places and can't actually stand being in a club.. so yeah I was a bit on my own in Freshers, but I had a friend who didn't go out either because her student money didn't come through til the following week, so I just hung out with her. Plus I had society social evenings and stuff like that so I just went alone to those, it was more low key

    Yes, about a week ago, and there is still no reply. I can’t register because it says my email address isn’t valid and I've tried every email address I have!
    There must be something wrong with the email addresses I’m using…
