Hi!
I'm going to be joining Warwick this year to study Computer Science. I'm a bit nervous!! Do you have any tips having gone through it before . (also as a female student do you feel safe at Warwick? I watched a documentary about the 2018 group chat case and it kinda shook me up a bit)

Hey!
My biggest advice would be put yourself out there and be open to meeting everyone. The first few weeks are perfect to start gaining those connections! Societies are great to join and I highly recommend, you’ll likely feel much more comfortable and people are really open to getting to know you. However don’t force yourself into uncomfy situations.

Regarding safety I feel extremely safe, personally I have never felt that I was under threat. I totally understand your concern as I too was really worried before I arrived but I think it has gotten better for women over the years. I’ve only had one uncomfortable encounter during freshers but it was nothing serious and with my friends I was able to remove myself from the situation.

Hope it all goes well! Trust me it seems scarier than it actually is, because everyone is in the same boat you will likely be feeling the exact same way as all other freshers :smile:
