    So I'm heading up to Stirling University in September, and what kind of drink should I take up?

    This is mostly for meeting people ect, so what do people prefer?

    Probably cans of lager/cider, and a nice big bottle of something to share out with everyone - maybe something you can take shots of?

    Not true at all. My entire flat ended up each bringing a little something to drink on our first night and we ended up bonding because of it. It's nice to share and a perfect ice breaker!

    OP: Go with a few cans of something and maybe a bottle of good vodka. It goes with everything so most people enjoy it.

    which every drink to like to drink :yy:

    cans, and drinks that can be taken as a shot are all good, take what you want to drink

    talking while drink is a very good icebreaker, as people become more social as they drink

    They really don't. Stirling Uni, for all its virtues, is located in a field.

    Oh wow. I applied to Stirling, I only needed a B to get in. Declined them for Glasgow though and Strathclyde :P But my psychology teacher went and she said it was brilliant, hope you have an amazing time and who knows maybe I'll see you there if I don't get in haha

    Voodka! It will be good for sharing and tends to induce happy drunkness. Doing shots is fun too.

    Maybe some Sambucca (can't spell) as lighting shots on fire will make everyone wanna' get naked with you.

    Stop being brown noses and start being takers. Nobody likes a browny and sharing is for dweebs.

    I never realised that. Great opportunity to get to grips with home brew though!

    Don't worry you will no doubt find other drunk people to make friends with if everyone in your corridor doesn't drink :P
