    Hello, i was just wondering this, as currently in sixth form i don't really go out at all. I was wondering how these people get on at university? Do they go out and get to know people etc? Or do they stay in their hall and study and go on the internet etc all day? My brother said there were quite a few people like this, so i just wondered.


    Thanks,

    Yes imagine the sheer number of people that are thrown into one place there is bound to be someone like you or similar and im sure you will find some people the same, just make some friendships with them.

    Or step out of your comfort zone a little, uni is all about changing as most people do, so you never know something that dosent seem attractive now may seem a whole lot more at uni.

    Yep, I'd never been to a nightclub before I went to university, mainly because of geographical restrictions and the fact that my birthday isn't til the end of August anyway, but having been at Uni for a year I became a bit of a party animal :p:

    A totally different person now to this time last year :yy:

    It all depends on you... I never went out in sixth form - didnt have many friends... My first year of uni was good, I went out a few times a week with randomers - 3 years on and now I'm getting texts from so many people begging me to come back cos they miss the random nights

    So it all depends on if you WANT to change - uni is a fresh start, you can completely re-invent yourself.

    Hope you work things out OP

    I almost completely changed my attitude to clubbing. I used to hate it, now I love it.

    I didn't go out clubbing at all at home during sixth form. Mainly because there's nowhere to go apart from the usual RnB/cheesy pop clubs. About the only 'nightlife' I knew of was going to the pub. Uni is so much different, much more of a choice in bars and types of clubs. Don't worry about it in the slightest.

    I would recommend stepping out of your comfort zone at uni though. If you're a bit introverted, you can find many other introverted people and continue as you are. Push yourself to socialise a bit and meet different kinds of people and you'll get a lot more out of the university life. Uni is only a change of lifestyle if you want it to be.

    During high school I was more secluded and isolated but when I got to college I started going out much more because a lot of my friends were more extroverted. I know you're talking about university but I thought I'd throw my 2 cents in anyway. Its more about the people you hang out with tbh, make friends with adventurous and fun people and don't stick to one group and you're bound to have a great social life.

    If you want to change in uni, you'll change. Fresh start, it shouldn't be too hard.

    At sixth form I went to several house parties etc, drank loads and didn't sleep. I've been clubbing a bit, but I met my boyfriend in my gap year and we only went out every now and then due to the both of us working. Now I'm at uni, I still enjoy a night out every now and then but preferably with my boyfriend and away from a lot of the very heavy drinkers that a lot of students are (well I was in first year so I suppose that was part of it). So basically I've done the opposite. A lot of my friends at uni, on the other hand, generally hadn't drunk much at all before, and never really experienced clubbing. So they all went at it head first. I wouldn't worry about it, freshers week gets everyone out whether you're used to it or not, just remember that you don't have to do everything to still have a good time - it's no fun having 2 weeks of no sleep, either hungover or drunk, and trying to get to grips with your course!
