    I didn't join my one until I'd actually got my grades, for fear of jinxing everything (in retrospect, this was a good decision! ). The guy who set it up ended up as my next door neighbour!

    I joined it to try and suss out who the other people doing my subject were. Except they didn't bother joining :rolleyes:

    i havnt joined yet just incase i dont get in - but as soon as i get my grades i probably will - i suppose you can get to know a few people on your course/in your college/hall etc - so when you get there you allready know one or two people - makes it less scary i think

    You can end up meeting people on the same course or living in the same halls as you, and this gives you a chance to try and get to 'know each other' so it's not so new and awkward before you get there and you already know a familiar face?

    I've joined, and people from the groups add me and then when I see the FR's i ignore them cos i don't know the person, then later think, oh maybe they were someone from bristol. post exam results i might start accepting a few FR, but I generally wouldn't unless I already knew them first!

    and tbh, I already know enough people going to the same uni with me (about 7) and to be honest am not fussed about getting to know people before hand! I'd rather get to know people when I get there. lol.

    I'm part of one but don't really go on it, I'd rather make friends when I start instead of some e-buddies before hand. Seems to kinda defy the point of moving away etc!

    This is assuming that every course has its own facebook group.

    Most people add me and say nothing, pretty pointless. I have formed quite a good friendship with one girl, though.

    i don't see the issue, its a good way to sort of meet people before uni, get info on the uni, maybe lucky to start talking to a flat mate before you move in

    plus SU will post info about freshers week and stuff like that

    It's very handy. I have joined my Uni's fresher group and it's been great. I know who's living next to me and who's in my flat and everything. It's brilliant, when I move in in September I won't not know anyone so we can just get talking and stuff. It's gonna be great.
