    I'll give the advice i'm gonna give to my freshers when I become a freshers rep in 2 months time:

    Don't get a bad reputation, say yes to basically anything meaning get involved(don't make excuses not to do something), join at least one society if you can, enjoy it, don't care what other people think but look after yourself, and if you're living in halls, keep your door open most of the time.

    Make the effort to speak to everyone you live with. Two of my housemates didn't move in til halfway through Fresher's week by which time the rest of us thought we were good mates already, and the other two ended up feeling left out.

    If people are quiet, it doesn't mean they don't want to go out or spend time with everyone. Always ask.



    Don't by all the textbooks, no matter what they tell you in lectures.

    Join a society or a team.

    Try everything (Within reason) once.

    If you've got friends from home/school at the same uni, don't rely on them or spend too much time with them. Get to know the new people.

    cereal is acceptable at any time of the day.

    random road signs shopping trolleys count as furniture and decoration

    you will probably never have a better time in your life.

    having said that, you will study three years to get a job in maccy d's

    Life exists outside of your halls.

    I ******* hated people that wouldn't shut up about how great whatever building or block they lived in was, the majority of people imet who lived in halls were the biggest dopes on the ******* planet, substituting loudness and smiles for personalities.

    Girls, not every guy who looks in your direction at the SU isn't trying to **** you, chill out with the discerning looks. damn.

    Pay all bills on time

    Go to at least half of your lectures each week. The whole "you're a student so you should be as lazy as possible" thing does more harm than good. Have fun but don't forget what you're paying three grand a year plus living expenses for.

    You don't just have to socialise with people on your course or at your uni.

    **** over priced club nights. If its more than a tenner and drinks are more than 3.50 then you're paying way too much for a night out.

    If you weren't nailing people left right and centre at sixth form or whatever, you're not gonna turn into a heart throb just because its freshers week.

    Oranges are great for come downs, eat a whole orange before you go to bed or when you wake up and you'll be fine.

    Unless youve got some sort of agreement going on,dont touch other peoples crap in the kitchen, an awkward house is the worst.

    Avoid petty arguments with halls mates/house mates. Try to be rational and adult in every conflict, speak up if you have a problem but don't be rude, snide or confrontational about it, it just makes living with someone a lot easier.

    If there were ever things you wanted to change about yourself or your appearence or anything then uni is the best place to do it.

    if your lecture is at 3...you will probs still be in bed
    2 in the morning is an early night if you stayed in...
    (Original post by nnkuk)
    You will sleep instead of going to lectures, accept it.

    Sundays, 3pm are the best times to go to supermarkets, LOADS of stuff is reduced.

    You drink, or you do not drink, there is NO IN BETWEEN!
    This is why society hates students. I find this mentality a bit embarrasing.

    Say yes to everything. If random people ask you to go out, say yes. If at 10 o clock at night your flat mates suggest a night out, say yes. The people I lived with were never up for anything and never said yes to anything, and at the end of uni have ended up with the same group of 5 friends as when they started.

    Although popping to the pub for a liquid lunch in between lectures may be standard practice, try not to turn up to your afternoon seminar completely plastered and start singing loudly in the middle of someone's presentation.

    Remember that not every member of the opposite sex has the one thing on their mind, most people are just very friendly

    Bring a drink and a packet of M&Ms or something to lectures, people will be mighty grateful for a little pick-me-up in the middle of a 3 hour marathon.
