The Freshers Experience

I have recently finished my first year of university and I really enjoyed every minute of it even though it was not the ending I thought I was going to have. I wanted to share some of my highlights of freshers with you and some tips for upcoming students so that you also have the best time.

I was so nervous before arriving at uni for the first day. The thought of living with people I had never met terrified me. Not only this but cooking my own meals too. I know some people won’t get along with their flat but thats okay there are plenty of other places to find friends and meet new people. I was lucky enough to get along well with my flat.

Everyone was as nervous as me when we arrived so it made me feel a bit more comfortable that i was not the only one feeling this way. Once everyone arrived and had unpacked we all sat in the kitchen together for hours just talking and getting to know each other. Although it was a little bit awkward at first i’m very glad we did it as I believe this was one of the reasons we became so close. The second day we arranged to go around and see the city together so we could become more familiar with the place that we would call home for the next 3 years. This was a very fun activity because again it gave us more to talk about and more time to get to know each other. A benefit of this activity is if the conversation runs dry you can still talk about the surroundings.

The next week the freshers events began.There are events designed for both those who do and do not drink so it allows everyone to be included. I went to a mixture of the two events, during freshers everyone is looking to meet new people so this is your chance to be brave and talk to lots of new people.

One of the events I most enjoyed was walking around the society stands, this allows you to sign up to different taster sessions to see if its for you as well as making new friends in the process. There are so many different types you are sure to find one that you love! As well as this lots of different businesses will be offering discounts and free items so make sure to keep an eye out for those.

If you have any feedback please comment below as well as if you would like to see a freshers packing guide, or what to cook at university etc.

  1. I spent a lot of time getting to know my uni flatmates in my first few weeks and it was the best decision. We all did everything together – went to register for class, registered at the doctors, went for ID cards. We ended up being such good friends which was everything I could have asked for for my first year x

  4. I wish I’d made the most of freshers more when I started uni a few years ago. I definitely didn’t take advantage of the opportunities and so wish I had! I did make friends through my uni class though! You sound like your had a fab time at your freshers! I wish I could go back tbh!x
