When I first found out I was going to Uni, I decided the first thing to do was to go and buy a classic freshers wristband to go out with free entry and a shot at each place etc. I assumed EVERYONE would be doing it. Boy was I wrong. Soon arrival into halls I found out barely no one had spent the money to get one. Despite this, a lot of us still went out most nights, to quirky events and quizzes that turned out to be a lot more fun than I was ever expecting. I just wish I didn’t fall into the fresher wristband trap. I met loads of people who were friendly and helpful (and drunk 80% of the time) and I ended up meeting my friends for life there too. I am quiet and not very sociable, but fresher week has events for every walk of life. Picnics, drinking, petting zoos, meet ups, walks. It had the lot so no one felt left out. It made me feel right at home in university.
