Today I want to share with you my personal experience of Freshers’ Week and with that, also point out what amazing work the Students’ Union does to ensure that we have a great university experience!As you can probably guess by now, I am not the biggest party animal (Friday night to me means doing some baking and having a long bath – the perks of working weekends!). But I still wanted to experience Freshers’ Week and hoped to make some friends. When I showed up to the first event, I realised that somehow most people actually already contacted their new housemates and were in groups already. To save myself from utter embarrassment, I planned to just have a quick drink and leave to go home to cry. But somehow, a lovely girl must have seen how horrible I felt and she came over and invited me to sit with her and her friends; all were lovely people! So I actually managed to really enjoy myself and was upset when I had to leave. With them, I made the plan to attend the Freshers’ Fair (basically the best event ever as you find out lots of cool stuff and you get free goodies!).
