Hello Readers,

people holding hello baloons

In this blog post, I want to share my guide to fresher’s week to students who want to go to university or are university students.

Why do I want to share a fresher’s week guide to students like me?
Since I have experienced fresher’s week, I decided to create a guide that is suitable for you all!

Before I start this blog post, I hope this blog guide will help you so…
Let’s begin!

Before arriving

  •  Pack at least 4 days before leaving university and that includes clearing out your bedroom.
  •  Shop for everything you’ll need and start uni shopping 3 – 4 weeks before you leave your home.
  • Also, make sure you create a shopping list of what you want to buy for your university.
  •  If you’re scared to meet people face to face, download an app called campus society to meet people who are going to the same university as you!

When you’re at the University

1. Make sure you introduce yourself to your flatmates

If you’re very shy, just take your time.

2. Go to a club or a bar with your flatmates or friends you’ve made in the college

While you’re there, don’t get too drunk! It’s for your own good!
If you’re introverted, create a movie night, bake or talk with your flatmates.

3. Defiantly sit next to someone during your course induction and casually talk to them.

4. If you’re really homesick, calm yourself by watching YouTube videos, Netflix and most importantly, surround yourself with people you connect with.
