Re: First week of University
Be sociable, as in don't lock yourself in your room (or even if you are in your room, leave the door open) and you'll be fine. Everyone's in the same boat and looking to meet people so it's easy.
If you're in a flat or something, don't be afraid just to go and knock on the door of other flats and introduce yourself. They're not going to shut the door in your face.
Definitely try things out (the Uni will let you know what's going on), but don't go wild signing up to clubs and stuff, I spent ridiculous amounts on joining fees to societies I never went to.
Also, go easy on the alcohol on the 1st few days, it's tempting to go a bit too hard, because you're at Uni, but you don't want to be "that" drunk one.
Can't really think of anything else right now. Did you have any particular questions?
