5 Things Not To Do After The Freshers Week Is Over

Freshers admission

Before you arrived at university, all sorts of fresher tips were probably thrown your
way, but it doesn’t stop just yet. Here are five things to avoid once that week of hedonistic behaviour is over…

1. Don’t be close-minded when meeting new people
It’s normal and understandable to stick with the group of friends you made in freshers’ week,but not to the point of literally spending all your time with them and not making an effort to meet
other people. University is one of the best environments to socialise with people from all different walks of life, so take advantage of every opportunity that will enable you to get to know other students, such as joining societies and going to course socials. Meeting new people is a
large aspect of university life for the pure reason that it makes your time at uni more enjoyable,but it will also boost your confidence and communication skills massively.

2.Dont get too drunk on every night out
We all know that being a fresher involves a lot of drinking. Getting turned away from the club because you’re too drunk, your flatmates having to take you home early – we’ve heard it all before. But don’t let this happen routinely throughout the term as it will soon annoy your flatmates who will inevitably have to take responsibility for you every time you go out. You won’t want to be known as the burden on nights out and end up not getting invited out again, so keep those drunken nights in moderation…

3. Don’t spend all your money at once
It’s very tempting to splurge your student loan in freshers’ week, but have some self-control.Yes it’s freshers, but remember this money is to last you the Semester, not just freshers’ week.Create a budget for yourself and work out how much money you can spend a week to last you
until Christmas. You don’t want to be in a position where you can’t even afford to buy chapo beans–trust me, it happens.

4. Don’t be messy
When you get a notification from the university cleaners asking you to clean the flat before they arrive to clean, you and your flatmates will most likely be asking yourselves, ‘Why do we need to clean before the cleaner comes? Isn’t that their job?’. True to an extent, but when it comes to washing up dirty dishes and chucking away mouldy food, that’s YOUR job! Always make sure to clear up after yourself for the sake of the cleaners and your flatmates. You won’t want to
annoy your flatmates by continuously leaving your clutter around.

5. Don’t miss your contact time with tutors

Missing the odd lecture every now and then is fine, but regularly missing contact time with your tutors won’t help in the long run. Even though first year doesn’t count towards your final grade,
treat going to lectures and seminars as practise for second and third year. Definitely make time for socialising and enjoying yourself, but you are at uni to study and get a degree. You are paying good money to be there so don’t let it go to waste.
