Freshers week in Aberystwyth is absolutely crazy. The union puts on some cool events such as Blackhouse and the UV paint party, however, its much better to make your way down the hill into town to really throw yourself into the Aber experience. Most of the major clubs and bars like Pier Pressure, Why Not?, Harley's and Academi hold special freshers nights with deals on drinks and confetti cannons. The freshers fair runs over two days and is packed full of stands offering freebies - if you can manage to drag yourself to campus in your hungover state. Overall its a great week, the nightlife is fantastic and the uni works hard to ensure that you're settling in to the town in into uni life in general well. The uni also works with Saint John's Ambulance and are stationed outside all of the major clubs throughout the week, and year, to help ensure that students are safe and everyone is having fun.
