Save your money and go out once you've made proper friends. You don't meet anyone on a night out that will remember you or contact you. Go to all your classes as they give insights into the year which are really important.

It was my second year so I didn't have any high expectations with first years freshers being so boring. Move in was pretty simple and uneventful. We boycotted all of the events that were put on as it's just a waste of money and went into town instead. Better music and cheaper prices

This week was crucial to make friends and join clubs!! We had a freshers fair that introduced us to everything and anything (even a puppy society) you name it there would be a society for it !! I went on day trips and pub crawls and loved every second!

I found my first week at Aberystwyth was terrifying but life changing. I was quiet and shy on my first few days, but everyone that I talked to and spent time with from halls was so friendly, and made me feel right at home.

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.

It wasn't what I expected, less clubbing and certainly less events, the SU was pretty weak to be honest, but the societies were awesome. Mostly just drinking, but also loads great games etc going on, also loads of free stuff.
