On the Sunday, I went out with flatmates and ended up meeting some guys from my course. We had a great time and ended up organising all going to the course meeting together in the morning.(this was very lucky because I ended up having to leave my flat. I had been placed in an all girl's flat and the other girls didn't agree with guys entering the flat, so would call security any time we were cooking or predrinking in the kitchen and even if we were in my room all watching tv etc) This consisted of being shown all the buildings we would be using, seminars on what to expect and free doughnuts. On the Monday night we all predrunk I'm their flat then headed to the nearest club: Academi. The only way to describe Academi really is it's a school disco rather than a club. Its owned by the university. A large room with bars each side and seating throughout. It can be fun if you're wasted, but otherwise, steer clear. On the Tuesday we had more seminars to attend and there was a biological sciences social in the evening in Bar Uno then a pub crawl. In upper Bangor we went to Paddy's (Bangor's Irish bar-best place to get guiness, usually empty apart from on St. Patrick's Day, when you would be lucky to get through the door), Rascals (a bar with some nice cocktails, also has a higher level opened sometimes called the loft which plays jungle, reggae, ska etc) and a few other places in lower Bangor. On Wednesday we had nothing throughout the day so went to the Freshers fair,which was quite small but people were freindly. we decided to kick off the night early and began predrinking, then we headed straight to Peep(now called Cube, formerly Octagon). Peep is the only "real" club in Bangor. It has 2 floors, 3 bars and 3 defined dance floors. Although it wouldn't compare to other city clubs, it's the best Bangor's got and can produce a great night. Sometimes they have themed nights e.g. UV paint, foam etc,On the Thursday we attended some interesting talks and got more free food.in the evening we predrunk then went to Academi, then headed to Embassy ( this club no longer exists, it was bought and revamped in my second year and was renamed Revive, but the revival didn't work). The current equivalent to this would be Club dB (formerly Oscars in my first year). The next day we met our other lecturers and learnt about course content. We then went on a pub crawl to lower bangor. We started in spoons, then went to the harp (became our favourite for second and third year),then varsity ( clubby bar) more like a club than Academi, then we went to the Albion (locals pub), then the Waterloo (Locals clubby pub), white lion (gym bar - good cheesey tunes), then Oscars (now dB), then skerries ( good local pub, jukebox and pool table) then the boatyard (restaurant with bar,also has a nice outside area) then the tap and spile (pub by the pier, wonky pool table but great selection of ales). On Saturday we once again attended Peep after predrinks and a few pubs, it was a foam party, which made the floor super slippery. Got knocked out after slipping down the stairs! The next day we went for a walk to Anglesey and stopped off in the antelope (pub by menai bridge), where we had some great food and drinks. Overall it was a fun Freshers week. And the small size of Bangor make the transition much easier as everywhere was in walking distance and it was easy to meet people.
