Kent goes all out for their Freshers week, trying to get students involved from the get go. There are welcome helpers on the door of each accomodation ready to help you get settled and find your room, which can be really difficult to find if you are living in places like Eliot or Rutherford! They leave you a few hours for teary goodbyes and to stick pictures of your beloved pets on your new bedroom wall, and then the epic pub crawl. I say epic, it is kind of a mess to be fair. Imagine a hoard of nervous Freshers ready to attack anyone who even half looks at them to make their first friend at University. Don't worry if you don't find your soulmates tonight, or if you meet to many people you aren't even sure about, there will be so many more opportunities and so many more people you will meet in your three years as an undergrad. In fact, the next week is packed with Venue nights, foam night being the most terrifying out of the lot - whoever thought foam inhalation was good for Freshers was not too smart. But also many things to do with your new course mates and friends during the day and not to forget the fayre, whee you will be introduced to the societies that will carry you through the toughest time of your student career. And if you are not that kind of person, you have time to explore the area with your dormmates, housemates, or random strangers you meet on campus, because everyone is in the same boat and everyone wants to make friends. My last piece of advice is: don't do anything that makes you uncomfortable, don't go anywhere with anyone without telling the people you are with, stay safe, drink plenty of water, call home if you need to, have fun and keep plenty of aspirin ready for when Freshers flu kicks in. Good Luck!
