Freshers week was not at ALL what I expected! Sure, there was just as much drinking as everyone said, with glitter themes, singing on the bus and ruthless games of never have I ever. But the amount of daytime activities, such as barbecues, and also evening, non-drinking activities really impressed me. At York there is a system called STYCs where second years who used to live in your flat, redo Freshers to show you where everything is, give you all the tips on the best takeaways, and just organise your life whilst you settle in. I soon realized none of my friends had this, and honestly wondered how they coped!! Freshers week was a blast, and I can't wait till next year!
