6 Things That Happen At Uni


A new load of freshers have started moving into student halls. How was that me 3 years ago? *cries* it can be really strange moving away from home for the first time let alone at 18, feelings will be all over the place. Excited, nervous, apprehensive and even a little sad. Parents are probably crying whilst you're trying to look cool in front of the flatmates you've just met. When you finally say goodbye to crying family, its time to put everything where you want it, meet the people you'll be living with for a year (or possibly longer) and have some drinks. You have so much to look forward to...

1) Mocked for your accent/where you're from

Accent? I don't have an accent. Yes, yes you do. You'll meet people from around the country/world and everyone has seen The Only Way Is Essex. If you are from Essex, say the standard 'catchphrase' before anyone else has a chance to. I'd like to say as people become friends they let it go, but they don't. You'll always be known as the Essex Girl.

2) The weird flatmate

This isn't a myth. In a perfect world everyone will be drinking together and all be best buddies. The reality is 6/6 people that have been thrown together aren't all going to mix. Even if you start off with a bottle of Sourz and shot glasses, you still aren't that likeable. If you don't have a weird flatmate, its probably you...

3) Getting so very, very drunk

Uni towns mean cheap booze. Cheap booze means all lessons about alcohol you already know are thrown out the window. New limits. You'll probably be sick. Chunder. Even if you are one of those teens that doesn't/didn't really drink much, not living under your parents roof - the inevitable will happen. You'll be super embarrassed and hilariously awful photos will be taken. Life will go on though. And, to be honest you'll carry on getting super drunk.

4) Friends for life

Weird flatmate aside, the people you meet will near enough instantly become your friend group/urban family. Within two weeks it'll feel like you've known each other for ages. The crazy stuff you'll get up to together means you have to be friends anyway. They have seen things. Some of those people know so much about you, you could be a specialist subject on Mastermind.

5) You decide

If you didn't go to college this is the first time in education you're treated like an adult. The loan is in your name. The debt. Lecturers aren't ma'am or sir but Steve or Julie! Independent. You can be who you want to be. If you want to go out the night before a 9am lecturer, thats on your shoulders, Mum won't phone in sick for you.

6) The best time ever

Most importantly you'll have the best time ever at uni and will never want to leave.
