Freshers' Week, the week before lectures and studying begins for real, is all about helping first-time students (or 'Freshers') settle in. Head to the Freshers' Fair to join societies and meet people with similar interests. From the LGBT society to the Latin Dance group, the Rowing team to the Real Ale club, you name it, chances are you'll find a club to fit.
You can also expect club nights, comedy evenings and gigs during Freshers' Week. Going along is a great way to break the ice with new friends, just try not to go overboard.
