Don’t Be Shy

And do it swiftly. Freshers flu is an actual real ailment and you don’t want to further your sulking while feeling poorly away from home if you can’t even get anything for it, or worse still, have to travel home for a doctors appointment while feeling absolutely rubbish.
Try Not To Think Of Home Too Much
You only get on freshers week, don’t ruin it by pining for home. Focus on the here and now and making a new life for yourself at uni. The quicker you do that, the quicker you can enjoy yourself.
This may sound obvious but don’t blow your budget on Freshers week. I know you want to have the time of your life but do remember you actually have to eat and you know, live after that week and you may not have any money coming in imminently. Budget for each day so you know how much you can spare and realisticaly spend.
