Like you successfully did last year, it is possible to experience freshers’ week sober, so do not let anyone pressure you into drinking. You can have a good time without alcohol, FACT, so stay true to who you are and everything you stand for.
Make sure you give it your all when it comes to making friends. Last year, you had “Don’t want to replace my home friends” at the back of your mind, and this held you back. Obviously don’t be all up in people’s faces (no one wants that), but still make an effort. And don’t be disheartened if some peeps don’t warm up to you, it can and might happen!
You’ll be tempted to just stick with your pals from last year, but make sure you branch out and meet new people, that’s the point of freshers! Do not alienate people. I repeat: Do. Not. Alienate. People.
Finally, have fun! Medics’ freshers will be a blast, so make sure you make the most of it 🙂
Lots of love,
