I met so many people in freshers week but my close friends I met months later. I feel more could have been done to make freshers feel at ease

The freshers fair was good once inside but unfortunately because of the location the queues were horrendous and so it took well over half an hour to get inside. The events during the week were varied but actually quite poorly organised. The halls I lived in were fantastic for moving in, with very little fuss and a good tour around the area.

People really tend to have expectations of freshers’ week that are far too high for what the reality of the situation is. You’re literally clubbing with strangers

There were good events but I wouldn't buy any tickets before you go to uni. You want to go with people you meet and not just randomly go to clubs and parties immediately. Clubs especially fail because you don't know anyone and it just is weird clubbing by yourself with people you just met.

My halls provided lots of help in moving in on the official moving in weekend making it very easy, we were given welcome packs on arrival with information about the city and various freshers events. Freshers week is weird because you’ll meet so many people that you most probably won’t talk to again but lots of fun getting to know your flat mates and course mates. For new students I would definitely say take part in as many freshers events as possible and sign up to loads of societies that will keep you posted on different events throughout the year.

The freshers events organised by the SU were very poor. The wristband was fairly cheap, but some of the events were awful. Considering Bristol as a whole has a great night life, it was very disappointing. There was also minimal attempts to encourage hall bonding - eg no tshirts, no bar crawls or anything. Same for subjects. There was also basically no non-night our things worth going to besides the freshers fair.

Great freshers week! Loads of nights out and different things to do and plenty of opportunities to meet people in and outside of your halls! Also lots of great clubs and societies to sign up to.

Beer, food, beer, food, beer, food, and so on, occasionally a bit of sleep but only when it’s starting to get light... freshers is effectively your schools “induction/meeting day” dragged out into a week or more. However because it’s uni there is copious quantities of alcohol and over rated nights out, I’m not complaining.

I had a fantastic time but largely because I got very lucky with my friends and flatmates etc. Met great people very quickly, had good nights, liked my course etc etc etc

The nights out were really good. Met loads of people very quickly because of them. There could have been more organised on the first day though - everyone was just kind of milling around and the design of my building made it that my room was pretty disconnected from anyone else on my floor.

Freshers was great fun, meeting and getting to know loads of new people was a unique experience and one that won’t happen in the same way again! Introductory talks helped settle us in and going out every night was a good laugh.
