Freshers in derby is average, events put on by both the university and independent sites. However trouble is lots of events clashed with same dates.

Derby uni freshers in my opinion it’s ok however not amazing. Mainly because pretty much I think it’s the same event every night. I always seem to find eventhough people advertised and hyped up differently. I’m not a drinker but I still go out to enjoy myself because I feel when you go to a club it isn’t about the drinking. I think it’s about (People your with,Where you are ,the music playing and your safety). I just think that the university’s freshers needs a bit more variety for example a bowling night,mini golf night ,cinema night or a restaurant night etc. However every year I do get excited for freshers which is mainly because of (meeting new people,Catching up with people I haven’t seen in months and the main one no lectures the first week lol ). I also enjoy the freshers atmosphere even though it can be a bit annoying at times. However if I could rate my university’s freshers out of 10 I would say 6/10

Moving in day was hectic but fun, turner reps were helpful and friendly and helped to carry your stuff up to your room! Freshers fortnight was fab, lots of things on and it was a laugh, although I think some events were a bit samey and just like a normal club nights. Also I think more live music acts that are more current should be employed for some events! During freshers week I would recommend having a door stop to prop your door open most of the time, this will make you seem approachable and people will come to speak to you!

Freshers week was exhilarating to say the least! Moving in was easy, and my fellow flatmates were very welcoming to each other. The SU events were great fun too, allowing me to meet other students aside from my course.

Move in experience was good, I moved in a few days late but everyone was very helpful. Some of the nighttime events were good but the student union wristband is a rip off

Freshers is good, it's a fortnight long with a variety of things, although in the 2nd week people tend to get a bit bored as it's not as good as the first week. Headline acts at the uni itself are the same as prior years, and there just needs to be more. Smaller unis get bigger acts. I feel cutting down freshers fortnight to probably around 10 days instead would be better

The first few days I did not talk to anyone and I felt really awkward as I came a day after and the rest of the flat have already been out. However, we had a fire drill and we were all sent to the main common room and we all just got along pretty quick, a day goes by of getting to know each other and we go out for my first night out, it was my first time going to the club also. The best thing I realised from going to clubs is that the people we were with would always be safe and have signs of when something is happening, we’re really close and care in that way too. Freshers week was the best times to four as it was major student nights and it was packed and really cheap really nice to get to know a lot of people. Compared to after freshers the clubs were never the same, they never had that proper clubbing vibe, unless I didn’t get drunk enough. Overall, freshers week was amazing and I was so lucky to be apart of it as I won’t think I’ll experience that type of week ever again, the memories, the people I’ve met, it’s just really overwhelming you know.
