Fresher's Week was a good experience that reinforced my belief that I had chosen the right university. Fresher's Fair was excellent. It was extremely easy to sign up to clubs and societies and to try things out. There was also a number of excellent induction events within my department (criminology).

Freshers week had some good events on, and it was well marketed which made it easy to know which events you wanted to go to and which you didn’t. Freshers fair also gave you some good discounts on things like dominos pizza and gym memberships.

Freshers allowed us to improve our relationships with our flatmates and make new friends before our course started. It improved the first few weeks at uni when you are to miss home most.

The move in experience was smooth and easy. It was easy to get settled in. The Freshers fair have you so much choice and it was good that it was over 2 days so you got a chance to check out everything

Freshers week was one of the most eventful and rememerable events produced by the university of Leicester. I was happy with my move in and luckily I got on with my flat mates very very well. The freshers fair was very helpful and made me decide to join societies like streetdance and basketball. I feel the inductions could be more suited to the students needs about the university, for example have more information about where all the different rooms are on campus. The freshers week wristband event was the most rememberable event and definitely the highlight of freshers week. Overall, freshers week was a very good experience.

My move in experience was very pleasant, this was because of a combination of excitement and the fact that I was moving into a luxury student accommodation - it was exciting figuring out were to put what and making every thing look nice as well as looking forward to getting to know my flat mates. The events were organised very well, queues were limited giving the circumstance of how many people were going, they were also super fun and good vibes. I’m quite a social person so meeting new people was not a problem, everyone was so friendly that even for introverts, meeting new people wouldn’t be a problem. My tip would be just put yourself out there, have lots of fun, you only do uni once so make the most of it and indulge yourself in all the activities.

Freshers was one of the best weeks ever. When you move in there’s a cute freshers pack with info about the events and a few essentials such as energy drinks and marmite the actual events are fun and there’s a good variety: from BBQs, fairs, to your traditional party/club night. Everyone is super friendly as you’re all in the same boat and it’s genuine good vibes

Fresher's fortnight tested my party stamina with all the events, but it was the best way to connect with my flatmates and start meeting people from different courses.

Friend of and approachable staff, make the move and all events which surround the freshers move up, a more relaxing experience. A big tip would be to actually try during first year!lol Many firms look at your initial grades, when you apply for schemes and thus having a decent set of grades behind you, woo reply help when setting you out from the crowd!

The events at Leicester’s freshers went on for 2 weeks straight and they were insane! I met my mates I have now there and I wouldn’t change it! The events are different everyday so it doesn’t get boring and it was fun dressing up for some of them! Fancy dress bar crawls were definitely the best.

Moving to uni wasn’t a big change for me, I was used to moving around, moving schools and meeting new people. But I was surprised when on my first night after moving in and going out with my block to the first uni rave. I ended up back in my bed at 2am crying. I don’t even remember why, but I cried myself to sleep. The rest of freshers was fun, refreshing. Loads of free goodies, fun and events and everyone was extremely friendly.

I personally thought uol could of done better with fresher events. There was no variety, it seemed everything was chart music. There was hardly any events, and if so they were just repeats.

Not great! Bought a wristband for sixty pounds, just to find out that welcome party was the only decent event out of all fourteen nights. I think they could do a lot better with new people and new planners in the committee and changing their events and themes.

My move in was adequate, although I believe the university would benefit from having more events closer to student accommodation. It seems at times the uni care more about profit than the students enjoyment.
