Student union put on 1 event (festival), the rest was externally organised in town. Good to meet new people but wouldn't class it as any better than a usual night out.

Great moving experience, made us feel welcome by giving us presents and organise different events, like a welcoming party. The festival on the second day was amazing, with the kind of music that I like. The pier party was awesome as I was actually expecting to be honest. Overall, a great week, with unforgetable moments. A week when I made most of my new friends.

I was put in a house mansged by the uni off-campus, so there was very little help or guidance available after collecting keys. We were meant to be visited by housing reps, but no one ever got in contact past an initial generic "welcome" email. Apparently there were activities running on campus from the night that we moved in, but we weren't informed. This all made meeting people during freshers very difficult as most people had already formed groups within their accommodation.

Was a fun way to get to know more people and learn what the nicer places to go within the uni were. The society that I joined was specifically friendly and I met most of my friends there, would recommend

It was great, I am third year and living off campus so was expecting less of a crazy freshers. But my gf had moved from the US to Sussex for the semester, two of my best friends had come down from the unis (a yearly ritual) and I didn't have all the stresses of being new and making new friends. If I had tip for a fresher it would be to be yourself because people will see through you otherwise and embrace the time because these will be some amazing years ahead of you, starting now

Moving in was much more fun and exciting than it was scary. You begin chatting to the people around you instantly and within an hour or to you will be on your way to the main freshers event. There you'll meet more students and likely to find friends that you'll stick with throughout the year. The uni was helpful in helping out freshers.

It was good there was a lot of choices to choose from such as night club to a variety of food. It’s hard for those who commute from home to university as it’s difficult to indulge the fun activities to provide for those who live far

There are a few amazing events (e.g. pier party), and the events team in the students' union are amazing. However, the university just doesn't put enough effort in, and our freshers is much smaller compared to other universities. There is also (as ever) too much of a pressure to get outrageously drunk. Realistic alternatives, that students will actually want to attend, would be nice.

The overall set up was nice and coherent and offered a wide range of stalls. Each stall discussed societies and socials to participate in university and answered questions about General uni life.

Average, tailored toward mainstream clubbing and less so more unique and different events would be good to have a wider range

Everyone was really friendly and welcoming and the pier party was definitely te best part! (I only wish we had gone to the pier a little earlier to fully enjoy the rides). Other freshers in my block were also so nice and we now know people in every flat in our block

The move in experience was amazing. Sussex prepared a week packed with so many different kinds of activities ranging from tea parties and long walks to bar crawls in town and jungle parties with performances from the likes of big narstie. They really encourage you to go discover yourself and the people you’re living with.
