It was fun with lots of Nightlime events and lots of new people to meet. Everyone was quite friendly and although I experienced culture shock at first it quickly left when I met my first group of friends. Everyone was really open and friendly and the events were top notch ranging from club nights to movie nights to game nights to dog petting day time events and of course the freshers fair. My advice to everyone will be to be as open and friendly as possible. Hey

The uni has a scheme called Stycs- these are second and third year contacts who are assigned to your flat in freshers week and take you out- they definitely help you to meet more people and help settle you in!

So much fun meeting new people and getting involved with loads of new activities, it was amazing to be able to go to so many events with new housemates and have an incredible time

I was an international student from Japan. I was a bit concerned about Freshers, because I don’t drink loads. In the end, there were plenty of fun activities that didn’t involve going out and getting super drunk, so I was pretty happy

Freshers at york was done really well! We had planned activities for a full 7 days and was never pushed into participating and there was alternatives for people that didn't want to go out (movie nights, game night etc) each house was assigned a groups of STYC's (second third year contact) that came out with you (ours were great just like extra mates on a night out) they pre drank with us but just helped us get our bearings on a night out and made sure we all got home safely. We had a slight issue on the first night as our college moved in before any other so there wasn't much going on, a big bbq was promised but never happened. Other than that I thought york did freshers really well, with something for everyone

York freshers week started off great. STYCs were around to help move us in and made the process really easy. The club nights were very similar and there wasn't much variety but overall it was a great experience.

Move in experience: very smooth, blocks had set times for moving in so never too crowded, and queues to pick up keys were very quick. Second year students volunteered to help carry stuff up to rooms. Events: really good timetable of events with something for everyone both day and night time. Was really good for getting to know flat mates.

Freshers week was by far the best week of my life. Whether it was going out and meeting people every night or football trials, the whole week was fantastic. I loved to integrate into Derwent College and the STYC system really made me feel at home.

Was an excellent week with lots of events and made friends and met lots of people. I hope next years is just as good. Thanks to my university and college for organising such a good week full of day time and evening activities

What a cracking time! Pulled up and was met immediately by two second year students who were super welcoming and who helped carry all my stuff up three floors! I'm still friends with them now, a year and a half later. Little things like that made York feel like home straight away.

My college (as do the others) has a system whereby second and third year students look after the freshers and show them the ropes. This allowed us all to relax and just socialise worry free.

I lived off campus (as a first year) so was a little excluded from the events during freshers week, however after talking to college reps, I was soon involved in all of the great events.

move in was great with STYCs helping us move who were really friendly. There were lots of non drinking events which were fun, not to say that the drinking events weren't fun!!

Smooth move in and events all week, freshers week for me was very fun! There could have been more to do during the day and the non drinking events could have been more publicised but the drinking events were great!

Although it was a daunting week it was helped with the use of STYCs who are second and third year contacts assigned to a particular flat/house to look after Freshers and to make sure everything is organised and everyone feels included. Separating the fresher's nights into different colleges also helped make it easier to know what to do on what night.

Arrived a week before with a bunch of people I knew would arrive early too.. had a week of freshers before the actual freshers and was probably a little too exhausted for the real thing.

Met new people, went out every night, got drunk and lost on many occasions. University of York student nights were an integral part of our fresher's week, alongside activities and nights out organised by respective colleges at the university.
