Finally your parents will leave and you'll pretend to be super excited but inside you die a little!


Whenever you hear voices outside your room you'll run out to make friends, but obvs pretend you were on your way to the kitchen! 


You'll collect more leaflets and flyers in Freshers week than the amount of lecture notes you'll write in three years!


You'll become BFF's with someone on a night out and never see them again!


You'll add everyone you meet in the first week on Facebook and then spend the next 3 years wondering who the random people on your timeline are! 


By the end of the week you'll give up on normal plates and eat out of anything that creates less washing up!
