University can make the greatest years of your life… if you do it right, that is.

 

Many first year students make mistakes, and that’s okay. I’ve compiled a list of dos and don’ts, some from personal experience, to help make the transition into uni life as easy as possible.

 

DO…

Enjoy your freshers week: drink, meet new friends and have the best time!

DON’T…

Spend all of your student loan on freshers nights out and have to live on instant noodles until Christmas.

 

DO…

Host pre-drinks at your flat with cheap alcohol to save money.

DON’T…

Drink too much at pre-drinks and end up getting turned away from Five Bar for being too drunk.

 

DO…

Go to the library to be productive and research for your assignments.

DON’T…

Say you’ll skip the library today and revise in your room instead, when you know full well you’ll just end up watching Netflix.

 

DO…

Plan your food shopping ahead of time so you know what you actually need to get.

DON’T…

Forget to make a list and end up impulse buying your whole week’s shopping.

 

and lastly…

 

DO…

Have an amazing first year at the University of Huddersfield!
