As I enjoy my last few weeks at home before going back to uni for my second year the only memories that seem to spring to mind is that everyone likes the same shit music, to dance at shit clubs, go to pub crawls in unoriginal fancy dress and generally just act like they can't think for themselves. Of course there are exceptions....on my course there are some great people, and i'm sure there are many more but as a whole the general campus life/uni experience was pretty trite. Maybe it's just my uni? or maybe me being negative? but after being home for the summer I realize how much more fun life is being around London with my mates back home who actually enjoy going to gigs.

We had S Club 3 at our Summer ball.

It was made up for by Feeder headlining though.

I graduated in May, so I'm not going back.


If I was I would probably be excited. I enjoyed my time there.

Where I live, we've already started. I can honestly say I'm glad to be back. I was bored as hell the last few days.

I thought I'd ask here rather than making a new thread:
What do you folks do during your free time (if you have any) at uni?
Are you members of many clubs and societies? Are you in a sports team? Are you in a band? Do you go clubbing or just get drunk?

...I like you.


But I am looking forward to going back anyway. That might just be because all my friends are starting to leave for uni.

Second year will be more fun, assuming you're living with housemates you've picked.

you sound bitter about the whole thing.
organized pub crawls is terrible, yeah, but apart from that it can be fun.
clubs generally don't play music that everyone likes. people just go there to dance and have fun...
dancing can be fun.
go somewhere other than the student union.
fancy dress is a chance to be creative or to look different or whatever.
people are nice.
it depends where you're living as well though. somewhere like london is great because it's diverse and people are generally not so spoilt and stupid.
there are always gonna be a ton of people, just find a niche or, if you can't (like me), just be friendly with people.

I start next Tuesday, and I've been absolutely dying from boredom. The Summer is absolutely one of my least times in the year.

I very much enjoy being at school as well, so I'm dying to start College this upcoming week, I'm hoping it's an amazing experience.

Sounds like the uni I went to. I didnt go out much on organized pub crawls or to the student union. I had better things to do.

I graduated in July but I am looking forward to going back and doing my masters... In 2011.

Starting in a few weeks, very excited. The accommodation's services have put me in the last batch of people to get allocated though, so I'm worried I'll get stuck in a dingy flat in one of the far-off halls.

I didn't get a place in halls at all, we had to find a private house in our first year.

I would say that frustrated is the word.

I guess to me all that seems so predictable and pointless. I love drinking, don't get me wrong but I like to do things that actually leave me with good memories - be it going to a wicked gig, going on a random little adventure or just have a good old house party...I don't mind. It's just everything about the campusy social side of Uni is so samey and regimented (and forgetable). It seems in the day people attend various sport clubs and in the evening follow the same pattern of pub golf/dressing as bloody smurfs and then finnish at a shit club/student union night.

Maybe it takes time...or maybe the campus uni thing isn't for me. I did a year in London uni which was great but dropped out because I hated the course. Now I'm on a good course but the social side of this campus uni is pretty dire.

Moving in a week on Saturday and can't wait (access to a proper library is going to save me a small fortune on books too).

How can I not be excited when the big dawg, Tim Westwood, has been confirmed for our freshers week?

Funnily enough I was just sorting out some uni stuff and looking at my course just now!

WOO YORK!

But yeah I guess I'm looking forward to it, but also HATE students.
I hate people who get arsey and think they know things about politics, I hate people who shout when drunk, and i HATE people going out in fancy dress. Students.
But also I do look forward to having fun, I've just never liked people who assume everyone's type of fun is their type and try and force it on them. Clubs and pubs are lovely, but not everyone thinks lads wearing dresses is hilarious.

I know what you mean. I don't really enjoy pubs, clubs, gigs or drinking, and people often just label me as 'boring' because of it.

I'm hoping there'll be some people who are just happy to go out and do things for an evening without having to end up in a club somewhere, otherwise I'm screwed socially.

Yep, its better than hanging around at home. Not fussed about the whole "You're a student, thereofe you must get drunk all the time" vibe, saying that I enjoy a night out. Also uni means rugby season and I get to join the good gym again.

Fun times.

We got N-Dubz [who didn't show], N-Trance [some ancient dance group who had like one popular song], and fucking Bodger and Badger.. no shit. This was before our SU went into administration.


I'm sort of looking forward to going back cause it was a laugh for the most part, even though the course was a bit shit since the first year was sort of a general year which allowed for people to switch between the more specialised courses for the second year onwards.

But at the same time I've enjoyed the time off, and when its been so long.. You kind of can't be arsed to go back.
The plan was to drink until the pain over.
But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?

Agreed on clubs though. They can be nice fun every now and then but they get a bit much.

Look around at different societies at freshers fair. (Some) societies tend to have a lot of things other than drinking to do. Others don't.

UEA is wonderful, so yes I am looking forward to it.
Move into my new house this sunday But that also means no internet for a while.

As for bands playing at our SU, we've had a lot of bands and artists.
Last year we had Joe Bonamassa, N-Dubz, Tinchy Stryder, Billy Talent, Lady Gaga, Reel Big Fish and Trivium to name a very few ( the ones I can name off the top of my head).
http://www.ueastudent.com/events If anyone wants to see what we have this year, includes Jools Holland and Ellie Goulding.
Having an amazing students union is awesome, iirc ours is one of the only profitable ones in the country. They sure know how to put on a club night too. And fancy dress tuesdays are always a great laugh.

I'm going to have to work so hard this year, but it will still be worth it just being there with my friends in our massive house (11 bedrooms)

Most of my friends at Uni are stoners. If there's alcohol involved, it'll usually be outside of a pub scenario and cannabis will be around somewhere. I did go out about twice a week drinking before Christmas last year but that changed as the people I hung out with changed. Considering I only have individual friends instead of being in a social circle down in my home county and freshers week is coming up, people are going to be drinking down pubs again regularly in freshers week, so I'm looking forward to it. I should also find some friends who are more into pubs. It's pricey, but it's a load of fun.

And I've never go into clubs. Bloody boring places.

Clubs are loathsome places. If hell is tailored to individual people, I'll be in a club playing shitty pop music for eternity.

I am both looking forward and kind of dreading going back to uni. Although it's fun, there's too much work .

I am in accordance with Craigo in that pubs are better than clubs (obviously, this does not include the atrocity that is Spoons). Also, I wouldn't necessarily say that they're more expensive, given the level of intoxication required for me to even consider going to a club; although once achieved does evoke an inexplicable and unfortunate desire to do so.

I'm already back in University. The novelty wears off quick, but my classes seem interesting and I'm hoping to get a directed research opportunity.

Overall a positive thing.

Get my independence back, have money again, have gym access, get to play footy every week, see all my friends again (downside of not living where you go to uni, don't see best friends over holidays) and I'm actually looking forwards to classes and having work to do.
