Fresh Tips for Freshers

Just some of the things that tend to be left out of a University Prospectus…

CHEEKY FLATS ARE THE ANSWER

Girls, heads up! There is no point packing heels for your night out in Canterbury. The streets are cobbled. Your heels will get caught. You will trip and make a complete fool of yourself.

LEAVE. THE. POLE. ALONE.

Chemistry’s pole might be calling but guys, leave it. You will have bruises in the morning. But by all means, get involved with Pole Fitness- they’ll teach you how to do it right. Look out for Kent Pole Fitness or CCCU Pole Fitness at Freshers Fair.

BULK BUY IT RIGHT

When heading to the wholesalers, be selective. This means that whilst pasta, toilet roll and tea bags should be picked up- do NOT bother with the cup of soup! and forget those 5kg of marshmellows. You’ll never get through all that.

GO OUT. BUT YOU REALLY DON’T HAVE TO GO OUT EVERY NIGHT.

Push yourself outside of your comfort zone by being involved. But have a night off too- get to know your housemates over a quiet evening. Your body will thank you for it later.

YOU WILL HAVE SOME DISGUSTING HOUSEMATES (quite likely)

You might have come from quite a sheltered home, one where people don’t leave mash potato on the side for 3 days. Or a trail of pizza and takeaway receipts up the stairs. Be prepared for this to change.
If you can cope with confrontation, then one quick fix is to pile up all of your grosse housemates stuff outside of their bedroom door. Good luck

FIRST TIME COOK

You will be so proud of your first home cooked uni meal. Even if it is a fry up. GO YOU!
There are two extremes when it comes to your experimental cooking attempts- not cooking something for long enough and then forgetting the oven entirely.
When inebriated, time might feel like its flying by- which it did for one unlucky student, until the next two weeks of food poisoning really didn’t.

These are just a few nuggets of wisdom from previous students of Canterbury, we wish you the best of luck.

CATCH US THIS FRESHERS FAIR! We will be with you on Wednesday at the Lounge from 10-4 for CCCU, and once again for UKC- 10-4, on Thursday and Friday in the Plaza.
