    You go to lectures, freshers week is the same as any other week with more drinking

    Freshers Ball is a misnomer - its not really a ball - no blacktie, no formality. Its just like a regular college gig, just a little bigger.

    Freshers week - lectures are ongoing but during the week the various societies and clubs will have stalls setup to let you ask questions and sign up to any of them that take your fancy. In the afternoon/evenings, theres normally stuff organised in the bars around campus, for your boozing pleasure.

    So, go to your lectures (if you like), sign up to a few clubs/socs, get drunk, arrive in with hangover, rinse and repeat for the next 5 days.
