Example text

If you don’t drink at all, don’t worry about fitting in. You might want to have a sentence lined up about why you don’t drink, since the question might crop up – but make it into a joke if it’s not something you want to talk about. Feeling sad TIP Being a fresher means that you’ll probably have some emotional baggage as well as suitcases full of kettles and cutlery. Anxiety about meeting people and the university social life is not unusual. Like the majority of freshers, in the sixth form years at school my friendship group was well established, and on my gap year I spent most weekends with the same group of friends – so when I started uni I hadn’t been meeting new people en masse since the start of secondary school – when we had bonded over issues like how high we could roll up our uniform skirts.

For example, after my three years as a student I now find it nearly impossible to go out for a meal at a restaurant without a buy-one-get-onefree offer. ’ Sam, 20, London Every time I had a lunch or dinner out, I looked online first to find restaurants running vouchers, print one off, and enjoy my meal for half-price. There are downsides: I’ve eaten more portions of Wagamama’s chicken ramen than anyone should do, but it meant a hot meal, it was next door to the library, and after splitting the bill with a friend the whole thing cost £3!

So if you only have £20 in your bank account and go and buy a Topshop coat for £80, you’ll be £60 overdrawn. If you have an account without an overdraft facility, the bank will charge you money for ‘borrowing’ that £60 from them. But if you do (and many student accounts will let you have overdrafts of £1,000ϩ, with the overdraft amount usually growing every year that you’re at uni), then you won’t have to pay a penny for borrowing that cash. But it’s only a ‘free’ overdraft if you pay back the money before the time limit comes in.
