Wednesday 13 August 2008
- Don’t feel you have to go out partying every single night of the week
- Keep your door open: nights in your room with friends can be fun and cheap
- Try to spend at least some time getting yourself organised for when term starts
- Take care of your health: eat and sleep as regularly as possible, and join a sports society or the gym
- Don’t jump into intense friendships – you could spend more time trying to lose friends than meeting people
- When you go out at night, take a set amount of money with you – and stick to it
- Don’t try to win friends with money – are those the kind of people you want to hang out with?
- Think about what you’re spending: do you need to join every society? Do you need a TV?
- Find the cheapest places to eat and drink
- Don’t lose sleep over money – be sensible, but don’t hold back. University’s not always this eventful
