These 13 cringey fresher TikToks will get you ready for the carnage

It’s a well known fact that glitter and face paint are Freshers’ Week essentials


Freshers’ Week is fast approaching, and in anticipation of that splurge of ungodliness, many incoming first years have been posting TikToks to share their excitement for what will, contrary to popular belief, not be the best week of their lives.

Some of these first years are talking about the mental piss-ups they’re going to have, others are plotting group chat tactics, while the very unfortunate among them have paid an arm and a leg for a Freshers’ Week wristband. It’s. Just. Not. Worth. It.

Here are 13 cringey TikToks posted by freshers in the run-up to the start of uni, that are bound to get you excited about the carnage:

1. This silly fresh is going to be bringing glitter and face paint to the party
