Pre-Freshers say the darndest things
‘Best’ of the 2014 Offer Holders Group
Remember that time you actually liked science? When you looked forward to studying engineering? When you had hopes, dreams, and living in London struck you as exciting as opposed to sounding really, really expensive?
Those days of innocence, those days of grace; the summer before going to uni was truly wonderful. You’d look forward to coming to uni and making new friends instead of counting down the months/weeks/days/hours until exams/ finally getting out of this godforsaken place. And you’d be so agonisingly keen for it all. Eugh.
So we’ve been on the lookout for these pre-Freshers’ follies and addressed these and their questions about life and love, but primarily uni. They are nothing we’ve not all done before but by God they can be cringe-worthy…

They carry promise and a degree of annoyance like all freshers before them.We saw people talking about wanting to go into finance, agonising chatter about joining clubs and societies, and meeting up with future coursemates (yep that always ends well) as one expects and the school to uni transition is hard (cooking your own food, washing up, and dealing with club promoters) and shapes/mentally scars us all.
They’ll probably be fine, even if the group itself is rather… mundane.
