We asked Warwick students about their craziest Freshers’ stories

There were stories of faeces and fire


First year is a notoriously awkward and difficult time for many people, and when people are awkward they get drunk, and when they get drunk, strange things must happen.

As implacable a force as gravity, the immense incompetence, ignorance and downright stupidity of a drunken student population cannot be stopped. From fire to faeces, Warwick students are a strange bunch without question, and so we went onto the piazza to ask them about their fresher horror stories and craziest Warwick adventures.
