Students are sharing their hilarious thoughts from university Freshers’ Week
Some universities across the UK held their orientation for new students this week – here are the funniest tweets.
Universities around the UK have started throwing their Freshers’ Week celebrations for new students in the class of 2021.
Freshers’ Week is a week of events, activities and taster sessions to help new students (freshers) to meet new people, join societies, and explore campus… however in many cases students use the week as an opportunity to drink excessively.
Here are the top 11 tweets from people who have just started their university journey.

10. This person fully took advantage of the free stuff.
It’s Freshers Week. Your bag is full of free pens and food sachets as you cling to your new flat mates who you hardly know. Domino’s is £1. You’ve sorted free Uber trips for the week as no one else had it before and you sent them your code. Life is good.— ab (@abigailgeorgia_) September 22, 2018
