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.
