Here are some things I wish I would known before going to university. No matter how much you enjoy cooking, you definitely will not need a mortar or a pestle. If you hand in your essays at midday and you have a tutorial or seminar at three, it is not a great idea to start celebrating early. Five hours in the library twice a week is not a lot, even if it sounds like it

Spend more time than anything else in the company of those you live with. they will be your friends for at least a year. The people that did not make the big effort in the first few days and weeks seemed to get less from the overall experience of university.

do not become trapped within your flat. All too often, people in a flat will just hang out with each other and not bother to move in wider circles, and after a few weeks a sort of cabin fever can ensue. You were put in a flat randomly with these other people, you can not be expected to get on and hang out with every single one. Try and make friends with people in other flats earlier on, before people get locked in their comfort zone

Great experience! Uni could be bigger, especially the student union.
