Tip #5: Step Out of Your Comfort Zone
The most IMPORTANT tip we can give you is this one. O-Week kick-starts and sets the tone for your entire university career!
Everyone is in the same position you are; away from home, new surroundings, not knowing many people (or any) and nervous for what’s to come. Embrace it! This is the start of the rest of your lives, kids.
We’re excited; are you excited?
