The fresher’s fair takes place every year at the University of Leicester and it is the best way to see all of what your new life at university can offer. It’s normally put on over the first two days of term and it is definitely not one to miss.
The fair has representatives from all of the societies and sports clubs all day, ready to answer any questions that you may have (and of course to persuade you to join their society). It’s worth going and wandering around it, giving your name to anything that interests you, you don’t have to make any commitment on the first day after all. I know on my first day that I was surprised by the sheer amount of clubs and societies on offer, there is one for pretty much everything you could want to do. Plus if it’s not there then you can start it up yourself with the help of the students union.
I cannot recommend enough that you join at least one sports club or society. They are an integral part of the university experience and a great way to meet people with similar interests. If you have no idea what you want to do, then just go to the fair and wonder around, you are bound to find something you have an interest in.
