First year has been absolutely great; I’ve been very lucky with my flatmates and the friends I’ve made, the course has been interesting and enjoyable, and I’ve fallen in love with Bristol. I will miss it over the summer but I am off to the big ol’ US of A for my second summer working at a summer camp in Connecticut. My advice for those starting university would be not to stress, it will work out just fine! You will make good friends, and you will have an amazing time and you will love your new independence. Take advantage of what the university, and Bristol as a city, has to offer and you’ll love it!
