Moving into the second year of my University degree means helping out the first years to settle in smoothly. This week I’ve attended a lunch and a welcome party and got to know some of the first year students.
I really enjoy meeting new people and I hate that physics students are stereotyped as shy, unsociable introverts. I am the complete opposite, I’m definitely not shy, I love to mingle and am very out going.
I literally went up to a group of the new students and started chatting.
I feel really helpful when I can answer questions and queries and know what I’m taking about. I got a few lads who I’m getting on with quite well. There are so many more students this year then there were last year in my group.
Tomorrow, we’re all meeting at the local Wetherspoon’s for a late lunch and a few drinks to continue the friendly mingle. I am really looking forward to it.
