UWE Students Say

We asked UWE Bristol students what they think about alcohol, here are the results of the survey with opinions from some familiar faces.

FRESHERS: DO IT RIGHT

The whole Welcome period in September can be overwhelming. As well as information over-load surrounding university life; there can be a lot of pressure to go and party hard with all your new-found friends. We want you to know that drinking is not as integral to student life as you might think – it is ok to slow down and take it easy.

Our Freshers’ Events span almost three weeks – whilst you should make the most of what’s on offer, that doesn’t mean drinking solidly. Freshers’ events are about getting to know each other and we have loads of events that are designed to help you do that.

If you do go out we want you to have a fun and safe night, so our Late Night Do It Right team will be at some of the Freshers’ events giving out water, snacks and condoms to those who need them. You can even charge your phone to get yourself home safe.

‘When I came to university, I assumed I had to drink to become friends with those who did but I soon realised that it didn’t matter and I could still have meaningful conversations and real friendships’
