It was a familiar and alien experience for me. I’d had a few years out and arrived at NTU as a 23 year-old, living in halls with lots of 18 and 19 year-olds. I embraced the club nights (familiar) and enjoyed the late nights and mid-week lie-ins (alien). But I also took part in the non-drinking activities and went ice skating with people from halls on one evening. I enjoyed the week a great deal but felt odd, too, trying to make friends in what was sometimes an intense environment.
