Starting Your First Year Of Uni? Here's The Lowdown Of What To Expect

Transitioning from high school to university is something that we all look forward. We’ve all had expectations of what university was going to be like; endless parties, going to class whenever you felt like attending, student discounts... the list is never ending.

But let me stop you right there, because university is not the breezy walk in the park you thought it was going to be – soz. It's not all bad though, but it is by no means the life that we've been sold in movies. 

1. Social life

Public transportation is just as nice as having your own car... personal space? No, thanks.

The struggle of picking out an outfit everyday is real! Well at least you tried.

Piece of advice, just be you and try your best. Now, go forth and absorb all the knowledge, you beauty, you.
