When I first got to university the main focus was on drinking. All the activities for fresher’s week were about drinking and for me, who didn’t drink, that was very frightening. I felt I wouldn’t belong and I didn’t have a way of fitting in without drinking.
Our Fixers project is to let other students who want to stay sober during their studies know that they are not alone, and show them they can still enjoy a rich and active social life at university.
I think it’s really good to spread this message as someone who was afraid of university and this feeling of not fitting in I really want to make sure everyone knows they can do something like this and it can be great.
