Are you heading away to uni for the first time? Not to worry, we’re got you covered here at PULP. Take a look at our top 5 fresher essentials and prepare yourself for the most random, awkward and fun-filled week of your entire life.
Unless you’re some kind of domestic god, it’s quite likely that after 9 nights out in a row, your wardrobe is gonna be looking pretty bare and your paint-splattered, foam-covered clothing from the previous nights are decorating your new (probably beige) carpet… right? Right! Obviously, at this point you’re probably asking yourself ‘why did I miss that beautifully presented laundry induction?’ but there’s no point dwelling on the past. The moral of the story is, invest in a laundry bag now and let your rents take care of the rest during their compulsory ‘first weekend at uni’ visit. Sorted.
When it comes to uni, there’s no better way to make friends than a cheeky round of shots. Oh, on a serious note – if someone shouts ‘down it fresher’ do it, no questions asked! It’s practically uni law.
It’s 3am. You’ve just got back after a mad sesh and there’s only one topic on your mind… food. Food, glorious food. This nifty little gadget allows you to not only pour your favourite sauce in style, it also doubles over as a deadly weapon during those mandatory early-morning food fights. Be prepared, it’s gonna happen. FOOD FIIIIGHT!
Because… what else is going to both decorate your flat AND keep the beers chilled? Absolute no-brainer.
Never underestimate the hoody. This beautifully-designed item of clothing will not only see you through those dreaded all-nighters in the library, it will be your best friend on the mornings after a few too many. A word to the smart – invest wisely, you’re not going to be able to afford another for quite some time.
Have fun, stay safe and drink responsibly...
