First week done

So, I survived my first “proper” week at Uni. In this week, I had 2 lectures, a seminar and a workshop titled “getting started at university”.
The lectures were introductory ones, detailing what our lecturers expected from us, what we could expect from them, talks about assessments and exams. All the normal stuff you need to start you off in the right way.
We were given a quiz in the seminar to determine what (if anything) we knew about crime. I haven’t added up my score but I did quite well. We also chose the books we wanted to review for our first assessment which is due on 17th October so I sense I will be busy until then! I’m weird in that I am looking forward to getting the first piece of work in but also hoping my brain doesn’t explode!
There isn’t much I can say about the workshop, the guy taking it started by telling us what the symbol of Kent means, not the university but the county!

It got more eccentric from there but the handouts were useful.
In summary (ooh student speak there lol) I had a great week and am looking forward to next week and getting more involved in the lectures.

Timetables and buses

Got my lecture timetable today, I have 2 a week and have still to find out yet about seminars and tutorials.
I am still ridiculously excited about my new future, especially now I can see what I will be doing every week of this academic year.

As I now know which days I need to be in on, I decided to look into bus passes. My local bus company offer a few for students but the savings aren’t that great so I called them to check and got told that not all passes save you money! I always thought that was the point of a bus pass but maybe I’m just weird lol

I think I have decided which pass to aim for and might also start properly investigating the Medway area by bus, something I haven’t yet got round to.
