Clubbers of the Week: Feeling fun in Week One

If you’re my parents, stop scrolling NOW


And we’re back for Fresher’s Week, the first week of the new academic year and the only week where we don’t feel guilty about partying every night as there are no assigned essays, quizzes or questions to answer – wait until Week Five for that. From the fresh-faced first years, to the slightly ragged fourth years with their dissertations and job applications imminently waiting, everyone has stumbled down to Cowgate at least once or twice to let off some steam, and here’s the rundown of it.
