Last year I started university and was assigned Weston Hall to live in. The reviews said it was anti-social and boring so I tried to change my accommodation. I was distraught. In October, I nominated myself to be the women's officer on the Weston Hall RA committee. We created many memorable events for the hall and I met some of my closest friends at uni from being on the team. If you're unsure about whether to go for it, I'd honestly say just do it. You don't lose anything and it's hardly a big commitment! There's lots of roles available, so talk to your friends and just go for it!
