My recent posts have been about issues that I've encountered while starting university, but on a more positive note, Facebook has undoubtedly helped me most on my way. My university is incredibly well organised in this respect, with a Facebook group for all freshers and a separate group for each of the halls of residence.
The freshers group lists the timetable of events for freshers week and while we also get sent all this information on paper, having it on Facebook makes it impossible to lose. Another huge advantage is that if I have any queries or problems, I can just message members of the Student Union and my Hall Committee or post on the discussion board. I have also made contact with other people in my Hall and on my course. Another great advantage about university information being available online is that I can use a screen reader if there is a large amount of text that needs to be read.
