Coming to Edge Hill University was a great option. The campus is the perfect size; my home institution is slightly larger and I do not feel like it is small here. My friend is from a very small school and does not feel overwhelmed.
Make sure to get involved with a society or sport. I cannot tell you how much this has helped me assimilate and make friends. I tried something I had some previous experience with, but was still a world unknown - rock climbing.
If you are religious, don't give up hope finding a spiritual connection. It seems impossible sometimes, but there are people here who do choose to be spiritual/religious. We googled churches.
Don't be afraid to try things on your own. It is okay to venture outside of your comfort zone and do things solo. Some of my more reflective moments were alone, having tea, and writing letters home.
Always keep a blog. It is a great way for you to remember the little moments and for you not to have to explain everything when you get home!
A semester is shorter than you think. Enjoy your time!
