Originally posted by Rocks Uni's far better than I expected... I thought it would take me ages to adapt, find friends, etc. etc. but after the first week it was as if i'd been here for ages.
Two months in, its still one alchol-blurred experience! (do geography if you want time to drink every night!)
Originally posted by Bopperz Geog here i come, the geog students in my flat do 4 day weeks...... I am really starting to hate maths, its just REALLY boring and I seem to have twice as many lectures as everyone else!
Don't even get me started about the buissnes study students, dont think they go to more then 2 lectures a week.
Originally posted by perfect***day Well, I'm not finding uni life lives up to its stereotype of constant drunken haze, partying, and doing no work at all...
But I'm still having fun! The freedom and independence compared with living at home and going to school is great, plus there are some great people here, great pubs and the work is actually really interesting.
So I'm enjoying it in my own way, although I'm not sure it's the typical crazy uni experience.

Well, I *make* them into one day weeks.

Originally posted by Turtle A highly reputable one, dontcha know.
Nah, the workload is slowly creeping up, got a whole stack of essays, so even I've only got a handful of classes each week, I'm still in the library most days at the moment.
Originally posted by lisa simpson's saxophone Uni is pretty crazy. Well at least, it can be, if you want it to be. That's what I'm finding anyway. If you want to go out and get plastered every night, there's always an opportunity to do so, but personally my health and my bank account can't quite take the strain so I keep it to a few nights a week.
I'm surprised at the amount of work I have, though. People kept telling me that first year was a doss but it really doesn't seem that way to me.
Originally posted by emj Am i the only one who isnt enjoyin uni then? I find it really dull. I've only been there two months and already it feels like a chore to wake up in the morning and go in.
Did you expect to be going to bed excited in anticipation of lectures the following day?
