A Sneak Peek Into University Life

They say university is the best time of your life and that your years after graduating are filled with doom and gloom as you try to land a proper job, work your way up the career ladder, get your own place and eventually settle down. In other words, life post-university is all about being a responsible adult and taking things more seriously. Make the most of it while you can because it’ll be over before you know it. Here are the best things about university you desperately miss and sneak peek into, wish you could experience all over again…

Lie-ins

Getting up for 9am lectures a couple of times a week may seem like the hardest thing to do, but just wait until you can only lie-in at weekends. At uni you can sleep until whenever you want and no-one will judge.

Being spontaneous

One of the best things about uni is that you have the freedom to be spontaneous. Fancy a random night out on the spur of the moment? Or how about a late-night movie session? Once uni’s over and you settle down into work, spontaneity is something most people sadly wave goodbye to.

Fancy dress

Who doesn’t love a good fancy dress night? Students love dressing up for any reason whatsoever, though after uni fancy dress gradually becomes less of a socially acceptable thing to do, unless it’s for stag and hen dos.

Endless societies

Almost every student signs up to far too many societies and ends up forgetting most of them exist. Once you’ve left uni you’ll surely miss being able to join so many societies and do all sorts of things on the side, whether it’s debating, taking part in sports, volunteering, watching films, arts and crafts, learning a new language, going on walks or even knitting.

Learning

Learning complicated and often boring things for your degree might seem like a drag, especially when you find yourself inundated with essays you can’t get your head around. When you’re in full-time work and you look back, you’ll realise uni work wasn’t really that bad at all and you might even prefer uni work to your actual job. Making new friends

At uni it’s so easy to make friends because everyone’s in the same boat as you and there are loads of people and there are loads of ways to meet people, whether it’s in halls, classes, societies, nights out…later on in life, making new friends won’t be anywhere as easy.

Relaxed dress codes

At uni you can whatever you want and are free to express yourself, whereas later on in life, you’ll probably have to stick to your workplace’s stricter dress codes.

Student discounts

Who doesn’t love discounts?

Time off

Considering how expensive uni is, it’s crazy to think of how much time you get off. Make the most of it while you can.

Having friends there all the time

Make the most of having friends around you because it won’t always be like that. Living away from home but still having your family to rely in just in case of emergencies

Those student loans can run out pretty quickly…

Being able to go out whenever you want

Who knew going out on weekdays could be so great? Even if you’ve got a lecture the next day, there’s nothing stopping you going out the night before. Your body being able to tolerate huge amounts of alcohol

After uni, your tolerance somehow goes way down and you find you can’t drink as much as you used to. Plus, hangovers are inevitable no matter how little you drink on a night out.
