Here are 10 Things Older Than This Year’s New students. It’s Guaranteed To Make You Feel Old

Right now, thousands of students across the world have started their first year at university. Now you probably think it was just a couple of years since you were a fresh-faced fresher of 18 starting your studies. That is until you read our list of 10 things that are older than this year’s new students.

After that you’re going to feel very, very old:

1. Harry Potter

Yes, it’s true. This year’s batch of students are younger than J.K. Rowling’s first novel Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. It’s like a whole new generation of people who haven’t lived the world of Harry Potter.

2. Spice World

The epic Spice World, featuring the greatest girl band to have graced our ears, was released way back in 1997. Before our new students were even in nappies. They’ve probably never seen the films, or worse, know who the Spice Girls are…

3. Steps

Imagine being younger than Steps?! What a tragedy (hehe) for the rest of us. Seriously though students, how can you be younger than Steps? We must be ancient.

4. Titanic

You may be young and wrinkle-free, but we LIVED Titanic. Well maybe not the actual event but the film came out in 1997 and we spent months crying over Jack.

5. Hanson – Mmmbop

Do you remember when Mmmbop came out? You probably bought the single. Well guess what… That’s right. This year’s students are younger than Mmmbop.

6. Starship Troopers

It may not have been the least bit serious, but that doesn’t mean that we didn’t love Starship Troopers. And listen up kid students, this is where your precious Barney from How I Met Your Mother got one of his steps towards fame.

7. Teletubbies

What’s creepier than the Teletubbies? The Teletubbies in black and white. Oh and the fact this year’s students are younger than this television show too. We might as well embrace our grey hair and a walking stick now.

8. Maisie Williams

Since Maisie Williams plays Arya Stark in Game of Thrones we kind have had her as like 14-16 years old in our heads. Nop. She’s older than those 1st year students too.

9. Grand Theft Auto

Do you know that video game that everyone goes mad over? Well Grand Theft Auto 1 is another shocking thing to be older than the new students. No wonder it wasn’t 3D back in the day, it’s younger than the rest of us but that’s only a few years younger than ancient…

10. Aqua – Barbie Girl

That’s right, the final nail in the coffin of things older than new students is Barbie Girl by Aqua. It feels like it was only yesterday that this song was released. Not more than 18 years ago.
