Time has never passed as fast as it has during the three years I have been a student at Newcastle University. The clichéd among us would agree that uni has consisted of many ups and downs. However, my time at uni has taught me a great deal and will be plentifully missed, as demonstrated by the following points…
Some say the friends you make at uni are your friends for life. Although we begin this journey as strangers, three years later we will be graduating with shared memories of dissertation nightmares and unforgettable experiences.
The region that offers so much: coastal beaches, the great outdoors, infamous nightlife, historical and cultural landmarks, shopping and leisure complexes are all within close proximity of campus. It is a privilege to have lived in Newcastle, even for a short while.
The art of adult responsibilities has been learnt.
The art of avoiding responsibilities has also been learnt! As well as frequent napping.
On a more serious note, uni has taught me a lot concerning global issues. I’ve engaged with topics and campaigns such as politics, feminism and mental health stigma. These are important issues that are fundamental to society and student voices are so powerful in helping to make a change.
Harvard Referencing has become instinctual. I will (secretly) miss lectures. Nothing says university like a good ol’ Powerpoint.
So uni is over. Thank you to my friends and my lecturers for being a great support during my degree. Most of all, thank you Newcastle. It’s been a blast!
