Free Time and Student Life

The workload is heavy, but there’s also a lot of time to make friends and to have fun while at university. Here are fun things to get up to…


As an avid Harry Potter fan I have joined the Harry Potter society. I haven’t been able to attend every event, but they have hosted quizzes, wizard duels, potion lessons (or cocktail mixing, as it’s more commonly known), film screenings, and before the Christmas break they hosted a Yule Ball that ended with drinks in the SU bar.

Night LifeĀ 

I really enjoy nights out and, although money is tight, as a student I still try to go out at least once a week. One of my favourite parts of any night out is ‘pre-drinks’.

One of the most fun ways to spend your free time is by stepping out of your comfort zone and into the unknown. A couple of months ago I was heading home from uni looking forward to dinner and a film in bed when I got a call from a friend asking if I wanted to come with her to an art show….

Uni can be whatever you make it, and if you’re willing to try new things you’re sure to have a great time.

Oh, and the pictures came back from the ball that I blogged about last week and I feel the need to share everywhere the evidence that I can act civilised…
