Our Beautiful Snowy Campus!!!

Hey guys, hope you’re well. And also, I hope you’re enjoying the beautiful weather if you were blessed like us and our campus were… It’s snowed at Edge Hill!!! It snowed last year when I was in my first year, but it never really stuck that much, so I got to finally see the campus in all its snowy glory!

The campus has always been one of the best parts about being an Edge Hill student. I’ve always loved it, it’s honestly stunning. It’s also really great to explore and walk around if you’re feeling stressed and you want a break from the stress, or if you just want a moment to breathe and think. Whenever I couldn’t sleep last year, I used to walk around the campus to calm my mind down. There’s also campus security 24/7, so it’s super safe to do this! At the end of last year, the campus was announced as the safest campus in the North West for the sixth year running!

So, I collected some pictures off Instagram from this fantastically snowy day to show you just how wonderful the campus looks!

For all current students on campus reading this and all prospective students, stay safe and be careful. Wrap up warm and wear decent shoes! This kind of weather and beauty is no fun when you’re inside injured!

Campus Life – Night 🌌

Life on campus during the night might start out a little daunting, living in a new place and in a new room can always be scary. But from my experience, Edge Hill campus is a very safe place to be. Also, it’s absolutely beautiful.

I’ve taken some photographs that I’m pretty fond of at night on campus. Around this time last year I took some snowy pictures of campus early one morning when it had just settled.

Yesterday, after spending the evening with a friend who lives on-campus, I went around the university again, this time with a DSLR camera instead of my phone. Excuse the blurry nature of some of the photos (although I think it does look nice with the bright blurry lights), as I’m not quite used to night photography and still don’t know the ins and outs of my camera.

We all know how early it gets dark in winter (despite it sneaking up and surprising us every year), and with the laundrette, McColls, library, and other facilities being open late, that means traversing through the cold, dark of night. Fortunately, Edge Hill University has many lamps to light your way through the night time adventures you may have. Whether it’s a late study session in the library, or a night out in the Quad, you’ll be able to find your way across campus with no trouble. Just remember where the tightrope walker sculpture is, I’ve forgotten about it far too many times and had a little jump when seeing it from the corner of my eye!

Also, if you haven’t seen these posts, they might be of use around this time of year, with final UCAS decisions and applicant days approaching. Although not relating the the first year of your studies in biological sciences, these entires are on my second year modules within the biology department:
