Hey all, there are so many things that I could focus on in this post about Edge Hill, so I thought it would be fun and interesting to read an A to Z of things surrounding Edge Hill University!
A- Arts Centre. The Arts Centre is the home of all things performance! Not only is it where the lessons for the Performance degrees are, but you can see all the best and upcoming theatre shows, screenings, films, dance and music here, and for free on the Student Membership!
B- Bar. The SU Bar is a great place for students to grab food or a drink during the day, or go to events or the Venue (Edge Hill’s club!) at night.
C- Creative Edge. This is where the Music and Media degrees mostly take place, and it’s home to so much cool equipment! From music studios to film editing software and cameras, if you’re into your media and music and you’re looking to do one of the courses, this place would be something of a dream!
D- Ducks! One of the best things about the campus are the lovely ducks you’ll find roaming the campus. Last time I checked there were 115 ducks and counting!
E- Events. There are so many events that occur on campus throughout the year, put on by the Student Union and such, like the Edge Hill Drag Race 2018 or the Freshers’ Week events held in the SU Bar.
F- Food. There are so many good places to get food from on campus; from our recently established Subway, to the Hub’s hot food, you can probably satisfy any food based desires you have!
G- Guides. If you want to represent the Uni, and earn some money whilst you’re at it, being a Student Guide is a great way to do this!
H- Hub. The Hub is not only a great place to hang out on campus, but is a great place to get food or a coffee- we have our own Starbucks!
I- Inclusion. There’s so many things for you to get involved with at Edge Hill; societies, sports teams, events, and so much more!
J- Joel Dommett! This year we had the pleasure of having the Arts Centre be one of the venues on Joel’s most recent tour! Just one of the many great events that occur at Edge Hill.
K-Keeping yourself busy. There are always things you can get involved in so you never get bored!
L- Library. The Edge Hill Library is one of the biggest assets of the campus. It has hundreds of books that can help you with your studies and people to help if you have questions or issues doing your work.
M- Money. If you’re having issues budgeting or with any fees you come across whilst at Uni, there is a team of people dedicated to ensuring the students don’t find themselves in a super difficult situation money-wise.
N- News. Keep up to date with what’s happening on and around campus with the many Facebook pages dedicated to ensuring Students know everything they need to whilst at Edge Hill.
O- Open Days. As a student, you can help out with Open Days and even get paid for it! Always helpful if you’re running low on money.
P- Ponds. There are some really lovely features of the Edge Hill campus, including the ponds, which are great to walk around if you want to de-stress or spend some time out of your room.
Q- Quizzes. If you’re a fan of a good old pub quiz, the SU bar host their own on a weekly basis.
R- Rabbits! The rabbits are one of the many types of animals roaming the campus, and it’s super relaxing to just watch the wildlife sometimes.
S- Sport. Edge Hill Sport is a great place to go if you love sport or want to catch up on exercise. They have courts you can hire out and a lovely swimming pool!
T- Teachers. The teachers are always fantastic at helping students out when they need it, and also ensure that they know what they need to to get the best grades they can and the grades they deserve.
U- University. How could I do an A to Z without focusing on what Edge Hill itself is? University will honestly open you up to the world and give you some experiences you’ll never get anywhere else.
V- Variety! There’s always so much happening around campus that there’s something for everyone!
W- Worrying. If you find yourself worrying or in any trouble, the Wellbeing and Counselling teams are there for you if you need them.
X- X-tra Curricular! X is a difficult word to find something for… but you’ll be able to find extra curricular stuff super easy at Edge Hill!
Y- Yoga. Just one of the many things you can get involved with at Edge Hill Sport!
Z- Zoo! More specifically, Chester Zoo! The campus is quite close to Chester Zoo, so if it’s something you’d like to go see, then why not?
