12 Things No One Tells You About Being a Third Year at University

You’re finally a third year. Those mythical students who manage to do the most important academic works of their degree while also partying like freshers.

Third years just have their shit together. 

1. You know who your true friends are and it is great.

9. Your mission to get to know everyone before you leave doesn’t exactly go to plan

10. You’ll feel incredibly wise in comparison to freshers
