11 Things That Only Students Who Lived In Lucia Foster Will Understand

If you had the pleasure of living in Lucia Foster Welch, then you will understand the good, the bad and the ugly side of LFW.

1. The freighter train wake up call

If you lived in Hudson House, you were often woken up at 5AM from the freighter trains, it’s almost like listening to birds chirping in the morning.

2. The walk home from Oceana

Walking the mile and a half back from Oceana after a night out, face covered in McDonalds, was far from pleasant.

3. Living the furthest away from campus

Lucia Foster is about a 15 minute walk on a good day, so trecking to Uni at 8:30 knowing your other course mates hadn’t even woken up always left you feeling bitter.
