20 Things You’ll Only Understand If You Studied at The University of Liverpool
There are several universities in Liverpool, but only UoL students will understand the following things.
1. Secretly loving the feeling of superiority when you say you go to ‘Uni of’.
As pretentious as it sounds…
2. And willingly taking part in the rivalry between you and John Moores.
It’s no joke. Varsity is where it goes DOWN.
3. But banding together to judge both Edge Hill and Hope.
4. The word ‘initiation’ being banned across all sports clubs.
Calling it “Welcome to…” isn’t fooling anyone. *side glances at Rugby*
5. Feeling jealous of how close to uni anyone living in Vine Court or Crown Place is.
6. But then finding it just as hard to make your 9ams when you do live there.
7. Pre-drinking on the 699 so hard you worry won’t actually make it off the bus.
But at least you’ve been on a pretty little tour of Smithdown. Silver lining. right?
8. The Font is THE place for curly fries and 3 quid cocktails in happy hour.
With Mario cart on the big screen and the Thursday night quiz, it’s time for the squad to assemble and show what they’re made of.
9. Quad vods in Faculty. 🙌
10. The dread you feel when you discover your lecture in the Cyprus Building is immediately followed by one in Sherrington.
Top tips: Stretch beforehand, keep hydrated and don’t look back.
11. Not being able to find a computer in the Sydney Jones or Harold Cohen after lunchtime.
12. And secretly wishing death on those people who log on to a computer before taking a 3 hour break.
13. All nighters in the Sydney Jones surrounded by the reduced foods section of the Myrtle Street Tesco.
30p chicken fajita wrap anyone?
14. The atrocious heating levels in the library.
15. Just not knowing how you feel about those unisex toilets in the Guild.
16. Always using the bombed out church as your meeting point.
Say what you see.
17. Ending every night with a Nabzy’s.
Never forget that red salt goodness. 💔
18. Not being able to forgive yourself for forgetting your wellies for the Raz.
19. Developing a lifelong fondness for the scouse accent.
20. And never really wanting to leave.
