15 Things You Wish You Knew While You Were Still at University

There are a number of things we probably should have been told before going to university. Many of us made our first mistakes in Freshers week(s) so lets try to keep this as chronological as possible.

1. Don’t buy the Freshers wristbands.

Spontaneity is underrated massively.

Because this may be the only time in your life that you actually like them.

3. At least try to do everything in moderation.

A night to be remembered should actually be remembered.

4. But don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

Stumbling home drunk on a tuesday afternoon or using dishwasher tablets in the washing machine is not considered a learning experience when you graduate.

5. Join all the sports and social stuff.

It is actually just a great way to meet like minded people or try something new.

10. Find a few cool places for taking people on dates.

As appealing as a Wetherspoons often is, you should change it up a little bit.

11. You don’t have to go “out out” to enjoy yourself.



12. If you do go “out out” then dance.

Even if you are terrible (which most people are) it looks and feels less awkward than standing still with a drink in your hand.

13. Learn a language.

You have a lot of free time, might as well use it Mon’Amie.

14. Having a deadline three months away does not mean you have a two and a half month grace period to procrastinate.



15. Finally, just don’t stress.

Things like exams seem stressful but as long as you try your best that is all you can really do, save your stressing for the real world and enjoy uni while you can.
