16 Things You’ll Only Understand If You Studied at Keele University

Why would anyone want to study anywhere else?

1. You’ll probably never fully get used to how much greenery there is around the campus.

2. Though it’s hard to forget that you’re in the countryside because you can always smell it.

You won’t always see it, but you’ll know.

3. Finding a seat in Costa to sit with your coffee is an absolute mission.

There’s almost always a queue, meaning there’s no such thing as “just a quick coffee” in between lectures.

4. And you irrationally fear for your life if you set the alarm off at the library.

Whether you’ve taken a book out or not, you can never know when they’ll go 😱

5. Only having Hanley and Newcastle to choose from on a night out and worrying you’ll make the wrong decision.

Neither town is guaranteed to be bangin’ on the same night, so you have to come to a group decision.

6. But everyone knows that chips or curly fries at the end of the night at the SU is a necessity.

Whether you’re hungry or not, it’s obligatory.

7. Learning the local lingo such as “shug” and “pisser” and catching yourself using it.

You weren’t sure what they meant when you arrived, but now they’re pretty much part of your vocabulary.

8. Meeting Neil Baldwin is everyone’s claim to fame.

He’s been on TV and you’ve probably met him. Do you even need that degree now?

9. Begrudgingly accepting that you’ll never get signal in the library.

So you’re always on Facebook, because signal in the library is just unheard of in all corners of the building.

10. Getting used to how easy life at a campus uni is.

There are unis where you can’t just walk from lecture to lecture? 👎👎

11. But it does mean you’re guaranteed to bump into someone you know wherever you go.

It’s a blessing and a curse.

12. Hating Staffs but not having any valid reasons as to why you hate them.

You become silently enraged when you hear about Staffs and reject Tinder matches from Staffs because you’re a true Keelite.

13. Feeling ripped off when you go on a night out anywhere other than Keele SU.

14. And not being able to resist the lure of going to a social on Wednesday night or Lockdown on Monday.

You know you want to.

15. You’re constantly struck by the beauty of the Keele campus.

How can you not be proud to study here?

16. And after being here a while, you realise that they call it the Keele bubble because you’ll never want to leave.

It’s like a little village. You’ve got everything you could ever need, so why go anywhere else?
