14 People You’ll See In Every Lecture At UEA

You’ve all been to a lecture, you’ve all seen or know these kinds of people, maybe you even are one. We thought it was about time someone pointed you guys out. If you hadn’t spotted all of them take a look around your next lecture. They’re all there, we promise.

1. The student that sits right at the front every lecture.

Nothing special happens down there, you don’t get an automatic first. You’ll get the exact same education sitting right at the back with the rest of us.

2. That one person who is constantly nodding and saying ‘hmm, yes’.

You don’t know what the lecturer is on about any more than anyone else in the room.

3. Those people who always look ‘on point’.

While you’re there in joggers and a t-shirt looking like you’ve just woken up.

4. The extreme note takers.

The student who is desperately trying to write down every word the lecturer says as well as everything that’s on the power point even though it all goes up on Blackboard.

5. The ones with the munchies.

What are you eating and why are you eating it now? It’s always loud and it always smells.

6. That student who sits right in front of you and opens up Facebook.

They literally turned up just to sign the register and annoy everyone else. At least have the courtesy to sit at the back.

7. The hungover one who still manages to show up at 9am.

This person usually sits right at the back and still stinks of alcohol and cigarettes from Mantra night before.

8. The person who rocks up to lecture without a pen or paper.

10 minutes in you can a tap on the shoulder from this person asking for supplies – why didn’t you bring your own?

9. That one person who decides to leave early.

Not even subtly either: bang, scratch, creak, slam – they’re gone.

10. The sycophant.

This person loves the lecturer. They laugh at all of their bad jokes, beam at them all lecture and even go up and have a chat afterwards. What do they think they’re going to achieve? Marking is anonymous.

11. That person who went the extra mile to get a Costa coffee from the JSC when their lecture was in Congregation Hall.

12. The multi-tasking genius.

This person has their phone, laptop, kindle, notebook and textbook all laid out in front of them and appears to be able to use all of these things at once throughout the course of the lecture.

13. The one who accidentally falls asleep and then jolts awake.

You’ve been there. Late night or night out the day before, warm lecture theatre and a lecturer with a monotonous voice – perfect napping environment. How can you not fall asleep?

14. That group who are always late.

It’s the same people every week. They all gather in the Hive before the lecture, start gossiping, grab a coffee and stroll very casually to the lecture. Rocking up 10 minutes late every time to everyone else’s annoyance.
