25 Things You’ll Really Miss About The University of York When You Graduate

The end of term is this week and graduation is just a month away. Time to say goodbye to York 😭😭😭

Here are all the things that will be hard to leave behind. 

1. The (mostly) beautiful campus.

13. And its many landmarks. 

If you didn’t end at least one night out with a drunken walk up Clifford’s Tower to take photos, did you even go to York Uni?

York checked ✔️

14. Chilling in Museum Gardens.

15. And always having loads of choice for places to go for coffee.

16. Or a pint.

York pretty much has a pub for every day of the year and there are probably still loads you want to check out before you have to go. Good excuse for a York reunion ASAP tho 🍺🍻🍷

Every pub seems to have a nice view of the Minster #yorkminster #york #sheardogskiedit #beer #ale #oldspeckledhen

17. Being a short train journey away from Harrogate and Knaresborough. 

If you haven’t visited either yet, definitely go for the day this summer before graduation.

One of the most important UoY student traditions.

The sociology squad at our finest 👯👯

The heels lasted 2 hours before they were replaced with flip flops #glamour #yorksummerball

And competing in Roses each year.

23. Having to say goodbye to some of the best uni friends ever.
