Here’s Proof That James The Swan Was The Most Exciting Thing To Ever Happen At Bath Spa Uni
Spring 2016 at Bath Spa University was a Spring like any other, until James The Swan happened.
Everything seemed completely normal at first.
Students were preparing for essays, the sheep were grazing, and the campus swans were drifting across the Newton Park lake.
But, suddenly, one swan in particular seemed to be everywhere.
This guy seriously had no boundaries. At all.

No one knew where or how he acquired the name ‘James’. All anyone knew was that he was here to stay.

Fortunately, Bath Spa Uni is no stranger to dealing with rogue swans.
However, James was no ordinary rogue swan. Emails had to be sent out about him.
only at Bath Spa would you get an email about a resident swan on campus, who we all need to basically ignore to get it to leave WHAT

And fan art was produced.
Day 3 of the Bath Spa Swantraversy: despite the bloodshed, a swan ended up getting elected for VP Activities and NUS Ambassador in last night's SU elections. And we were just supposed to help @burmeistars move in to her new house. They're taking us down from within… (72/366) #project366 #day72 #bathspauni #swans #drawing
It all escalated very quickly.

Until one day, he finally flew away.
Finding out James the swan no longer resides at BSU. 😭

Leaving everyone to question where he could possibly have gone.

Of course. That would be our swan.
Love how our baby swan has finally left campus but is still causing problems on the roads of Bath 😂#Spa'd
