16 Things You’ll Learn To Hate About Being a Kent Student
Whilst you learn to love uni life, you also learn to hate some things about Kent. It’s all part of that magical university experience.
1. How far Keynes is from Darwin.
Your lecture in Keynes is supposed to finish at 10.55 and you have another one starting at 11 in Darwin. You’re about to find out just how unfit you are.
2. The library and its building work.
You know that map you got during Freshers’ week? Well, it’s useless because everything moves around. All the time. You’ll have graduated by the time it’s finished anyway which makes the whole thing even less bearable.
3. Venue and its lack of variety.
Replying “well, you know, we went to Venue” to “how was your night out” will become a regular habit. And what’s worse is you’ll understand exactly what it means.
4. The early evening buses into town.
That daily game of How Many Students Can You Fit in a Bus?
5. The night bus.
The longest bus route in the world which doesn’t seem to go anywhere near your house.
6. The queue in Essentials between lectures.
Surely not every single person on campus needs to buy something before their next lecture?! You’re all going to be late now anyway.
7. People who are on campus for open days.
They could at least try not to get in our way.
8. The library’s weird temperatures.
It just needs to stop being so boiling.
Where’s your receipt? Is it even emailing receipts today? Did the submission go through? Too much stress, so much hatred.
10. The Kent Eye.
Even if you loved it at first, you’ll end up hating it. Why’s it even there? We’re on a hill anyway. And why are tickets so expensive??
11. Club promoters.
On Facebook, in town, on campus… You’ll never get away from them.
12. Watching happy people walk past your seminar room.
You’re half way through a two hour seminar, in a ground floor seminar room and all you can see is happy people walking past the windows, which just makes your misery intensify…
13. Rutherford and Eliot.
Apparently they were designed by an architect who also designed prisons… If that wasn’t his speciality then it definitely should have been.
14. The cold wind outside the library.
15. The typo on UKC hoodies.
We go to the “University of of Kent”, didn’t you know? And we’re supposed to be the best university in town… It’s just embarrassing.
Love it for the parties, hate it for its location. Why’s it so far away?!
