29 Ways To Tell You’re A Bangor Student

You might think that each Uni is pretty much the same, and that where you go only affects how much you have to pay to get the train back after Christmas.

Wrong.

Being a student at Bangor means that you’re completely different to people studying elsewhere. You’ll find yourself living a lifestyle that is completely alien to other students, and there’s certain things that only you will understand. That’s right, get ready to feel special:

1. Having to walk home barefoot because your shoes are stuck to the club dance floor.

2. Paying more for food shopping because going to Aldi/Asda/Iceland isn’t worth the walk up bitch hill.
