15 People Every Swansea University Student Has Encountered By Now
Swansea University is full of all kinds of people. Here are just 15 of those you’ve probably already encountered.
1. The Welsh student.
It’s a Welsh uni, so this one is hardly surprising. Would’ve been rude to leave them off the list though.
2. The engineer.
Being at a top 10 Engineering college, you’ll soon realise that campus is full of them.
3. The Uplands Diner worker.
If you haven’t been there at least once, do you even go to Swansea?
4. The rugby player.
Again, a Welsh uni – what did you expect?
5. The LGBT society member.
Being such a large, influential and welcoming society at Swansea University, it’s almost impossible not to stumble into one of their coffee socials in JCs!
6. The Swansea Met student.
The rivalry is strong.
7. The football player.
Whether it’s at one of their matches, or out on Wind Street, you’ll instantly recognise their traditional ties and shorts worn after matches.
8. The Sirens cheerleader.
Once a year, the Welsh uni sports teams come out in full force – supported by the lovely Sirens. If you don’t meet one at all, all year, you certainly will on Varsity.
9. The Idols bouncer.
If you’ve been to Wind street and not to Idols, you didn’t do Freshers’ right.
10. The Swansea local.
Don’t look them in the eyes.
Scariest thing you'll see in Swansea tonight are the locals

11. The Archer.
As one of the biggest sports clubs (and one of the most unique), Swansea University Archery Club will be bumped into… in Whites, JCs, or somewhere else that sells alcohol.
12. The Swansea school kid.
Annoying at the best of times.
13. The miserable on-campus cleaner.
“We can’t clean your kitchen, it’s too messy”.
14. The person from anywhere but Cardiff.
Seriously, those from Cardiff avoid Swansea because they know their city can’t compete.
15. And, of course, the best friend(s) you will ever have.
Because at Swansea, your friends become your family, and leaving them after graduation will be one of the hardest things you have to do.
