10 Things Only University of Lincoln Students Will Understand
The University of Lincoln sure has its quirks.
1. Steep hill. It’s not that steep but you’ll still avoid it at all costs.
“Lincoln locals” take regular trips up the steep hill, but not students. Until third year when you come to the realisation that you won’t have a cultural work out opportunity on your doorstep any more.
2. The deceiving weather.
Look out your window in the morning (or afternoon) and it’ll seem as though the sun is shining. But alas, Lincoln has caught you out again – gale force winds will knock you off your feet and result in embarrassment as your windswept skirt reveals all.
3. The ridiculous amount of swans and unnamed birds along the Brayford.
Some call them “durkeys”.
4. The third floor of the Main Admin building is like the third floor corridor from Harry Potter.
No one really goes up there, and unless you want to test out one of the psychology sleep labs you will probably not even know it exists.
5. Having a cheeky pint between lectures at The Shed
You really are glad that it is back in your life after nearly losing it.
6. The Superbull queue
Standing around, slightly intoxicated for an hour and a half is not unusual. You don’t care how long you have to wait – those vodka redbulls are calling your name. From the sticky floor to the RnB room, you’re willing for a Friday night partying with the bull.
7. You mocked Danesgate because it resembled a derelict building in Chernobyl. But now it’s been refurbished and you really want to live there.
8. BBQs on the architecture green.
Obviously not at this time of year, but come Spring/Summer students will think it is appropriate to wear bikinis on campus. Everyone has played Frisbee on the architecture green or ended up attempting to retrieve a football that rolled away, out of control into that murky pool of water.
9. How there never seems to be enough books for your chosen modules.
Well we had to get at least one academic point in.
10. And of course, being verbally abused by the Inbetweeners.
But any publicity is good publicity and we all know that University of Lincoln is the best university around.
Here’s to our “second-rate” education.
