18 Things You Actually Learn When You Study at The University of Manchester
There’s more to learn than you might think at UoM.
1. Putting two universities right next to each other can only really end one way…
2. To never trust the weather.
You might see blue sky when you wake up, but Manchester always finds a way to rain.
3. That you should never have to wait longer than 4 minutes for a bus.

If you go to Sainsbury’s or Morrisons after 12, cheese sandwiches will be the only ones left, and who wants those?
5. But that there’s really only one place to eat on campus.
The Veggie Cafe. 🙌
6. Ali G Commons is actually the busiest part of the world.
is it actually possible to get a seat in the Ali G?

It’s an exam yeah but look where it is…
13. That you can make a drinking game purely out of being inside a building.
