University Bucket List | CityBlock

University is a very unique time of life. While you get more independence when living away from home and making your own decisions day-to-day, you still don’t have to deal with a lot of the responsibilities associated with adult life. Sadly, university isn’t forever, but that just makes it all the more special. Here is our university bucket list – a list of things you need to do before you leave university.

Use Your Student Discount…FOR EVERYTHING!

10% and 20% discounts may not seem like much, but you’ll miss them when they’re gone. Whether it’s a local takeaway, the hairdresser, Topshop or the cinema, use your student discount wisely. And by wisely, we mean all the time.

Go to Lectures in Your Pyjamas

Going to a lecture in your pyjamas, or any other inappropriately comfortable clothing, has to be one of the most shameless things you can do while at university. It may be embarrassing, everyone including the lecturer will probably stare at you, but after a while you’ll be so comfy that you don’t care.

Gorge Like You’ve Never Gorged Before

You’re in charge of what you eat, but still young enough to not feel bad about eating £40 worth of fast food in one sitting. Make the most of it; you’ve only got three or four years before you have to eat fruit and vegetables more than once a week.

Be a Freshers’ Rep

If your university has a scheme for mentoring Freshers during Freshers’ Week, get involved! Not only do you get to relive your own Freshers’ Week, but you get to pass on some knowledge to the new students and make some new friends along the way. Don’t be shy!

Get Involved in Something Different

Whether it’s a sport, activity or society, take a risk and do something you’ve never done before. At university, you are offered a range of activities and opportunities that you may never have the chance of trying out again. You may end up finding that it was the best decision you made at university.

Have Fun

Whatever you do at university, make sure you look back on the experience and smile. It’s your time to discover who you are and what you want from life. You only have a limited time before you are out into the real world, so enjoy it.

We hope you enjoyed reading our university bucket list. Enjoy yourselves this term and let your hair down before exams roll around.
