Can you sum up your life as a student in three words?
Challenging, awesome, memorable.
If you could re-do your time at the University is there anything you'd do differently?
If I could re-do my time, then I would have definitely got involved sooner. I was too focused on my academic work and missed out on opportunities to have different experiences, meet new people and have fun! I more than made up for this in my other years but I would have definitely pushed myself further in my 1st year to try new things sooner. Going to university is quite a daunting experience at first, but the best way of overcoming this and making the most out of your time is to throw yourself in!
