Meet Eve

EveMy name is Eve Coffey, and I'm a third year BA English student. I also have the pleasure of singing in one of the university's acappella groups, Score, and I write for my personal blog about a range of things, from music and arts to mental health issues. I'll be writing and posting about my experiences as a student, choosing and applying to Birmingham, and other university related topics over the coming year.


Get to know Eve

  1. In 10 years I want to be...a journalist for an arts or culture magazine, and I would love to be living in Brighton!
  2. Every uni student needs…a large wok pan - you can make pretty much anything in a wok!
  3. My best piece of advice for students is…to stay true to yourself, even though you're surrounded by new influences.
  4. My favourite thing about Birmingham is…the hidden little arty places in Digbeth and the Jewellery Quarter.
  5. Best study space on campus is…the Mason Lounge - it's definitely the most relaxed!
  6. If I could be anyone for a day I would be…Freddie Mercury, and I would sing Bohemian Rapsody on repeat.
  7. When not studying you’ll find me…singing, either with my A Capella group or alone (basically all the time!)
  8. When I was little I wanted to be…an illustrator for children's books - part of me still does.
  9. Best budget friendly meal…is tofu and veggie red Thai curry. It's so easy to make and so cheap!
  10. Snobs or The Soak…The Soak - I'd take a cheap pint over an expensive vodka and coke any day!
