    My dad heard someone on Jonathon Ross's show making fun off it a couple of weeks ago. Could easily just be someone taking the piss but i wanted to check.

    One of the bars shut down and everyone said it was good 'coz students are "drinking less", but the ONLY reason it shut down was coz Aston is in the city centre and Broad Street etc is a 10 minute walk away. There is still a union, shops and banks etc and yes there will be a freshers week...and yes it will be fantastic

    yeah thats true even if there was no union, theres plenty of students in the city and we are RIGHT there for the clubs, so really who would want to hang out in the union? heh

    Yes, Aston Students Guild is still there. As aprt of a 5 year plan, they're closing down the upstairs bar (which is used for sports sheshes, once a week), and turning the entire upstairs into an alchohol free area. There'll be a chemist, noodle bar (???), and other stuff. fresher's week will still be on, don't panic. :-)
