    Hey guys,

    I know this is a pretty obscure question and no one will probably know but does anyone know if Northumbria uses undergrad students as wardens in the halls? It's just I know a few uni's that have that system and I'd really love to do it next year.

    Do wardens have any friends? :confused:

    No I'm assuming if you want someone to take a role in a building with hundreds of teenagers you want the most introverted anti-social people possible...

    Why would you want wardens in halls though? I mean, the ''lets party until we trash this place'' type of people is not at universities anymore (hopefully).

    No hopefully they aren't at uni anymore... though given what I saw the last freshers they still are :eek:.

    No I wanna do it cos it'll be (hopefully) a really positive experience, you know making sure everyones ok, waking people up for fire drills .

    Waking up everyone in the halls for fire drills doesn't sound bad at all! It's just a bit of a risk that some students could be a bit prejudice and think of wardens as some kinds of weirdos. I was a bit prejudice as well.

    Well, I thought that the wardens are usually one or two years above the freshers.

    There's one where I live, I'm pretty sure she's a student but she's late 20-ish and either 3rd or 4th year (I think!) Or even postgrad. But she's definitely a student.

    I doubt they'd let a Fresher (presuming you are?) loose in the office. You could always ring up and ask though.
