Ha ha. By University Clothing do you mean the hoodies and such like with the University splashed across the front?
yes, its not necessarily that such clothing is bad...in moderation its ok (shows university spirit etc), like lounging about campus over a weekend...its just some people literally live in their uni hoodies!

also some have them customised with their names/nicknames embroidered etc...you can practically learn the names of most of this campus as theyll have it stiched or printed on them somewhere.

I just mean that when on a night out in a club/bar where there will be locals (even if it is a student sort of night) i see no need to be plastered in uni clothing and generally making themselves stand out...whereas I prefer to mix in, maybe thats just me.

and like I said it makes them a target for chavs a lot more, walking around in a uni hoodie would be ok though...its just in combination with chatting to 'mummy and daddy' on the mobile, and generally not giving a damn for personal safety (like counting money in streets, carrying wallet/purse in hand etc)

at which point did i state that i havent got freinds? i have plenty at uni and at home.

I was just saying I am one of many who prefers to go out and enjoy myself and mix with both students and locals..not just sing uni songs and mix with solely uni people..

i hope that clears it up.

i.e. you hate the entire evolution of language, and wish we still communicated with pointing and grunts?
That is absolutely not what I said, don't blow things out of proportion. If using words like "pulled", "minging", and "randomers" is the way language is going, then yes, I do hate it. Disliking vulgar language like this - which essentially disfigures the English language - is completely different from disliking any evolution at all and wishing we were still communicating like cavemen.

Heh. Whether he was being ironic or not, I still disagreed with his point.

Higgy, you'll find the worst offenders with regard to drinking probably have never drunk before university. So when they're finally 'let free' they feel they have to drink loads to make up for it....:rolleyes: I used to drink at home so don't feel I have to go absolutely insane here!
I think this is true. It's probably likely to be the people with more affluent backgrounds who haven't been exposed to alcohol/have stricter parents or people from outside cities who haven't been to clubs before.

I get a bit annoyed about the stereotypical students who think the point in life at the moment is to be as sick as possible, especially as I work at a student bar and I have to clear up their mess! However I wouldn't have a job if it wasn't for them wanting drinks! The pulling stuff is a bit sickening but can be funny - every friday night at 1:40am ish while I'm on my break, the same girl pulls a different guy into a secluded corner shrouded by curtains, near where I sit. It's become a big joke with all the staff, silly lady!

I'm sorry but that is absolute pretentious b*llocks and if you knew anything about linguistics you wouldn't be saying it. There is no such thing as 'disfiguring' language. It evolves naturally and you can't control it except by choosing the words YOU say.

Another thing that i have noticed and i dont know if its just nottingham or throughout the country but a number of students seem to hate and detest the local population, and just sling the word chav around like theres no tommorow. If i go out with my mon uni mates i try and keep them away from my uni mates as the two groups just dont mix whereas im sat smack bang in the middle lol

I find that too, dont get why...I find all the local people I have breif chats with (mostly the cleaners, shop staff, bar staff etc though) to all be freindly and interesting.

thats one of the reason I came to this uni (Durham Uni's Queens campus, which is in Stockton on Tees) is becuase it has a large number of local students.

Id hate to be in a uni (including the main Durham campus itself as well really) were the university dominates the city/town and everyone is either a student or a member of academic staff...

I dont see the point of moving to a uni and not learning about the local area, seeing the sights and mixing with the people.
