    The best thing when i was at uni was the friends i had and we used to go out a lot between lectures and had so much free time which i don't have now from working i used to go to the gym whilst at uni but now i just try do it at home.

    The worst thing was the dissertation absolutely hated it and lectures after 5pm when it was winter as i did not feel like going to it then having to walk home at 6 or 7. Also hated the 9am lectures or seminars.

    Same in my uni, its £3.50 for a fish and chips or a small lasagne, the soup and jackets are actually cheap but if you want a proper meal its cheaper to go to the takeaways on campus.

    There was a eat for less store that sold sandwiches and baguettes for a £1 as well as jacket potato. Went there a lot don't know what happened to it think it closed down?
    If you get chips on its own it's £1.20.
    That's why I bring my own food.

    Best: The opportunities that completing a degree opens.

    Worst: Multiple assignments with similar deadlines; and, students that haven't researched their career plans fully that you can tell (from their current belly aching) will blame the course/university for their likely failures.

    I can't understand why people would want to spend that much on food everyday, i wonder if she realises how much she would save if she brought it from home.
