In my first year at uni we were told to stay inside our house just off campus because a gun man was randomly shooting people. Then two weeks later, another gun man was shooting people from a tower block and we had to hide behind a wall.

Needless to say, we didn't tell our parents this had happened.

I had a guy who was really creepy, verging on stalking me. He wanted me to be his girlfriend and was just incredibly forward and pushy and a bit batshit crazy tbh.

What made it even more weird was that he's anti-immigration and I was like "have you noticed my skin colour?!?!" :erm:

Thankfully got rid of him after a term, before any uni authorities had to get involved

I got drunk for the first time. Apparently I spent an hour explaining why I want to be a stripper and showing off my chest hair.

That was a new experience for me :dontknow:

Oh and there was a time where we were given literally 36 hours to research/read for and write an essay. Except the essay had no reading list or title :lolwut: When we asked the tutor for guidance, he said "oh just research on your favourite area of French Baroque music!" Coz clearly we all knew **** about French Baroque music enough to have chosen a favourite area to potentially research :nothing:

When we complained to our main college tutor, his response was "oh well you know, TLG, we DID warn you about this at interview!"

No you ****ing didn't, Robert :mad:

How did you do?
No idea - it was one of our weekly tutorial essays and very few tutors gave a grade for those. If I did get a grade, it was probably a 2.1 but I suspect it just had comments and went ungraded...

Very cool, shame about the overnight essay. I guess it's good practice for *all* eventualities.

I was on the outskirts but it was over a decade ago and it can happen anywhere.

Ok, obviously it must have been scary, but at the same time, so ****ing exciting... and a pretty cool story to tell...

Worth about 50 lad points...




I can't think of anything particularly crazy tbh... One thing which was just stupid was when our SU banned sombreros that were being handed out at our fresher's fair because they thought it would offend people... :confused:

Omg. Similar thing happened to me. There was a guy following me from one campus to another (20 mins away from each other). I think he was an older student. He sat opposite me on the bus and gave me the creepiest looks. I was so freaked out.

He then proceeded to follow me to my accommodation and was pestering me to let him inside. Thankfully it was during the day and there were quite a few people walking around. He left me alone eventually. I kinda opened the door and entered quickly then ran upstairs to my room. Would have been scary to happen at night!
