Well the official Easter Holidays are this week and last, I think.
7 exams.. I do not envy you
Easter hols (or "spring vacation" as they call them, so they don't have to make up an excuse why we broke up 4 weeks before easter and start exams the day after ) are the last two weeks, this week and next.
all these third years in the kelvin building are slowing down the loading of youtube videos to interrupt my study music! **** OFF! damn third years. third year exams are easy! you don't need to be here!

Well, I've been accepted for a PhD over at Strathclyde, so I'll be getting away from Glasgow uni, YAYYYYYY.
Quite excited about it tbh, Glasgow is going downhill as far as I can see, and Strathclyde (especially the Engineering and Technology subjects) seem to be going from strength to strength.
Glasgow doesn't have nearly as much time for Engineering, Science and Technology and would prefer to keep its traditional subjects of the Arts and Law, etc.
They way they do research over at Strathclyde (in the team I'm going to anyway) is several levels above what it is at Glasgow.
Plus they don't seem to have nearly as many *****, morons, hippies and arts students occupying buildings and wasting money.
Apparently I can't rep you because I have done so recently (don't remember), not that you care anyway, but nice one. Can't say I agree with your assertion, though I'm not a physicist, the amount of funding the department has been given over the last few years is pretty incredible, improvement after improvement for the building since I first started, and huge research grants have been given - in particular one for a neutron generator. I think the university is simply focusing its funding on the strongest areas to keep them strong
Nah, I didn't mean that it had more time for arts than science. I meant that Glasgow doesn't have as much time for science, engineering and technology as Strathclyde does, exemplified by the fact that Strathclyde is putting all its resources into these things (new £83 million Innovation and Technology Centre opening in 2 years), whereas Glasgow would never dream of doing such a thing.
Ah yeah, fair enough Strathy does care about Eng a lot
You could be right - but Strathclyde is certainly doing more.
Thanks for attempting to rep.
Yeah I didn't know that about the Innovation and Technology Centre, you'll never see Glasgow doing something like that. I certainly wouldn't want to do my phd here (not that I want to do one), but as far as my undergraduate and (hopefully) masters go, the prestige (and enjoyment factor I have from being in the west end) just about make up for it.
