Six Reasons Why Student Life is Better Than Real Life
Has anyone ever told you that your university days are the best of your life? It may not seem like it when you’re waiting for your student loan to come through, wondering how you’ll survive another week, or when you’re on day three of your library all-nighter trying to revise for your exams. But once it’s all over and you’re thrown into the real world you’ll be wishing you were back in that lecture hall. Here, the guys at Mystudenthalls.com tell you why student living is the best kind of living…
- Everything is cheap
Ok, so everyone complains about not having any money at university but a lot of companies want to market their services to students so will make them a LOT cheaper. Take advantage of your NUS discount cards while you can and lap up the discounts. Half price Domino’s Pizza? £1 Jägerbombs? 1/3 off rail travel? Yes please.
- You have all the free time
Once you’ve made it along to those few hours of lectures each week your time is your own to do all the important things in life like procrastinating and binge-watching Netflix. Uni is the most free time you’ll ever experience in your life before you get a full-time job and actually have to spend an entire day working.
- Student meals
Nothing beats feeling like Gordon Ramsay after whipping up a plate of chicken nuggets, potato smilies and baked beans. Only at university is it acceptable to have a staple diet of pizza before people start judging you in the real world for not actively promoting the benefits of avocado and quinoa.
- Fancy dress is actively encouraged
Only at university is it perfectly acceptable to see someone walking down the street at 6pm dressed as a crisp packet. No one goes out in fancy dress in the real world, let alone dedicates weeks to carefully plan and make their costume, it’s all workwear and snazzy payday purchases.
- Living with your best friends
Finding student accommodation has never been easier and you will have endless fun, parties and morning after debriefs under one roof. What’s more, when you graduate money will be tight and you could end up living in a dodgy shared flat that’s so small the bedroom is in the kitchen (not cool). While you’re at uni, you can stay in awesome purpose-built halls which not only have all the amenities you’d need but some even have added extras like a dedicated cinema room, party room or SLIDE!
- You actually have the energy to do things
Mid-week cinema, gigs, sport matches, you’ll do it all at university. Probably helped by the fact there is time for endless naps to recover from all the fun you’re having. Once you’ve graduated your energy levels will hit rock bottom and you will think of every excuse possible not to socialise and to stay inside slumped on the sofa.
