My 7 Favourite Things About Being A UL Student

1. The Cajun Chicken Rolls In The Stables

There’s not a whole lot else to say really? I think every UL student knows the worth of The Stables’ most celebrated and delicious delicacy – the Cajun chicken roll, closely followed by the sweet waffle and Nutella mmm …

 

2. The Window Seats In The Library

I don’t know about you but whenever I find myself with a window seat in the library (which is almost always) I never seem to get any work done. It must be the constant people-watching and trend spotting from the first floor!

 

3. The Tunes In Icon

Lads is it just me or are the tunes on the bottom floor of Icon the best ever? Maybe it’s just because I’m stuck in the nineties and listen to Craig David and Westlife on a regular basis, but seriously. I hate even going to the ladies incase I miss a good song, they’re that good. I’m not usually much of a dancer but if you catch me in D’Icon on a Monday night you’d beg to differ!

 

4. Finding My Way Around The Main Building

Four years later and I still haven’t mastered the main building. Even if I was here for another four years I still don’t think I’d manage. I was honesty glad of the First Seven Weeks orange T-shirt gang, never mind the first years. It’s great that getting lost in there is a valid excuse for being late for class.

 

5. Car Parking

“UL students are so lucky, there’s so much student parking here”… said no student ever! Your best bet is to head over the living bridge to the pitches, plenty of parking there, if you don’t mind the trek back.

 

6. Talent At The PESS Building

If you’re looking for a man, no better place to be than the PESS building. Yes the PESS is famously renowned for producing strapping young P.E. teachers. Let’s not forget that the Munster rugby team also train on campus gals, if you’re lucky enough to ‘em, maybe stumble across training some evening, you know, by chance? *coughs* Monday’s at 7pm *coughs*

 

7. Freebies

Okay so who doesn’t love free stuff? Especially when you’re a broke ass student on a budget. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a cold slice of pizza, a 99 without the flake or even just a ball point pen, we still want it, and occasionally may fight over it!
