7 Basic Things To Know About Life In UL

1. The VocabULary

Brown Thomas is a statue, not a Kerryman who was left out in the sun too long, Black Dog is a black dog, Bun man no longer has a bun and Skinny Gaz isn’t skinny. The ski slopes are much more boring than they sound, the Stables doesn’t have any horses and the Living Bridge is inanimate. Most of this can be found on YikYak and will be continued on YikYak and there’ll be more notorious figures that rise and fall in popularity, but for now this should keep you up to speed.

2. Clubs and Soc.s

UL has a lot of clubs and societies that you should join. Pick a few, try them out and fall in love. It’s something everyone should be a part of.  There’s drama, archery, karate, dance, games, skydive and tea appreciation.

4. Student Nights

Student nights out are Tuesday and Thursday and international night is popular on a Friday.  Recently though, Monday club has become a big thing and the Stables is always hopping on a Wednesday night. Thursday is typically the big night out, it’s like mass in the 50’s but for young people; everyone gets dressed up and talks about each other behind their backs.

6. Farmer’s Market

There’s a market on every Tuesday in the courtyard which has some great food and you’ll often see clubs or socs fundraising with a bake sale. Go over, treat yourself and help them out.

7. Participate In Those Surveys!

Students will come up to you and bother you to take part in questionnaires, interviews and other random stuff, be helpful (you’ll likely be in their situation someday) and remember there’s often a free treat at the end or you could just rob a pen because they’re not expensive but I’m too lazy to go down to O’Mahony’s Book Shop on campus anyway.
