Wrapping up “Meet Your Advisor” week here at the HUB. Hopefully you met your advisor and they are class, if you need more info. on the system read “who is your advisor and what do they do?”.
However, while we aren’t saying there is anything wrong with UL’s current advisors, if they wanted to bring in a few more as super subs, we have some suggestions.
1. Michael D. Higgins
Firstly, how cool would it be to to have him at our games to celebrate every time we score?
Born in Limerick, a politician, poet, sociologist, author and broadcaster. He was SU President & a Lecturer in UCG, and was a Visiting Professor at Southern Illinois University. SO, we think he would have plenty of advice for his advisees.
However, if he thinks doing his job is more important than coming to UL we would settle for Michael Tea Higgins. So cute!
“Welcome to a new year at
Hogwarts UL! Before we begin our banquet, I would like to say a few words. And here they are: Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!”
He would say loads of wise things and he is #BeardGoals, what’s not to love? He could advise you on really important academic matters, such as, if you should hit snooze on your alarm one more time …
UL is basically Hogwarts without the magic anyways, he would fit right in. Any spells he had up his sleeve for insuring you pass your exams would be sound too.
“They never replied to me on Tinder”
“They had no chicken rolls left in Spar, I feel personally victimised”
“I have a 4-6 p.m. tutorial on a Friday, I feel personally victimised”
We know what your advisor Elsa would say …
4. Bridget Jones
While we imagine having her as the advisor for the aspiring journos in UL, she is also simply the perfect Lady to advise us all on the best type of relationship to be in:
5. Flan Costello?
If you haven’t met him yet then WARNING, he is likely to charge a fiver or a “flan” when you do.
When they were going to rename one of the bridges in Limerick after JFK there was a campaign to get the City Council to reconsider & name it after FLAN. We are joking, you can read the newspaper article here. We are certain he would advise us all very well on many matters.
Move over Michael D. we have someone even smaller and older.
Advise you, he will.
“Hey Yoda, I was thinking of posting my third Instagram selfie of the day, do you think that’s too much or…”
Imagine! No seriously, her as an advisor … imagine!
“Hey Bey, I was thinking of checking in with my ex just to see how they…”
“Hey Bey, I have five 9 a.m. starts can I just…”
“Hey Bey, so he liked this other girl’s Insta pic but apparently they are just…”
Who would you like to see as an adviser in UL??
