Freshers week is here and students across the country are preparing to start their new lives in (what we believe to be) the greatest city in the world.
They will be looking forward to a new adventure in a new place but this time of year will also bring back fond memories for graduates who studied in Liverpool. It has definitely got us thinking about some of our university traditions.
From climbing Mount Pleasant to stockpiling instant noodles at Hanover Street Home Bargains - did you really study in Liverpool if you haven’t done these things....
1. Ended the night with a Nabzys
You just have to end the night out with a Nazbys. No matter what side of town you start the night on, you always seem to find yourself ordering cheesy chips at the Leece Street takeaway in the early hours. Photo: Nabzys
2. Gone to Sh** Indie Disco on a Thursday
It is basically student law that you have to go to Shindie at least once. Expect indie bangers, inflatables and confetti. Photo: Shit Indie Disco
3. Trekked up Mount Pleasant
Rushing to get to a lecture on time is already difficult but add in the absolute trek that is Mount Pleasant and you’re likely to be late and dripping with sweat. Who needs the gym when you basically have to climb a mountain to get to uni?
4. Visited every city centre Wetherspoons
You’re pretty much guaranteed to visit every Wetherspoons during your time as a student in Liverpool. We have quite a few in the city centre and a go-to for a cheap fry up or cheap and cheerful pre-drinks. Photo: Adobe Stock
