Your guide to heading back to Uni after the holidays

It’s that time of year again frands! The never ending holiday which is the uni break has finally come to an end.

But what to do what to do what to do? Whether it’s your first year, or your 11th (guilty) here are 7 red hot tips just for you.

PS: Why 7 and not 10? Because we’re sure you have better things to do than read all 10.

Actually show up

This might be self explanatory but as the days drag on and your motivation wanes you’ll find it harder and harder to drag your sorry butt to class. But trust me, you need to actually go to class to make a red hot go of it you know?

Show up yes, but with no chill? No.

Sure, yes, you need to go to class that’s all very important but… don’t be the person who shuts themselves in the library, sits at the very front of the classroom and corrects the teacher. Uni isn’t the be all and end all ya know, and sometimes Ps really do get degrees.

But it’s a delicate balance.

Did someone go a little too hard at O week? Dat you big guy? Pace yourself friend. There are plenty of Wednesday nights for you to get lit and lose your shit at Fannys (it’s still Fannys).

There’s a bar on campus for a reason

Dranks between class (hang on a minute is that even a thing?) is your god given right friend. Don’t waste away all of your time and whatever else in the library. Relax, unwind, and balance friend balance.

Mature age students aren’t that bad

I can’t believe I’m saying this but I promise you, they aren’t that bad! They are usually the most organised, the most on top of things and also the best people to have in in your corner come group assignemtn time.

You don’t need to have it all figured out

Have literally no idea what you want to do? Feel weird because all of your mates seem to have their shit together and are doing degrees that might have a flashy title? Never fear friend, your arts degree is just as important as that engineering degree we promise! You just do you, always and forever.

Parking still sucks

Yeah, it still sucks and the bastards will still fine you if you don’t get a ticket. Oh and hot tip… if you leave early, leave your parking ticket for someone else. Good Karma man. Goooood Karma.
