second year – second chance to enjoys the beauties of uni life :)

Hey guys 🙂

Hope that everyone is doing well and that you are all stress-free after the massive push related to submission of essays, assignments, etc.

I have to admit that it has been pretty busy around me, with essays to write /one of which was a group assignment, and as you can imagine deciding on the plan to write a 2500-word essay, the structure of each question, allocating tasks, and keeping everything on track can be quite tricky!!! We all were ambivalent at the beginning how to approach the topic, and how we would manage to work together. However, today we all submitted our invaluable creation, so everybody had mixed feelings – happiness and relief that it is all over J, but also a bit of tearfulness that we won’t be working together anymore/.

Anyway, the essays are all submitted now and it is to look ahead at the exams… only 3 weeks to the start of the exam diet… goodness, how quickly the time has passed by!!!

What I want to say with this post is mainly to summarize my experience as a second-year undergraduate at the University of Glasgow, and honestly this is even better than being a fresher!!! First of all, you already are familiar with the place, people, services, buildings, etc and know your way around. Therefore, when it comes to registration, meetings with the advisor of studies, you know what/when/how to do it, so you won’t waste time wondering what you are supposed to do. Then, you still benefit from the wonderful freebies offered generously at the Freshers’ Fair. However, this time you know where you can find the best freebies 😉

Another advantage of being in second year is the fact that you already know the majority of the people in your course, so you feel much more at ease.

Last but not least, I’d like to point out that this year the GUSA /i.e. the gym J/ is offering great variety of sport activities, so there is something for everybody. Not to mention, the pearl in its crown – the new zumba classes, which are extremely popular amongst the students /especially the female part J/ I heartily recommend them for everyone who wants to have fun, reduce the stress and lose a couple of pounds J

Well, hope that this academic year is treating you all well, and if you have any questions/concerns/comments, just get in touch,

    I am also on my second year of studying and i must agree that it is better..
    You have some friends that you are more comfortable with, and you get less stressed from tests and assignments.

    also, you know which classes you can skip and which you can’t.

    Hello! I’m on the 3rd year of college and it’s been amazing but also really tough. University is not a piece of cake!! It’s really good because of my friends and all the new things that I’m learning but I’m so busy this days that I’m spending the past weekends at home doing assingments and studying for the tests! But like you said: uni life is a beauty!!!
