10 Things That Will 100 Percent Happen To You At The University of Exeter

Whether you love the early nights and cheesy tunes, hate the hills or the posh girl stereotype, here is a list of some of the things that will 100% happen to you at The University of Exeter.

1. You’ll curse the hills on campus. Every. Single. Day.

No matter how much exercise you do, walking up cardiac or forum hill will never get any easier, and you will always get to the top sweating and out of breath.

2. You’ll vow that you won’t ever go back to Saturday Lemmy, but be back there quicker than you can say ‘Bleed Green’.

It’s rubbish, you know it’s rubbish, everyone knows it’s rubbish, but somehow the call of that sticky dance floor and cheap VKs is far too strong.


3. It’ll be learnt the hard way that if you aren’t on campus by 8am during exam season, there is no way you are getting a seat in the library.

You snooze, you lose.

4. You’ll tell any relative that visits that J.K. Rowling went here.

And you will take them all to The Old Firehouse and proudly declare that The Leaky Cauldron was based on this infamous pizza pub.

5. Half the people you meet will be from Surrey.

And at least half of them will be shocked you don’t regularly shop at Waitrose.

6. You’ll develop a completely irrational dislike for Plymouth Uni.

We are deep rooted rivals for reasons which we will never fully understand. But Exeter is better, ok?


7. Your Exeter night out will start at 7:30pm and you’ll be tucked up in bed by 2am.

Exeter are famed for their early club nights, so where it might be a shock when you first arrive, you learn to secretly enjoy it because sleep is better.

8. Gym gear will be worn on campus most days, even if you aren’t going to the gym.

Sports leggings are just so comfy, don’t judge us!

9. You’ll make it to your first 8:30am lecture, and then never make it again.

Whose stupid idea was 8:30am lectures? You might drag yourself to a few, fueled with enough coffee to kill a man, but eventually you’ll give up and hit the snooze button.

10. All of your student loan will be spent on Costa, Forum meal deals and Ram curly fries.

But no one ever cured a hangover with a green juice.
