With term now fully underway, finding time to be sociable is hard. It’s different to switch off; you’re overcome with a feeling of guilt that my time would be better spent studying. Welcome to fourth year.
However, one thing geologists definitely do full-heartedly… barcrawls! When we have time for fun, we certainly know how to have fun. Last week was the Geology PCSB Red T-Shirt barcrawl. We welcome the first-years to Leicester and we show them what it’s really like to be a student studying Geology, AMAZING.
I think roughly 150-200 people attended, of whom were both undergrads and postgrads, roaming the streets of the city. This was really strange for me. The majority of people who I knew were only in my year group. Prior to studying abroad at The University of Arizona, I knew people in the years above me since I was a 2nd year back then. I’m now back in Leicester as a 4th year and I’m seeing all these fresh faces in the department. It was being like a new kid at school.
Oh how we’ve grown up!
