Enjoy the last few weeks of your summer vacation, as this is the harsh reality you will face from September 21st onwards: lectures. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoy the lectures (the 9am lectures might be a different story). It’s always a little bit of a shock to plant your behind on a lecture theatre seat after a summer of bumming around and enjoying the lack of responsibilities. Unless you had a job, although in that case the change might be pleasant.
Oh, and the good news is that you don’t have to wait until September 21st to sit down in a lecture hall! Freshers, you will have to go a few initiation lectures/meetings during Freshers’ Week. This photo was actually taken in the Boyd Orr Building, Lecture Theatre 222 (one of the big ones by the main entrance) during the Economic and Social History meeting during my Freshers’ Week last year.
A tip about this particular lecture theatre: don’t slouch if you’re at all groggy or tired. The seats, although they may not seem like it, are very comfortable and the room is always quite warm. Especially when you’re tired. Trust me.
