Liverpool University has been fantastic so far, I have made some amazing friends and had many great experiences. There are plenty of societies to choose from, there's something for everyone whether you like sports, arts and crafts, gaming, activism, politics, want to learn a new skill or something else. Language courses are available so you can study languages alongside your degree - something which some of my friends have done. I study Geology and I get on well with everyone on my course. Since there aren't many people, we all know each other and people from all years talk to each other and know each other. The Herdman society puts on many lectures throughout the year including the Herdman symposium - a day of interesting talks on a wide variety of topics.
