I love being a student at Strathy! All of our lecture power points are put up on our university website "myplace" which is specific to each student. It's easy to access and full of useful information. I like studying at the library which has different floors for different study types: silent (my favourite), quiet and group work. The group work floor is lively and great for anything you need to do with other people. They have great vending machines which may not seem important, but when you are panic studying and staying up late they are fab! I am in 3rd year of uni but I am still not exactly sure how to access papers and books. It's all a bit complicated and on computers but I'm sure if you actually asked the staff, they could help you. The union is brilliant!!!! Cheap drinks and a great vibe. My favourite is "The yard" which is a bar with hundreds of pool tables- Very chill and sells pizza, perfect! The union staff are also very helpful. They can help with clubs and societies, finance, equality, disability and welfare etc. They are young and very approachable which I think makes a difference. I wouldn't want to go and talk to some scary, old, grumpy woman about my personal issues, no thank you. I'll stick with the young, fun ones. Most of Strathclyde's buildings are a bit hideous. Built in the 1970's they are leaky, ugly and falling to pieces. However, does that really matter when you are getting a great education? Overall, I like being a strathy student. If I've ever had a problem, I have been helped and supported quickly and the social life is good fun.
