I can't believe my first year of university is done. All practical performances out of the way. All assignments handed in. That's it. I can't believe how fast it has gone. Here's what I've learnt from it all.
There are a lot of common misconceptions about what it's like to be a drama student. I've asked some of my fellow first year drama students a few questions, to see if they can sum up their own experiences and challenge some of the stereotypes we face in performing arts.
There are some parts of a university experience that are pretty much inevitable, and one of those is having to find and rent a house for second and third year. After spending a first year in halls of residence, meeting new people and forming friendships (some that may last, some that may not), there soon comes a time to start house hunting.
It's always nice when friends from back home take the time out of their own busy schedules (whether that be due to full time work, higher education or travelling the world) to come and visit you in your new home at university. We spent the day doing some of my favourite things to do on a quiet weekend in Worcester; here, I am going to give you some top tips of what to do both in Worcester and generally, when friends visit you.
With my second half of first year well on its way, it seems like an appropriate time to reflect on my first semester of university.
