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.
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.
