Leaving Reflections…

It’s my last week here at Warwick so I thought I’d do a post with some reflections on my three years. Here’s some thoughts:

  1. Campus is really cool: It’s just a great place to be. I love the community that it creates. I had a walk round last week to make sure I’d seen it all, and especially in the early morning sun, it looks pretty beautifulOculusPiazzaBluebell

  2. I’ve made some really great friends here: I’ve come away with great memories and many, many people who I genuinely would like to stay in touch with for the rest of my life – this is no small thing and I feel really blessed to have met so many amazing people through my course, societies, sports and just random things.

  3. You can do a degree in History and still like it by the end: I know many people who have done maths or something related and who’ve finished their degree unable to imagine doing any more study. Yet, after doing 3 years of History, I still feel as interested and excited by the subject as I was when I first got here, if not more so! It really is a subject where you can continue to find enjoyment no matter how long you spend delving into it.

  4. Student houses can be great: Sure, they might be a little grotty most of them and not as nice as back home but if you can find good people to live with it makes all the difference. I’ve been fortunate to live with great people both years off-campus and it has always been the best cure to homesickness.

  5. University is what you make of it: there are a millions of opportunities out there to do all kinds of things, explore all kinds of things, meet all kinds of people and the limit is essentially up to you. Sure, time and sleep are also factors but there is still so much you can fit in and discover if you’re open and willing to go for it!

  6. University has been the best 3 years of my life so far: the next stage of my life has a tough act to follow.

  7. None of this would have been possible without God: I had a fairly rough few years before coming to Uni but ever since I got here, I have known blessing after blessing. I know that everything from the location, the people, my course, accommodation and opportunities have been a gift from God and I am incredibly grateful to have had Him alongside me, helping me when it was easy and when it was hard. Knowing Jesus truly is the only way to live life to the full and I know I couldn’t have done it without Him.

Those are some of my thoughts, feel free to post below if you have any questions about anything to do with Warwick 🙂


I’m sad to leave, but as I said in my first ever post here, sadness is a good sign because it means it has been a good three years.
