My Warwick Bucket List
Happy Easter! I hope you’re enjoying your break so far.
We have a few weeks yet until Term 3 kicks off, but it’s starting to dawn on me that this will be my final term at Warwick. Everyone says uni flies by, and the past couple of years have certainly made for a unique university experience. But I really can’t wrap my head around the fact that my time at Warwick is coming to an end! With this in mind, I’ve been thinking about the things I want to make sure I do before I throw my graduation cap in the air. Of course, I have plenty of essays, exams, and deadlines to keep me busy in the next couple of months, but it’s important that I make time for some light relief too. So, here are a few things on my Warwick bucket list:
Graduation and Sports Balls
For the first time in 3 years, Warwick’s Graduation and Sports Balls are going ahead! Most of us current students haven’t ever attended these, but we’ve been assured they’re highlights of the Warwick experience. If you’re graduating, the ball is a great way to celebrate with your classmates. Equally, the Sports Ball is a chance to get dressed up (as opposed to your usual sports attire) for a lovely night.
A lot of sports clubs and societies run summer sports events in Term 3. I’m really looking forward to playing rounders with my friends on sunny days! Term time is usually so busy, so fun summer activities like this are a great way to unwind and spend time with friends. Keep an eye on Facebook events and Instagram posts to see when these are happening.
Every Wednesday during term time, there is a food market on the piazza. There are loads of food trucks, covering every cuisine you can imagine! I’ve tried a few and can safely say they make for a great lunch, but want to make sure I try more in the next few weeks. When the weather is getting better, I think a lunchtime spent enjoying some great food on the piazza steps with friends is a lunchtime well spent.
Campus Walking Trails
We’re lucky to have such a green campus, but I recently realised that this was something I had not taken advantage of. We have walking routes running through some of the prettiest spots on campus, like Bluebell and Tocil Woods. I haven’t tried any of these walks yet, but think it will make for a nice study break one afternoon before term ends.
A bit of an obvious one, but I’m really looking forward to the graduation ceremony. This year will mark the first on-time graduations since 2019, so our year group is pretty lucky to be the first in 3 years to have this normal routine. I hope it will be a lovely end to my time at Warwick. I’m looking forward to spending the day with my family and friends, posing for a few pictures, and celebrating all our hard work.
Whether or not you’re graduating this year, I hope this has given you some ideas of things you might like to do in Term 3. And take it from a wise old Third Year — it flies by!
