My name is Fiona, yes, like in Shrek, I am 21 years old and in my fourth year of a German Studies degree. After an eventful year abroad in Hannover working as an English language assistant in a college for adults, I am back to enjoy my final year at Warwick. I am a Scot, hailing from the bonnie countryside near a little village called Roslin which you may have heard of if you’re a fan of The Da Vinci Code or else enjoy the charming gravy-like drink that is Bovril. Studying at Warwick has allowed me to meet a whole range of people and try out sports and societies which I would never have been able to do in my local area. For example, learning how to waltz with the Latin and Ballroom dance club, twizzle away with Ice-Skating Society, and organise trips to Germany for fellow students as former President of German Society. I represent my coursemates on the German department Student Staff Liaison Committee, because I think it’s important to allow student voices to be heard, particularly my own since I do love the sound of it. In all seriousness however, I decided to blog because after arriving at Warwick it occurred to me I had done very little research about what life on campus was actually like, in terms of what to expect in new accommodation with new flatmates, and new coursemates and new buildings and new societies and new deadlines and new shelving arrangements in the new Tesco. Where would I find friends? Where is the library lecture room? Does this Tesco have a reduced bread section? Reduced bread is in the middle of the bread section, funnily enough.
