2. A smoothie from Unio is the best motivation to get up for a 9am lecture.

3. It took you ages to work out what LCR stands for.

4. Pimp My Barrow is the best day on the uni calendar.

5. Closely followed by Derby Day.

Too bad Essex Uni - better luck next year. (Lol, who are you kidding?)

6. Outsiders say campus is ugly, but any true UEA student knows it has a certain charm.
