This one is mostly for the Freshers who will be joining us in September! I present to you the Aber Bucket List: Things you must do before your first year is over. (Or rather things you might like to do. No pressure!)

  • Go on a night out in a onesie: There is nothing quite like dancing to heavy techno whilst dressed like a toddler.
  • Stay up all night and watch the sun coming up from the top of Consti. The world is amazing and you will feel like the only person left in it for a few brief moments.
  • Go star gazing at the Castle Ruins. Pick a clear night and you will see everything.
  • Order £300 worth of Pizza from Dominos and only pay thirty quid for it. Be cunning with your Freshers’ vouchers.
  • Have a Death Star in The Cambrian: Words cannot describe this drink. It will ruin you.
  • Go to an Open Mic night at Rummers. Some seriously good local musicians for free! (And have a go yourself if you feel so inclined.)
  • Jump in the sea with your clothes on. (Everyone does it. Just maybe not in January or during a storm? Stay safe guys.)
  • Attempt to eat: The Hulk Burger from Lord Beechings and The Big Breakfast from the Station Cafe. (Not on the same day!) You’re young, you have your whole lives ahead of you to burn off the calories.
  • Spend all night in Yokos, Pier and The Angel and toddle home as it is getting light.
  • Go to the War Memorial and pay your respects. Some of the guys on there were the same age as you and were students at the University. They gave their today for your tomorrow.
  • Pull an all nighter in Rosser Lounge (especially if you are doing Interpol!)
  • University is the only time after your fifth birthday where it is acceptable to go out dressed as your favourite superhero in the day time. DO NOT waste this opportunity.
  • Walk to Borth by the coast path.
  • Take a train to Dovey Junction. (For no other reason than you can!)
  • Take the Funicular Railway up Consti, stand in the front, you will feel like a Bond Villain.
  • Have an Ice Cream Milkshake from Sophie’s. (They make almost everything better.)
  • Chocolate & Churros from Ultracomida (’nuff said.)
  • Have a bonfire on the Beach. (Attempt to make a sandcastle as well.)
