    23 Things All BCU Students Have Definitely Done

    You tripped over the skaters at Millennium Point at least once.

    1. During freshers' week you made your flatmate take a photo of you with the bull.

    2. Then you went to the freshers' fair for the cheap food and freebies.

    3. But somehow you ended up signed to Amnesia Tuesday updates.

    4. To feel in the loop with your flatmates, you joined the Facebook group for your uni accommodation.

    5. Only to find out about the magical land of Curzon Gateway.

    6. The Broad Street themed nights where the highlight of Birmingham's nightlife and you did all of them.

    7. But you always seemed to end the night lost in Gatecrasher.

    8. Where you ended up meeting a boy/girl from a rival uni.

    9. But a night out was never complete without fearing for your life as you walked through Digbeth with 999 on speed dial.

    10. When lectures began, you got to experience the wait for the lifts in Millennium Point.

    11. But after a few weeks you became a pro at tailgating.

    12. You risked your life crossing the road to the Curzon Building.

    13. And once in the building, you always seemed to end up lost.

    14. You always attempted to find a free computer the day before deadlines.

    15. And you complained when Moodle went down because of over-capacity.

    @BCU_IT_HELP Any ideas when Moodle will be running again? It won't let me log on due to 'technical issues'

    Even though it happened every deadline day.

    16. But when you weren't snowed under with assignments you got to visit The Custard Factory, The Mailbox, and The Library of Birmingham.

    17. And the Bullring was your favourite place to shop.

    18. You thought you'd got used to the Birmingham crowds but then the German market would arrive and you'd want to cry.

    19. You regularly complained to anyone who would listen that the centre doesn't have a big supermarket.

    20. But at least there was always Eat4Less for dinner.

    21. And for dessert, a £1 bowl of fruit to share amongst your flatmates.

    22. When it was time to go home, you had to take the dreaded walk to Grand Central.

    23. But whether you stayed or left, the city still brings out all kinds of emotions.
