Hi everyone my name is Mel I am now a second year at the University of Warwick…wow how time flies! I chose to study at Warwick because of the amazing opportunities available at this university, as well as the reputation for its teaching within the Sociology department. I fell in the love with the subject during my years at college, as I found the ability to analyse the structures and subcultures of society compelling. In addition, I was captured by the variety of modules available for study. Now in my second year I can’t wait for the new opportunities and challenges it will bring!
My other interests besides Sociology are drama and sport. I have always been a part of theatre groups and my passion for drama will continue throughout my university experience which is why I am so glad that there are a number of different dramatics societies that I can be a part of on campus. I thoroughly enjoy being active which is why I engage in sports such as netball and running, however having attended the open day at the university and seeing the never ending list of different sports clubs held on campus, I know I will definitely be able to try something new. Who knows?
I also have an undying love for films, if I am not at home watching a movie, I will probably be at the cinema watching one there instead. But no movie is complete until you have acquired mounds of food to go with it (another love in my life).
My blog is going to be about my experiences living here on campus as well as keeping you all updated on the must go to events so that if you are accepted at university you’ll know which ones are the most popular. I will also keep you informed about my progress on the Sociology course and the interesting topics that I will study. If you have any questions about university whether you are a student or not just email me and I will be happy to answer any queries you may have.
