Are you going to take a gap year?
Glasgow’s a university with a liberal, cosmopolitan feel and these days inhabitants are desperate to convince anyone who’ll listen that Glasgae is the real Scottish city worth visiting rather than fusty old Edinburgh. The old industrial town is transformed with parks, cinemas and art galleries. The same can't be said for the weather, which varies slightly from showers to heavy rain to heavier rain. ...more detail That said, almost half the students are locals who liked the city and tolerated it's weather enough to stay put and given the impressive pubbing, clubbing and live music on offer, who’s arguing?...more on entertainment The University has a proud reputation, churning out inventors and politicians aplenty plus swoonsome actor Gerard Butler. Books aplenty may have boffins cheering, but IT facilities get a subdued ‘huh’ in comparison, especially the lack of 24-hr access...more on academic Students fare a bit better with halls, which vary from passable to plush and unsavoury to en-suite...more on housing With twelve bars over Glasgow’s multiple SUs, a plethora of societies and more newspapers than you can lob at a paperboy, the students are an active bunch...more on the SU Glasgow's role as hosts for the 2014 Commonwealth games means sports facilities should expand and Glasgow University is regularly in the uni sports top twenty...more on sports
Woohoo: Promise of spanking new sports facilities after the Commonwealth games in 2014
Boohoo: Dodgy student dens in some areas of the city

Been to this university?
Duchenne muscular dystrophy is fatal. There is no cure. Children are losing the ability to walk, hug, eat, draw, play and breathe every day.
Please take a second to sign this petition. Whilst DMD is fatal, a new (and safe!) drug could finally offer a treatment! Children will continue to die and children will continue to lose their ability to walk if this decision continues to be postponed.
If you would like more information before signing the petition please see this short blog post from a dad whose son has DMD:
or any of these beautiful videos about DMD:
(the 9th video is 32 seconds long for those who are interested but would rather not watch the longer 3-5 minute videos!)
