Being a student can be an amazing adventure. If you’re lucky you get a bunch of great new friends and you might even have moved to a new city. You are probably living away from home for the first time ...
Introduction from the IRL print edition of the SNACK Student Guide 2019/20.
If you’re reading this in September then you’re probably at an advanced stage of exhaustion from binning fliers for that 90p vodka place in town. Did you go? 90p vodkas are fun, right?
When we started planning the guide, we decided that as we’re only doing one of these a year, we wanted to create something that you might find useful enough to keep and refer to in the weeks and months to come. We wanted to put together a guide to living as a student in central Scotland (and Dundee) that had longevity, one which would be just as useful in March as it is in September. You can only go so long with the 90p drinks before it all gets a bit old. You’ll need something else to do, or maybe not.
So, here it is. We’ve highlighted our favourite cosy bars for sheltering through the winter months; the beer gardens that only really come alive again at the tail end of spring; the cinemas, art galleries and museums that we love and couldn’t do without; the indispensable local cafes that fuel our days and the gig spaces where we keep on discovering our new favourite bands.
We hope you enjoy.
As for the rest, I’m sure you’ll find your way around.
