Engineering can feel like ‘all work and no play’ so try be friendly with everybody and get involved clubs and socs. Especially the EngSoc(Engineering Society) as this will be your main event provider for the year. Join study groups to stay focused. Classes tend to be close and once you go on internships together you’ll be best mates. There are a lot of empty classrooms in the building so head here for study instead of the cramp library. Engineers can be mad craic though-2017 saw several 2nd Years wade across the Engineering Lake on their way to Res after a night out. Bet Campus Services missed that one!
As a handy tip: get a locker in engineering; they are the biggest on campus and you won’t have to go far if you want to leave your stuff overnight etc. Ideal for hockey players and GAA heads.
