Hook, line and sinker: The very best of our April Fools nibbles

From Sussex to Belfast, Newcastle to Aberystwyth, students across the land have been more than willing to share their opinions about this year’s fake stories

Nottingham

Having reported that Nottingham City Transport had increased the price of bus fares £2, doubling it’s price, students took to the comments section to voice their outrage.

Avril Feul had this student tramboozled.

Pure disbelief.

Pure disbelief.

Birmingham

Meanwhile, just a few miles down the road, students at Birmingham were getting ready to say their teary goodbyes to club night ‘Fab n Fresh’ whilst an investigation took place into alleged copulations.

Our most sincere condolances

Little bit personal…

Brookes

At Oxford Brookes, students were lighting up the twittersphere in reaction to news that the JHB building was to be shut due to structural integrity. Oh no!

Short and sweet

Short and sweet

Manchester

A cry of rejoice echoed through Manchester this morning as students learned Fallowfield’s biggest eyesore, the OP tower, was set to be bulldozed. Others were sad to see the love/hate relationship come to an end.

Bristol

News filtered in of developments in Bristol where it was suggested non-arts students would be denied entry to the ASS Library, with decision to recruit nightclub bouncers described as an ‘underhand technique’.

Appreciation

Newcastle

The Toon’s notorious Fem Soc threatened with close CCTV, Newcastle’s famous SU night, earlier this year – but now they’ve actually managed it (or at least some people think they have).

OUTRAGE

Exeter

At Exeter students were revelling in the opportunity to share their views about the proposed closure of the ‘ledge’ on the third floor of Timepiece.

That moment of realisation

King’s College London

The prestigious KCL prepares to merge with London South Bank Uni, officially England’s worst poly, in anti-snobbery shocker. But spare a thought for KCL’s English Department:

Oxford

Briefly returning to Oxford, in a move that will change the face of crewdating in Oxford forever, Arzoo’s and Big Bang have reportedly unveiled plans for a 400-seater ‘crewdate hub’ at Oxford Castle.

Liverpool

It’s the home of the Scousers so it’s only right they teach a degree in it. Liverpool’s poly, JMU, have decided to offer up a ‘Scouse Studies’ degree with modules on ‘Ancient Rivalries – tracing the two leading Liverpool football club’s history of conflict and glory’ and ‘scouse songs’.

Let’s go for it girlies!

Belfast

Across the seas in Belfast, reports suggested that the C.S. Lewis reading room was to be scrapped and renamed the ‘Christine Bleakley Speaking Room’. The praise couldn’t come in quick enough…

Edinburgh

It’s censorship gone mad in Edinburgh – first Blurred Lines was banned, and now EUSA have banned everyone’s favourite night, Big Cheese, thanks to misogynistic song lyrics.

Norwich

Students at Norwich responded to the claim that The Square would be renamed ‘The Oblong’.

Unfortunately not...

Unfortunately not…

Sussex

Sussex reported that a student had forgotten her name after taking MDMA alternative, NaNa. Thanks to Rihanna for that one.

It’s almost like the penny was dropping in low gravity…

Imperial

Imperial nailed April Fools when they listed their Rector’s house on Zoopla as a way to solve the critical student housing problem at the university. Five people applied to view the property.

Leeds

The Tab in Leeds told their readers that the university would be organising pre-exam screenings for drugs like Ritalin and Modafinil. Predictably over-reactions were everywhere.
