It’s time to find out, which 2019 meme is your uni?
Who has the most woman yelling at cat energy?
We all love memes. Memes are lovely. And this year it seems as though everything has become a meme. A woman screaming during an argument is a meme, a man walking into court is a meme, us raiding a highly classified US air base became a meme. So why not universities too??? Unis make great memes.
So not that anyone asked for this, but here are which memes UK universities would be if they were in fact, memes. Don’t question it. Just read it.
ABERDEEN – FISH TUBE
You wish there was a fish tube for you to get around when you want to visit friends from home. Imagine that? Flying straight from Aberdeen to home in an instant, you can but dream.
BELFAST – FIXING THINGS WITH INSTANT RAMEN
When that car got stuck in the Holylands, there was only one hope: ramen.
BIRMINGHAM – ME EXPLAINING TO MY MUM
When you head back home having picked up a West Midlands twang and your mum has absolutely no clue what’s going on.
BOURNEMOUTH – HOT GIRL SUMMER
It’s always sunny in Bournemouth. Another day, another trip to the stunning beaches followed by a cocktail and Instagram sesh in Aruba. Get it girls x
BRISTOL – SOPHIE TURNER JUULING
Not dissimilar from Bristol students juuling in the Lakota smoking area.
BROOKES – SPIDERMAN LOOKING AT HIMSELF
Brookes students are fit, but they all look the same. Being in Bridge on a Monday is like being in a house of mirrors, but all the mirrors are showing fit, white, blonde people in Joni jeans and signet rings.
CARDIFF – WOMAN YELLING AT CAT
Cardiff students’ lives are essentially the woman yelling at cat meme. It’s them when they’re yelling at the YOLO bouncers asking why they’re letting in Met students to a WEDNESDAY night. It’s the girls in the Revs smoking area, it’s the nation as a whole when it starts raining for the 27th day straight. It’s when you get denied the right to vote because of an admin error x
CAMBRIDGE – IMAGINE HOW TIRED WE ARE
All mid-tier unis: “Omg I’m so exhausted and stressed from my 1,600 literature review. The deadline is in late January and I’m running out of time”.
Cambridge: “Imagine how tired we are”.
COVENTRY – IGHT IMMA HEAD OUT
This is the first thing you say when you get to Cov and see the mass of mouldy concrete, and it becomes the most regularly used phrase throughout your whole degree. Largely because so much batshit stuff happens at Cov that you’d never see anywhere else: fights in the library, rats all over the city, crime everywhere. But when you do finally “head out” of Cov, the first thing you want to say is “Ight I’mma head back in”.
DURHAM – GONNA TELL MY KIDS
Because you’re gonna tell your kids your degree is from Oxbridge. Obviously.
EDINBURGH – BABY YODA
You’re all just up there, in lovely wholesome Edi drinking whisky in lovely pubs, wearing cashmere roll-necks, listening to the bagpipes and minding your own business. Just adorable.
EXETER – VSCO GIRL
Exeter students are basic, and they know it. And you know what? They own it. Like they’ve all owned the VSCO Girl look. You can’t step onto campus without seeing surfer girls in crop tops clutching onto their Hydroflasks, wearing Converse with scrunchies in their hair.
HULL – SCOPA TUU MANAA
Friend: “I’m going to University of Hull”.
KING’S – INTERNATIONAL SPONGEBOB
King’s has a large international student population and honestly, I would go as far to say they are the best dressed on campus nationally.
LEEDS – SHAKING MANNEQUIN HEAD
Everybody in Beaverworks at 2am.
LIVERPOOL – RIHANNA’S BIRTHDAY
You will never see a girl at Liverpool wearing the same outfit twice. They’re just like Rihanna. Go to the date of your birthday on a Liverpool girl’s insta to find your birthday outfit. Endless fun.
UCL – TOUGH GUY WALKING INTO A ROOM
This is every UCL student when they get on the Northern line and try to gauge if there’s a seat. There never is.
LANCASTER – PAUL RUDD ‘LOOK AT US WHO’D HAVE THOUGHT’
Lancaster when they end up in the top 10 of the uni league tables again.
LOUGHBOROUGH – POWERFUL SHAGGY
Everyone here is powerful, ok?
MANCHESTER – AREA 51
The kind of stupid shit Manchester students talk about at 4am after a night out at Warehouse Project. Come 7am they will literally be running round Fallowfield Saino’s saying “they can’t stop us all”.
NEWCASTLE – AND I OOP-
What Newcastle students say after they accidentally drop £200 on coke and a bottle of vodka after another night out in Swingers.
NOTTINGHAM – CHARACTER MAKEOVER TIKTOK
Nottingham students when they come back to uni from reading week and take on a whole new personality.
OXFORD – I’M AT CAPACITY
After debating, Piers Gav ball, three essays a week, rowing practice and MNB, they are quite literally at capacity – you cannot make them do any more.
ROYAL HOLLOWAY – DRINKING KOMBUCHA
Me trying to work out whether I hate living in Egham or not.
SHEFFIELD – RIIIIIIISE AND SHIIIIINEEEEE
What a Sheffield club sounds like if you cut the music when everyone’s belting Mr Brightside.
SOTON – AH SHIT HERE WE GO AGAIN
Soton students are all about getting a 2:1 and having a good time. Jesters, Sobar, Oceana, Parfait, Switch, Oceana, Parfait – the routine never gets boring and come Sunday night you’re in bed with a Charcoal Grill thinking “ah shit, here we go again”.
SUSSEX – GAY RAT WEDDING
You know why.
ST ANDREWS – WHERE Y’ALL SITTING
Everyone at St Andrews has a clique. Where you are in hierarchy at St Andrews is everything. You’re either in with the royals or you’re out.
WARWICK – GIRL LOOKING UP AND DOWN
Thinking you applied to a prestigious uni and then looking at the headlines. YIKES!!!!
YORK – OK BOOMER
For the lack of fun that’s being had at this university, you would think it’s full of nothing but old boomers.
