It is commonly agreed that education takes form in both the studentâ€™s academic and social experiences. Whether it comes from listening to the lyrics of Pink Floyd or from the inspired thoughts of Mark Twain, it is understood that the insight and understanding that can be achieved in a learning environment such as university is comparable to none. With UK educational institutions under heavy financial stress, higher education is more valuable than ever.

Friendship is a key component to university lifestyle. Like the Taoist Yin-Yang, friendships peform a dual role during university. They can be dynamic forces that will cause trouble while providing support simultaneously. In this piece, Amy Moran & me are used as model examples of a friendship stretching over 6 years- stressing the sheer importance of our university experience together. Friends help each other grow, keep each other safe and enjoy each others company.
There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded. -Mark Twain Fadi Dada B.A. & David Little B.A Keele Graduation 2009/10
One of the special things about the unversity experience, is the number of opportunities and achievements that are provided for students every day. Whether you are a student society committee member, a student academic representative, or whether you just take pride in your work; University has it all. Student activities have long been important factors, but as the job climate gets ever more difficult they become even more crucial.
By mutual confidence and mutual aid - great deeds are done, and great discoveries made -Homer
Discovering Keele Lakeside Autumn at Keele
Keele Campus represents the studentâ€™s experience of discovery perfectly. These discoveries range from the many historical and hidden landmarks, such as the hidden amphitheatre, the gothic Keele Hall, the underground tunnels and even the way the seasons drastically change the campus appearance. The real whirlwind of discovery that develops during university life occurs as a result of rapid personal growth.
Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn. -C.S. Lewis

The Student Experience is the cumulation of all of the elements I have identified throughout this feature. We learn to enhance our experience and we educate ourselves inadvertently every day with our many friendships and discoveries just as much as during our academic endeavours. Everyday, students experience new sensations not all of which are necessarily enjoyable and with every experience we build ourselves into who we will become.
