Favourite place or thing to do in Bolton?

''To be honest I think my friends and even lecturers would say the library at the University is my favourite place because it is. It is a well relaxing environment and I can spend time to think and assimilate well. I literally spend most of my time there.

As for my social I like the museum and the shopping mall is where I also spend my spare time.''

Is there anything that you wished you knew before you started? 

''I wished I knew there would be so many opportunities and involvement both in the University and outside it.

I wished I knew that lecturers would always be welcoming. I used to think lecturers would be so distant and not interested in student welfare and that people would be hostile at Uni. Bolton has changed that mindset and I have the most loving and hardworking lecturers ever they always have a listening ears and thier availablity is incredible.''
