Hey Crix =) Hope you like it over here! I came over for uni too. (I looked at Stirling but decided on Glasgow) I finished first year, withdrew, became a resident, now they're paying my tutition and I'm back again! sometimes it feels like I'm never gonna get finished with Uni! Stirling's lovely, but to get some real student feel you'll definitely need to come into Glasgow sometime, check out the student unions and clubs here. I also hear Edinburgh's a great place to go out, but I haven't really tried. =) Only thing I've really done in Stirling is the tourist thing. I think I've actually been through that one castle at least 5 times!! It's beautiful there, you're going to love it. Are you starting in the fall?
