The Most Terrifying Things For Cambridge Students (to try and dress up as for your bop tonight)
Halloween is creeping round the corner and with bops galore we’ve compiled a list of the scariest (and most Cambridge) Halloween costumes to strike fear into the hearts of even the boldest Cambridge students.
Tweed jacket, bad stubble and an X-Ray glare, this living nightmare haunts your supervisions and now he can haunt your nights out as well.
Chavvy, muscley, tattooed and with a semi-shaved eyebrow. Infinitely cooler than you. Sorry.
A 9am Lecture
Why delay the horror of the inevitable? I’m not really sure how you’d dress up as this beyond getting a Sidgwick Site sign as a sandwich board, but it’s still the scariest thing you can think of.
3am in Cindies
You know that moment when the lights come on and you suddenly see the face of that guy you’ve been grafting all night? Yeah, that. But as a Halloween costume.
(I’m joking, these guys are the least of your problems...)
Cambridge Union Membership
You paid the £200 in Freshers Week and insisted it would be worth it. You’ve only been to one event since then and it was Stephen Fry talking for 20 minutes. Think of how many VKs you could’ve got for £200 (120 on Jelly Baby at Cindies)
The question ‘What are you going to do after graduation?’
The London cesspit we’ll all end up in, regardless of which degree we do. You might have big dreams now, but ten years down the line you’ll be grateful for that internship you took on your gap year because they’ll be the only place that’ll pay you.
The University of Oxford
If there’s one thing that makes Cambridge students’ knees tremble and has them running for the fens it’s the Other Place. Could you dress as the dreaming spires and terrify little freshers? Yes. Please take pictures.
I’d rather be at Oxford than St John’s. Enough said.
We know what it’s like; you longed to come back to Cambridge to your independent, student lifestyle, but you can't bear the thought of uni and having to look after yourself again. You just can't win. Read more...
