June 21, 2011
I've been at Warwick for a fair few years now. I took my three-year undergraduate degree here, then returned for my master's degree after a year out. I'm now almost a year into my PhD, having begun immediately following the completion of my master's.
As a sociable sort, I've therefore been involved in numerous studenty activities for many years. I joined a number of student union societies back in 2005 and remain fairly involved in two of them to this day. I increasingly get the impression that I'm seen as a venerable elder from days of yore (or perhaps simply an old fogey) by the many undergraduates who populate these groups: an experience that has got me thinking about divisions that occur between postgraduate and undergraduate students.
