Everything I needed to know about life, I learned at Uni...

So, it's that time of year where some of our young shrewsbury folk are heading out of town for university. As a former university goer myself I learned that uni' is less about what you learn in your text book, but more about what you learn about life and yourself. So, I'd like to pass on some things that, with a little help from my friends, I learned along the way.
