The University of Glamorgan
Was were I chose to spend
Three years of full time studying
And Partying until the end

A course in Theatre and media
With a hint of writing too
Three years of prancing round a stage
That's what I chose to do

Since I joined the uni in 2001
Facilities have dramatically improved
We now have 4 rehearsal spaces
And plenty of rehearsing to do!

Teaching standards at Glamorgan
Are parallel with the best
12 Subjects rated Excellent
And Award given to some of the rest

Parking is a major problem
You have to get there before the rush
Or risk being late for lectures
Or just simply catch a bus!

The uni's Based in Treforrest
A small, but pub filled place
And Cardiff's only a Train ride away
If your one for the rat race

Personally I prefer the hills around
For walking, picnicking and driving
And there's a lovely pub just up the hill
Whenever you feel like skiving!

There's clubs galore at society day
All wanting you to go
From comic clubs to Sporting clubs
From the supernatural to Judo

There's a library for studying
A Union for partying
A Sports hall for sporting in
And IT rooms galore for typing in

Accommodation’s all around
Student properties are close by
Just make sure you rent with people you like
And start looking before July

On site accommodation’s also not that bad
You'll share a kitchen with 2 - 10
But it's all on a hill, so remember that
When you stumble back from the union

So to come and have a visit
Just drive down the M4
Pay your 4.50 for the severn Bridge
And drive a little more

Reach the junction 32
The A470
Follow the signs to the University of Glamorgan
And stop at mine for tea!

I found myself in a real quandary rating this - not assisted by the fact that my internet connection crashed (being broadband this doesn't happen very often) - the poem is innovative and very good and covers some of the facts about the place, and in a more appropriate category, say the Ciao Cafe, would definitely have got a VH or possibly an 'E' (I have a great admiration for people who can put things like this together) but not convinced it is the best way to produce a consumer review to help people make a decision on whether Glamorgan is for them.
