Martlet story submission — university mistakes

Campus News

Come September, the Martlet will be publishing its annual Back-to-School issue. Traditionally, we provide helpful advice in an effort to tell people what to do in university. This year, though, we want to tell people what not to do.

Do you have a horror story from university that could stop someone from making the same mistake? Did you drunk email a professor? Show up in full Spider-Man garb to a non-costume Halloween party? Fall asleep in Creative Being and woke up in Physics 453?

Send in your best university mistake stories (under 500 words, please) to for a chance to be anonymously featured in our September issue. Your stories will be read by first-years and other university students and your embarrassing / hilarious experiences will have a positive effect (hopefully). Successful entries will also be awarded a Martlet prize pack.
