Comments from the wishing tree

Every year at our Live on the Lawn event we ask our students to tell us why they love our University and add them to the wishing tree, here are some of their comments.

"Aberdeen University my home, my life. Being here made me feel that I can be anything I want I can walk in confidence in everything Aberdeen University wants me to be. I love Aberdeen University."

"This is the first year I have been there - but the beautiful landscape and open atmosphere in the university always appealing to me. I love this place in here and the friends I make, the knowledge I have learnt will be a great fortune to me! I will treasure the precious time! I love here. I love you.

"In every class you can meet people from all around the world and I think that’s so amazing. I think it is also the amazing variety of extracurricular activities you have offer.
