Student Profile: Arta Crossman – BSc in Psychology
Why did you choose Bangor?
I love living right by the countryside. I wanted to go to a university that was sustainable, that had lots of societies and things to do! The university also resembles Hogwarts!
The best thing about my course are the lecturers. They all interact with the students on a one-to-one basis and have helped me with any issues I've faced.
Clubs and societies
I am the Chair of the Craft Society! I've always enjoyed making things and being creative, and being at Bangor University has allowed me to organize craft workshops for other students to enjoy on a weekly basis. I also help organize a Volunteering Project called the Tea Party, where we throw giant Tea Parties for elderly people in the area with loads of activities and basically just give back to the community. I've also been a regular member of the Vegan and Vegetarian Society and love all the free food they provide.
Bangor is a pretty small city, but I love that. All my friends are less than a 15-minute walk away and it barely takes any time getting a weekly shop, because there are supermarkets dotted all over the town. This makes it feel quite homely and safe.
