- Hi, Kunal
I think most people here would agree that if you *really* like your
sleep, during term-time anyway, then architecture isn't the course for you.
After speaking to the other chaps on my course, pretty much everyone
spent every day over the Christmas "holiday" working into the early hours.

architecture students know how to play hard too :)
Despite the long hours and hard work, I can't imagine doing anything
else. Most students would agree, I think.

All the best,

I have some of the best friends in the architecture dept because we
spend so much time together in studio as well as other classes. And
even if you don't know anyone, they will become your closest
Hope this helps, but doesn't scare you away! Architecture is a lot
of fun, if you make it fun. Just think... what other major are you
allowed to build models, render drawings (either on the computer or
by hand), play with k'nex(at least we do...)?
