Keele Moves Up the Sunday Times’ League Table (hooray!)
As I wrote this article, I felt a tear come to my eye. A happy tear, a proud tear. I feel like an ecstatic parent that just saw their child riding a bike for the first time on their own. It’s a swelling of my heart, and I’m either dying or just very happy.
We’ve had the fantastic recent news that Keele has moved up on the Sunday Times’ University League Table from 42nd place in 2011 to an outstanding 29th place in 2012.
I’ve honestly never been so proud to be a Keeleite.
I always did appreciate the quirks that Keele had- the amazing forest, the comfortable library and the short walk from Horwood Hall to all my classes. But this year, with the remodelled union, the new concourse, my new course and my deepened involvement with the school, I’ve found that Keele is definitely the best place I could be. My newfound love for Keele has only be re-affirmed by the fact that it’s worked so hard to make itself better as well, not just to be higher up on the League Table, but to be better for the students that cherish it so much.
And while many people still ask me and many other students where the bloody hell Keele is, we know where it is- right in our hearts. It’s also somewhere in Staffordshire, but that’s not as poetic. Over the course of the past year, I discovered Keele to be not just my university, but also a place I can call home. So, fellow Keeleites, love our squirrels, our new campus, wear the hoodies and scarves with pride and Love:Keele.
