Essex Yearbook 2017


SCROLL DOWN

Essex Yearbook 2017


What is this?

This is the second annual Essex SU Yearbook.

It's a collection of the most important things from 2017 as voted for by Essex students voted. And by important, we mean things like the best TV show, hashtag and Campus Cat pose.

Right at the end there's a video that includes (nearly) all of the photos you uploaded for us - see if you can spot yourself. 

To get things started here's a playlist of what you voted as your favourite songs of the year, so you can listen to this in the background. If you're not an Ed Sheeran fan, you might need to skip a few tracks.

Campus


Campus


What is Essex's favourite pose from campus cat?

This is was pretty conclusive. And who doesn't want to see a cat spread-eagle in front of a door you probably want to use.

Summer relaxation everyone...


ESSEX'S absolute favourite square is...

Obviously it's 3. It's where all the best stuff happens. And every Thursday it comes alive with people queuing for stuff, how very British.

We asked for a comment from Square 3, but it's an inanimate object, so it didn't reply.


ESSEX'S favourite place to eat on campus is..

We aren't sure if you guys meant to hurt our feelings like this, or if someone rubbed out your votes because you wrote them in pencil, but you voted for Fusion. We can only imagine that some of you forgot that Frango's exists?

ESSEX'S FAVOURITE event of the year...

Derby Day. Despite the fact we didn't quite bring the trophy home this year, it was still our favourite event.

PS UEA suck.


ESSEX'S Favourite SU market stall is...

This seems like an easy choice - everyone loves the bread (cakes) stall.

Pretty much all of the food stalls at the market were our favourites. The Free Ranger. Or the Sausage stall. Or the Curry stall. Or the noodle stall. 

ESSEX'S favourite place to get caffeine is...

Starbucks in the SU Bar. We're not surprised. Who doesn't love gigantic coffees. We get all the buzz we need from analysing the results of quizzes. We aren't sure what we are going to do for the rest of the year...
