Fun on the Amphitheatre

Well, what lovely weather we are having at the moment! So in a glee, hop and a skip students have been heading down to the University of Bradford’s Amphitheater (seen here on the right had side)

Students traditionally have always enjoyed a BBQ, camp-fire and playing football, cricket or other sports during the day. It’s one of the only places that really brings students together in the summer around the University.

Students from all backgrounds, students from all departments, students from everywhere, come together and its a great feeling when hundreds of students can be seen interacting together.

However in the last year or so, the security have increasingly begun to “crack down” on student activity in this space. As the usual policy of gentrification, and also control, the kind of BBQ, the size of the flames, the materials burnt are now monitored.

This hap hazard control (its not regular) has gone to cause problems for students.

When students get attacked, raped and mugged on campus it’s interesting to see were security’s focus is. The University of Bradford – Student focused or image focused as always getting it the wrong way around.
