19 Things you’ll only relate to if you’re a student at UET Lahore
1- You miss Extension and Lalazar
You miss the extension waly burgers and fries and the chai from lalazar but you secretly thank the university admins for closing it for after all Ab extension ni ae to class b ly k dekh lety aen.
2-School of Architecture & design and IB&M are the only places with a “University like environment”
Admit it or not but guys and girls from all the departments secretly wish to be students of these departments because Yaar archi aur IBM walon ki life bht chill ae.
The road leading to C-hall, Ayesha hall and Khadeeja hall also known as Jannat road because all these hostels are girls’ hostels. Girls from Zohra hall are unfortunately exempted from this sort of privilege. These places are a hub for boys with baes betwee 8:30 and 9 PM.
4-Summers are incomplete without Panga
Panga is probably the only thing that UETians can brag about because UET is the only university to offer such a Thing. You even walk all the way towards annexe under the burning sky to have a glass of panga because Pangay k liay ab itna to kia ja skta ae
5-There’s no such thing as “BSSC”
I’ve even heard some random girl saying that boys call it BSSC out of total jealousy as they don’t have a gathering place solely for boys. So the correct name of the “place in front of IB&M” is SSC.
P.s GSSC wala privilege sirf girls ko hasil ae
6- Stadium is your favourite birthday celebration spot
UET stadium, recently renamed as Junaid Jamshaid stadium (due to the fact of JJ being an alumnus of UET), is always your go to spot at birthdays because it’s the only place where you can be an animal and throw eggs and cake on the birthday girl/boy.
7-Secret wall isn’t that secret anymore
If you haven’t visited secret wall yet, make sure to visit it by the end of this year or you might not find any place to inscribe your name.
P.s Beware of Sastay Ashiqs
CRP students can relate to this term more than any other UETian. The water cooler of architecture department is also known as the source of “Aab-e-shabab.’’
So next time when you hear someone saying, “Chl aja aab-e-shabab peenay chlty hain” don’t freak out. It’s just a random visit to the ‘’iconic’’ water cooler of Architecture department.
9-Campus is deserted after 9 PM
Even though boys hostels close after 12 AM, you’ll see very few of them roaming on the roads of the campus. The obvious reason for this is “Yaar 9 bjy k baad university main koi raunaq e ni hoti!” (Girls hostels close at 9 PM)
10-Random shouting and slogans are common
The sound of “Dam pukhty pukhty pukhty… patakkay thaaaa… patakkay thaaa” is no strange to your ears.
11-Road on graves
The National Library of Engineering Sciences and the road surrounding it from two sides, are built on graves.
Pakhtoons? Afghans? Africans? You’ll find them all in UET. UET has a diverse culture because of a huge number of students from overseas and remote areas of Pakistan.
13-You know you’ve got the best VC in town
UETians are proud of having a VC who is supportive, hard-working and active. Dr. Fazal Ahmed Khalid is known for his active response towards complaints and suggestions.
Moreover, the VC himself replies to all the emails sent by the students. UETians can proudly say Dhund k dikhao esa VC kahin sy.
14-No matter how fast the internet in hostels is, we’re never satisfied
As long as the internet isn’t accessible on our phones or we can’t use torrent to download movies, we won’t be satisfied. Jb phone py internet ni provide kr skty to itni speed ka achar dalyn kia? Torrent nahi chlta, esy internet ka kia faida?
15-There’s an obvious difference between hostelites and day-scholars
Day scholars are always on time for the class and get dressed up for university unlike the hostelites who are always late for the classes and are perfect examples of “Yaar bistar sy nikl
k direct class main e aye aen.”
16-UET has its own Bangladesh
Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering department aka IME is also considered the Bangladesh of UET due to the fact that it is situated on the road across the university.
17-Library is for accessing Wi-Fi not books
National Library of Engineering Sciences is a hub of people looking for free internet instead
of free books.
18-UC is your go to place for lunch
If you’ve ever eaten at UC Abbas bhai ek extra spicy shawarma is not something strange to
your ears. You always visit UC because Pizza guzaray laiq hai.
19-Hmary pas auditorium hai
UET might not have many buildings as beautiful as other institutes like GCU, NCA or LUMS so Auditorium is the only option that everyone resorts to when boasting about UET.
So every UETian wants to say this to a non-UETian that cut us some slack and stop saying
“Yaar UET walon k pas bs auditorium hi to hai.’’.
