Diversity Win! Obama is about to become Ed Uni’s fourth EVER Black Student!
EDINBURGH – The Edinburgh student population was buzzing today with news that President Obama isn’t just visiting the city, but is doing so in preparation for next year, when he will be joining thousands of other undergrads. The former president will be only the fourth ever black student to matriculate at Edinburgh, a statistic that the university insists shows their commitment to diversity and widening access.
A EUSA representative was thrilled, saying: “This just shows our commitment to taking students from all walks of life, whatever their background, skin colour, or number of countries they bombed. EUSA has done amazing work in widening access, and it’s finally beginning to show.”
Obama, who is understood to be taking joint honours in Art History and Celtic Studies, will be touring the campus, smashing pints at the Library Bar, hanging on the meadows taps aff and joining revellers for a night at the Big Cheese that commentators predict will be ‘mental’, and even bigger than the time two members of Five turned up.
