Knowledge share

Barbara and Daniel are both from Mexico and met on their very first day right here at the University of York. Academia brought them together, Daniel explains, “I’m a lawyer so Barbara would ask me questions about law, and she is a psychologist and researcher, so I would ask her questions about methodology. We quickly became best friends.”

Library love

Their favourite place on campus was the University of York Library and they both have fond memories of studying there together.

We asked them, What do you miss most about your time at the University of York? Barbara says “The library! I loved being surrounded by the books and the feeling of companionship with people from all over the world” and Daniel agreed, “I’d have to say the library, too! It really became our second home”
