Around Dundee

  • Happy Easter!

    Hey there, Welcome to a new blog post! I have never really been too fond of this time of year as it has always been either the build up to exams, the last leg of the school year or the holidays are never quite as exciting as Summer. This is especially key to me as […]

  • WEEKEND X CRIEFF

  • Time to Empty the Toy Box

Hope and thirteen others took to the streets adorned with paper […]

  • Pictish Stones

  • LAW BALL X 2017

    HELLO! With dissertation hand-in only a week away, I’ve decided to #tbt to happier times: DULS 2017 Law Ball. A few weeks ago Dundee University Law Society’s hosted its Annual Law Ball.
