  • University Open Day Tips

    At the end of the month I’ll be helping out in my first open day of 2019 and I can’t wait! I’ve been helping out as a history ambassador for almost a year now and I love it. The best part is definitely meeting the prospective students and their families, and being able to help […]

  • Making a difference, actually.

    Ecology is a topic that got a lot of coverage last week. Unfortunately, many of the talks were fundamentally broken, again. Like when people go demonstrate into the local downtown with vague banners like “BAN ALL FOSSIL FUELS NOW.” – It is no different than to demonstrate with slogans such as “Stop organized crime by […]

  • Being President of a Society

Some people are stressed, others anxious. Some people don’t even get stressed! But one thing we all have in common is that our minds, and bodies, […]

  • Halloween 2018

    Halloween is one of the most anticipated night for students. In Dundee, DUSA holds their annual Halloween party. This year it’s on a Wednesday. However, there is most than DUSA for the student; with clubs hosting rival parties. Dressing up is clearly what makes Halloween. With several fancy dress shops and multiple parcels arriving the […]
