  • Best things about living in Dundee

    If you’re new here or if you’re considering coming to Dundee, I’m here to tell you that Dundee is the perfect city to live in as a student, and here’s why: As a predominantly student city, it’s really safe as you’re surrounded by students from both universities. Both campuses are safe and big enough for […]

  • Varsity and Conference Cup Finals

    Throughout the academic year, I’ve been playing for DUWFC, otherwise known as Dundee University Women’s Football Club. On Wednesday 14th March we played against Abertay for Varsity alongside all the other sports teams of both universities, and on Wednesday 21st March we played against Abertay again in the Conference Cup Final in St Andrews! Sadly, […]

  • History Society Ball 2018

    Tuesday 13th March 2018 was the History Society’s Annual Ball at Apex Hotel in Dundee! I had such a fab night and I’m certain everyone else did too. I thought I’d write a blog post about it for everyone who is considering attending a ball or to encourage you all to get involved in societies […]

  • Am Stubborn, Will Travel

    Let’s avoid homework, it’s more fun when due dates arrive. In December, I was lucky enough to have an old friend call me up and tell me to get my butt to Brussels.  Did I? You bet.  The farther away from highschool you get, the more you lose touch with people, but you get to […]

  • My favourite places to eat and drink in Dundee

    As I’ve lived in Dundee for 6 months now, I’d love to share some of my favourite places to eat and drink here! There are plenty of different places to eat and drink, all with different price ranges, which is very handy for us students who often have to stick to a budget but maybe […]

  • Just Love_Dundee

    Taking a break from my normal blogging style, I thought I shall do some promotion for a worthy new society which has just formed in our University – Just Love Dundee. I do not know how many of you have heard about this group, but I would like to start with some background to what […]

  • The ULTIMATE foodie guide to Dundee.

    I’m unashamedly a self-confessed foodie.  I love trying out new eateries and researching recipes. As far as I’m concerned there’s nothing that a hearty meal (or a late-night Dominos) can’t fix, and it’s even better when it looks so good its Instagram worthy. We’ve all been guilty of taking a quick snap of a particularly […]

  • Paris

    The adventures that start along the line of “let’s make a bad decision” usually end up as the best stories. Have you had those adventures? You need at least one. Start by taking a last minute trip, one you didn’t see coming – could be to anywhere. Down the street, next town over, next city, […]

  • Feed Me

    If someone ever tells you that food is boring, slowly walk away. They can sense fear. Dundee offers a lot of different cuisine, but it’s taken me some adventuring around to find the stuff I really liked. When you move to a new country, it’s always the food that can make or break your experiences, […]

  • My favourite event on campus!

    Holi is by far one of my favourite festivals. Think of it as a massive colour run, with loud music, dancing and just good fun.  Holi is the Indian Festival of Colour, celebrating spring, love and the triumph of good. Linked to multiple stories of Indian mythology, it’s steeped in culture and tradition. Of course, […]
