Social Life

  • DUBS x Prague

    As I’ve mentioned in a few of my previous blog posts, there’s a lot more to university life than just studying and exams. University societies are a big part of this. Dundee University Business Society (DUBS) decided to start the new year with a bang and arranged the trip of a life time to the […]

  • Organised Life, Organised Mind

    Is there anything worse than a million things to do, no idea where to start and being so stressed with uni you just sit watching netflix and doing NONE of it! For me no, I am a bit of an organisational freak if I’m being honest and get so unmotivated when I have no idea […]

  • Keeping your sanity whilst living in halls

    Halls can be quite an isolating experience, despite being surrounded by other students ‘in the same boat’. We all go through various struggles but hopefully these tips will help you stay sane in halls! Get into a routine with uni work. By this I mean, if you’re like me and don’t have many contact hours, […]

  • DUBS x DULS x CLIC Sargent

    Who doesn’t love a pub quiz? The perfect way to socialise, show people how clever you are and maybe even win a prize. And a good excuse to get out the library too. The other great thing about a pub quiz is that it’s an excellent way to raise money for charity. With that in […]

  • Why I Joined the History Society

    I was introduced to the History Society at a Humanities open day I’d been to before uni started, in which the student ambassadors told us about some trips the society had organised and what else the society gets up to (such as pub quizzes and the history ball). It sounded like exactly what I needed, […]

  • Bargain Adventures

    As someone who tries to travel as much as I can, having a budget is integral. I also ignore it a lot, but that’s a separate issue. I was lucky enough to grow up in a fairly transient household, so the idea of moving around is high on my list of priorities, but with the […]

  • Day in the Life: Follow the Fresher

    7.30am. My alarm goes off, and compared to the 4am wake-up from yesterday to go for a sunrise surf (there were no waves, but top marks for dedication right?) this is a very calm start of the day. The rising sun turns my room orange. I get up to make porridge with blueberries and eat […]

  • Dundee University Archery Club

    If you’ve ever wanted to embrace your inner Robin Hood or ‘shoot for your own hand’ in true Merida style, the Dundee University Archery Society may be the place for you. Training is usually on Thursdays at 19:30-21:30 and Saturdays at 15:00-17:300 in the ISE. Abilities range from beginner to experienced and you can learn to […]

  • A day in the life of a Singaporean! – All Scots Weekend 2017!!

    So now that we are in early November, it was time for another Singaporean meetup this time organised by the UKSSC (United Kingdom Singaporean Student Council) and supported by our very own Dundee University Singaporean Society (DUSG). The event was a great success and both societies received praises from so many different sources. All of […]

  • European Adventures (Down Memory Lane)

    One of the great appeals of studying in the UK is the ability to make budget trips to Europe. During my second year, my cousin sister and I made a short whirlwind tour of Europe to London, Paris and Venice. It was the first time I had organised a holiday on my own and needless […]
