Student Life

  • 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 […]

  • Preparing to Study

    It’s that time in the academic year when, if you have any exams this semester like I do, you’ll be thinking of your revision preparation sometime soon. I thought I’d share some of my revision and general study tips for this reason! If you’re lucky enough to not have any exams this semester, hopefully you’ll […]

For some of us, it’s not enveloping circumstances, rather battling our own personal demons. Over the last few years as I’ve […]

  • From Struggles to Happiness

    Self-reflection on challenges, riding bikes, living the dream.

  • Manmade Marvels

    Scotland contributed to the world some groundbreaking inventions. Watt’s steam engine, telephone, pedal bicycle, and television, to name a few. There are some grand engineering achievements here too, few of which we visited with the photographic society today.

  • Annual Ball Season

    It’s that time of year again when the invites start flying out for Annual Ball celebrations! If you aren’t at university yet, or if you’re in first year, you might not be fully aware of what an Annual Ball includes, so it would make sense to clarify that first! Annual Balls are usually organised by […]
