  • Dealing with Loneliness at Uni

    For something that almost every student will experience whilst at university, loneliness is not something that students generally talk about. I would love to break the stigma and get people talking about what makes them feel lonely at university and ways to prevent the feeling from becoming overwhelming. So, yes, this post is a bit […]

  • The importance of the customer experience

      If like me, you are brand loyal and tend to buy from the same brands.  usually go for one brand (or another), depending on the price, student discount, the ease of the website and the customer service. When I find a brand or shop I like I tend to stick to it, for ease […]

  • What Happens In Halls…

    I can’t believe I’m about to start my third year at Dundee and therefore it has been two years since I moved into Belmont Flats! I, like many other freshers, spent my first year at uni living in halls and I thought it would be interesting to share some of my experiences and other stories […]

  • My Favourite Things I’m Involved in at Uni!

    As it’s almost the end of my second year and third year is when everything gets real, I thought now would be a nice time to reflect on some of the things I’ve been involved in at uni and what I love about them! They aren’t in any particular order but I would strongly recommend […]
