Student Societies

  • 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 […]

  • Semester One: That’s a wrap!

    When I was told third year would be the year that everything was pushed up a gear, I didn’t entirely believe it. I knew that now, more than any time before, things started to count, but I didn’t really feel the heat at first; my classes and coursework were staggered in a way in which […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • MacLaren on a Munro

    You know that feeling when the mountains are calling and you want to get up at 5 on a Saturday morning to scramble up the side of a mountain through the bog and freeze your fingers off while eating lunch sitting on some frozen stone? No? Just me then? Mountains are magical. I realise they’re […]

  • 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 […]

  • Edinburgh & Photography

    I recently took a trip with the photography society here at Dundee (DUPS) to Edinburgh – what a whirlwind. I think I saw more in two days than some people get to see in a lifetime of living in Edinburgh, but that just be because people who live in a place think they have all […]

  • Diwali @ Dundee

      It all started with a phone call!   It was a regular Tuesday. I had finished my lectures and somehow fell asleep at 6 PM. Perhaps, I was just too tired. And then, that really annoying thing happened. We’ve all experienced it. It doesn’t make it any less annoying. My phone started ringing.   I […]
