• 2017-review so far

    We’re closing up on April, and the end of my Dundee-exchange is just around the corner (okay, it’s still 4 months away, but time flies. After getting this great idea from Courtney (read her post here) I decided to take a look at my year so far.   January 9.-16. After a lovely Christmas back […]

  • Time to Empty the Toy Box

    I believe university is a wonderful place to explore new ideas and challenge existing ones and my friend Hope Carolan, a DJCAD student, did exactly that recently by initiating a gathering outside of Caird Hall for the support of the UN conference for nuclear disarmament. Hope and thirteen others took to the streets adorned with paper […]

  • Pictish Stones

    If like me, you’re an ancient history nerd, it’ll come as good news that Dundee and its surrounding area is home to many ancient sites, and here are just a few of them! Martin’s Stone Martin’s Stone is a 6th Century Pictish stone that can be found in a field near Bridgefoot in Angus. I […]

  • The Dundee Dragon

    “Tempted at Pitempton, Draigled at Baldragon, Stricken at Strathmartin, And kill’d at Martin’s Stane.” Dundee is a city of dragons. It may not seem so, after all we are not known as “Dundee – The Misty Mountain” but rather “One City, Many Discoveries” – a tagline adopted from the historic ship in our silvery waters. […]

  • Volunteering in Dundee

    Hi there! In freshers week last September, I met different representatives for volunteer centers in Dundee at the Campus Green outside of DUSA. Right away I felt like I wouldn’t have the time for volunteer work this year and told myself I would get back to it later. As we know time flies, I felt […]

  • Team MSc Sustainability

    MSc Sustainability is made up of five and a half students. The half being a part-timer. It’s a small size, but I can, in fact, tell you it is a big reason why I love this unique program. Almost all our courses are taken together and, perhaps because of that, we have developed lasting friendships. […]

  • Dundonian Small Talk

    We’ve all experienced the eventual bane of any fresher, which is the seemingly endless strain of introductions made during fresher’s week. By the first class of the semester, you will have your entire life’s history and degree details poised on the tip of your tongue, so why not spice up this period somewhat and apply some […]

  • To The Archives!

    On Monday evening my book history and publishing class took a trip to the University archives, located in the basement of Tower Building on campus.  This was actually my first ever visit to the archives, although I know other subjects make much better use of the facilities offered there.  I, for one, definitely wish I […]

  • Love Your Mug

This is a new and exciting adventure on the University of Dundee campus which transitions from the use of disposable tea and coffee cups to reusable mugs. MSc Sustainability students, in collaboration with DUSA and […]

  • #IWD2017

    Happy International Women’s Day!  Today is all about celebrating diverse, inspirational, opinionated, talented and all-round amazing women- as well as hopefully encouraging people to get involved in the Feminist movement (in whatever way that may be). I thought it would be appropriate to write a post on why Dundee, and UoD, is a great place […]
