Hi! I’m Lauren, and hopefully this blog will give you an idea of what it is like to be a student-athlete at Loughborough University. I currently play netball for Loughborough Lightning and England Netball, and I am in my fourth year of university, about to complete my degree in Sport and Exercise Science. It is […]
March at Loughborough signifies one thing- the end of term!! Not that I’m happy to leave Luffs for a month, but everyone was looking forward to some time off. While writing this I only have a few days left of the Easter break so I’m wondering where all that time went; although I am really […]
March was a non-stop month in the Loughborough bubble full of coursework deadlines, student ambassador commitments and most importantly the Loughborough Dance Competition, but first lets get the academics out of the way. I had my formative coursework assignments due this term and after many library visits and help from the trusty thesaurus, I finally […]
It is 3:00am; I am cuddled up in a blanket at 33,000 feet. I am sunburnt and tired, though most importantly, I am incredibly happy.

However, due to the recent Brussels bombing and attacks which happened couple weeks ago, this trip was cancelled. At first, I was […]

But I’m going to go for the typical cliché explanation “you need good time management skills”, which unfortunately you can’t buy on eBay (sorry). However, the support available here at […]
In my first year, I very rarely ventured beyond the University campus. I was living with my new friends in the student village, I had all my lectures on campus, I ordered my food online and the majority of nights out were at the Student Union.
As many of you may soon be choosing your first choice and insurance university, I’ll start this off with why I chose Loughborough.
February was an extremely busy month for me in terms of being a part of the AU Dance team but with that came an immense amount of excitement as we had our annual dance show fast approaching! After numerous rehearsals and quite a lot of sweaty hours later, the weekend of Valentines Day we were […]
