A letter to 17 year old me

I realise you are worrying about the future, you always have. Right now you have got some pretty big things on your mind, A­levels, UCAS, University, even your sexuality. You can’t ignore them. But you will get through it.

Revision season

Hello everyone! I hope you are working hard on your assignments and enjoying the weather as it is becoming warmer and summer is around the corner. For us university students, this time of the year is busy as many deadlines are approaching, as well as final exams, which will be happening very soon.

Life beyond lectures

The exam period is here and it’s easy to forget what’s going on elsewhere. Loughborough offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, from societies and sports clubs to volunteering.

Giving things a tri

During April, the uncertain weather wreaked havoc upon the fashion scene of Loughborough. Glorious sunshine clashed with furry winter coats and flurries of snow mercilessly-attacked flip-flopped toes.

Being a student-athlete at Loughborough

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 […]

I had my formative coursework assignments due this term and after many library visits and help from the trusty thesaurus, I finally […]

Loughborough Geography heads to New York

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. It seems the geography field trip to New York has been quite an adventure – exploring, learning and enjoying. With us (sleeping students) dominating half of the plane I was […]

Looking back to Freshers

On Thursday 26th September 2013, fuelled by nervous excitement, I entered my new flat (Telford Hall, 1D, ground floor) around midday, ready and eager to meet my new flatmates. I opened the door to a deadly silence – no one was there. I was the first, the keeno, but never mind I told myself, I’d […]

Exploring Bradgate Park

If you remember my last month post, I promised you all an exciting installment from Brussels since I was going on a field trip with my course-mates to the ‘headquarter’ of European Union. However, due to the recent Brussels bombing and attacks which happened couple weeks ago, this trip was cancelled. At first, I was […]
