Paul’s photo guide to Loughborough Students’ Union

Loughborough Students’ Union (LSU) has had one of the biggest impacts on my student experience, though during my first few days at university I didn’t fully understand it. So using only pictures I have taken over the past couple of years, I want to explain a little about it.

A Sunny September in Oz

Hi all, so it’s September and that means Australia is getting warmer (not complaining)! It honestly seems like yesterday I arrived in Perth, but I’ve been here for two months now, which is the longest holiday ever. It’s genuinely like a completely new world. I can’t express how much it feels like I’ve just borrowed […]

Surviving the first week…

Imagine a dream holiday on a tropic island. You have been building up to this for months, you are eventually en route. You expect the boat to pull up alongside the island. The captain to lower the ramp and for you to easily stroll into the dream world.

Shake your bucket all for RAG RAG RAG

In my freshers year of 2013, Loughborough received nationwide attention for a cover of Naughty Boy’s “La La La”. The awfully-brilliant parody, performed by LSU Exec (the Student Union’s committee), was brought into the nation’s consciousness by Scott Mills on Radio 1.

Graduation

This is the big moment, three years in the working. There is a sea of proud families to my left, while my geography peers surround me. The weight of my academic gown weighs down on my shoulders as I listen for the cue to start walking across the stage.

Fifteen hundred metres

Back in my awkward adolescent years, the 1500m was my athletic event of choice. I was okay, but never fantastic; I enjoyed, but never loved, and eventually drifted away from the sport.

How to make yourself more employable

So its summer and I’m expecting most of you will be reading this because A) you’re looking for a summer job, B) thinking about life after university, or C) because your ‘dream job’ turned out not so great.
