My 20th birthday – this time last year – was one that will last long in the memory. The day before (May 22nd), myself and 8 friends jumped out of a plane from 15,000 feet, landing on a glorious beach in Jurien Bay. The day itself (May 23rd), I spent with ten chaps on a […]

Exams at Loughborough explained

Bit of an advance warning, this won’t be the most exciting blog entry you’ve ever read. The last month or so has been exam and revision central for everyone at Loughborough. I’ve had 4 exams so far, with one left in a few days of writing this; struggling for motivation but looking forward to being […]

My last ever exam

I sit and my heart races. In fact, the hearts of those who surround me, sat at identically shaped, spaced and painted desks, are also probably racing. The synchronized clocks tick together, while the senior invigilators echos the word which I have now learnt to memory over the past 3 years out of the speaker system. Welcome to […]

How to deal with stress

The start of university for me was very much like coursework, revision, coursework, revision, and then as a break I’d probably treat myself to some coursework… You know, just for a change. Well yeh I kind of made it hard for myself, just a little bit…. I worked long hours, no breaks. There was a […]

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.

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 […]

Loughborough really does walk on water

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 […]

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 […]

The ways I study at Loughborough

You may wonder how students manage to have both a social life, sleep and uphold their degree (I have no idea how we do it).  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 […]
