How to support an artist for free

How to support an artist for free

Wednesday 20 June 2018Student Journalists

If you’re anything like me, you’ll often find yourself staring longingly at the Etsy store or Kickstarter project of a small artist and wishing you were able to financially support them. You love their work, you’ve been following them on social media for what feels like forever, but there’s no way you can afford the cost of independently manufactured merchandise, as beautiful as it is.

Free your life of food waste

Free your life of food waste

Wednesday 20 June 2018Student Journalists

The urge to go waste-free – or at least significantly reduce our individual waste – has now gone mainstream. Everyone has a bamboo toothbrush or a trendy reusable water bottle, coffee shops are encouraging us to ditch paper cups, and more and more of us are saying no to plastic straws.

If you’re part of ninety-something percent, here’s why you should consider joining the cycling movement.

Student voice on Brexit

Student voice on Brexit

Thursday 17 May 2018Student Journalists

With a nationwide student campaign on Brexit reported last week, in the national media it appears the EU Referendum is still at the forefront of student politics. Yet on campuses, it doesn’t necessarily seem like such a priority; issues like BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, usually in relation to Israel) and free speech are far more dominant than Brexit in debate and conversation. Brexit is the punchline of jokes and another reason to hate older generations, an unstoppable force that we tried – but failed – to stop two years ago and will now be forced to accept.
