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. Food waste is harder to combat though; there isn’t a handy gadget you can buy, and the food we eat is often precious, something that we don’t want to sacrifice or change. But even as students, with a lifestyle that is often far from focused on the long term, there’s still lots we can do to cut our food waste.

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.

Dissertation stress

Dissertation stress

Tuesday 8 May 2018Student Journalists

If you’re a finalist at university, you’ll now be finding yourself in some of the most important weeks of your degree. The dissertation is due, there might be looming exams you should be revising for, there’s a chance you’re still meant to somehow be going to your seminars … the list of pressures just goes on and on. Time is running away from you and a moment spent not working feels like a heinous waste of time. It’s absolutely no surprise that final year students are stressed.

My experience with disability at university

My experience with disability at university

Friday 27 April 2018Student Journalists

Starting university is a huge life adjustment for everyone. It’s daunting to start a whole new life in a strange place. Hopefully, by the end of your first year, you’ll be able to look back and be proud of how far you’ve come, your new-found independence and friends. Of course, that’s easier said than done. Even more so when you have disability.
