Fun, Fit and Festive: How to stay healthy during the holidays

With the arrival of the festive period, most of us are not short of opportunities to relax, celebrate and have fun. This leaves many of us facing the dilemma of how to stay healthy, whilst still making the most of the holidays. A lack of sleep and the abundance of treats around certainly means that many of us face difficulties in maintaining our usual standard of health, having to later compensate by adopting fad diets and short-lived exercise regimes come New Year’s Day… However, this doesn’t have to be the…

Fashion Fluidity

It’s not often we delve into the world of fashion here on ‘The Vocal Hub’, however, with the creation of our new sections I thought I’d get the ball rolling. This article was inspired by a shopping trip in Birmingham. Every shop I walked past seemed to be sporting the same dusty pink backdrop with some athleisurewear thrown in. I didn’t think much about this, apart from envy that no matter how hard I try I would never be able to pull off a pale pink bomber jacket paired with…

Gap Year Experiences

As I sit here putting off checking though my long essays, I can’t help but envy those people who decided to take a gap year. When I was at sixth form, taking a gap year wasn’t even a consideration for me, I didn’t think I could afford it, I was too scared to have to go through the University application alone and, to be honest, I just wanted to be doing what all my friends were doing and that was going straight off to University. I sometimes think this unconsidered…

‘Ich Bin Ein Berliner’

It was 2am on Saturday morning when my alarm went off. As Taylor was shaking if off, I was putting on my HistSoc Berlin hoodie (which I still haven’t taken off as a side note) and trying to make myself look half presentable. It was Berlin day. A group of 44 of us got on the coach and headed to Gatwick. Excited, hungry and bloody knackered we boarded the plane and less than 2 hours later touched down in Berlin. In typical tourist fashion, my bum bag and Instagram filters…

Left and Wrong?

Last night I was reporting on Warwick’s new Vice-Chancellors first Question and Answer session. There were many topics that particularly stood out to me, so expect to see lots of articles coming up in the next few weeks discussing them. Despite the fact I certainly didn’t agree with everything Stuart Croft was saying to us, at least he was saying it to us. One topic that I thought was especially relevant at the moment was the idea of Free Speech and Academic Debate. Recently I have seen various articles and…

Is your Degree getting the Third Degree? Comment 

Is your Degree getting the Third Degree?

This week on The Vocal Hub we were chatting about an all too common subject for students around the country. It seems that, once going through the pressures of choosing a University, your choice of course under scrutiny by friends, family and in fact anyone who you speak to, you then have to deal with your degree choice getting the third degree. ‘What are you studying?’ ‘History.’ ‘Oh… I always knew you’d make a good teacher.’ This is an outright lie. I would make an awful teacher. It then shocks…
