Appreciating Arts degrees: yes, they are important!

As an arts student, I have frequently heard the false assumptions and ill-informed opinions a lot (in fact, too many!) people have, over what this kind of degree entails. ‘You’ll never get a graduate job with that degree, certainly not one with a decent starting salary!’, ‘8 contact hours?! Do you actually do any work?’ and ‘Essays! Pfttt, I could write an essay in my sleep and do well, the assignments we have in Maths are on a completely different level to be honest’ are all comments I’ve heard since…

Don’t sweat the small stuff: your second year house doesn’t have to be perfect

Black tepid water swirls around my ankles, spiders flee before me and a dark gloom hangs over the place. Have I accidentally fallen into the Chamber of Secrets? No, I’m trying to make myself a piece of toast and a brew in our new student accommodation. As a second year, I was beyond excited to come back to student life after the longest summer ever. When I moved into our house in Leamington, so many things started to go wrong. We discovered a spider infestation in the bathroom, one of…

Things I’ve learnt so far as a Warwick student

Before my first year at university, I’d been lead to believe that Warwick is an edgy/urban-looking version of Oxbridge.

Firstly, the uni isn’t actually in Warwick, so at some point you’ll have to get the bus. If you want to get to somewhere on time you should probably set off about 2 hours early because you can’t rely on the buses here at all. Also, unless…

#FreshersReflection: “Freshers was the definition of work hard but play harder for me”

My first year of university was all about stepping out of my comfort zone. During the year, I experienced many first-time experiences. For example, it was the first time I was all alone in halls with eleven others, it was the first time I had hitchhiked as I took part in Warwick Jailbreak, it was the first time I experience a hangover, it was the first time I took part in a musical production and it gave me the chance to volunteer abroad for the first ever time too. As…

The Big Decision

Tonight was the night of the ‘Big Decision’. The candidates, campaigners and supporters were all present to find out their fate. The first sabbatical position announced was the Postgraduate officer. It was no surprise when Nat Panda was announced to have won. Despite being uncontested, it was noted how admirable his endless campaigning efforts were. Next up we had the Sports officer. Ted Crowson took victory over fellow candidate Cecilia. After that, the Societies officer was elected. Fierce competition was seen in this category as figures were very close but…
