Student accommodation – Home away from home

I’ll admit, I was initially concerned that the convenience of on-campus accommodation would mean less effort being invested in the rooms available to first-years. However, whilst apprehensive, I wanted to give Courts a go and now I dread having to leave this summer. Living with five new people was in some ways more daunting than beginning…

Graduation: 1 year on

Today marks exactly one year since I graduated from the University of Lincoln, in what can only be described as one of the most special days of my life. For many lucky students, this week will be their turn to robe up, walk through the castle grounds, and exit their time as a student with…

Preparing for your move into Junxion

Junxion is by far the best of all the student accommodations (there is a chance I’m biased). It is closer to uni than many of the halls, right opposite the library and in perfect view of the student union bar and nightclub – this is useful for spotting any spare seats outside when it’s hot, and keeping…

It’s not too long until you’ll be moving into your new flat or house, some of you for the first time, so here are a few things I picked up from my first year living in student accommodation. 1 – YOU WILL MEET A WHOLE LOT OF NEW PEOPLE, NOT ONLY YOUR FLATMATES Get used to walking…

My unconventional journey to university

I came to university at the age of 24 – a good 6 years after most of the other freshers I was surrounded by. But, I had a number of reasons for not having to come to university sooner and I want to share them with you. One of the biggest factors at play was…

Graduate show experience

12th May 2017 – University of Lincoln BA Hons Fashion Show The best part of doing a design-based degree is, in my opinion, seeing your work come to life and witness people’s reactions to it. At The University of Lincoln, we are lucky enough to have the opportunity to showcase our final collections as part…

Lincoln Award

The Lincoln Award recognises the additional activities students take throughout their time at the University. I found out about the Lincoln Award when my lecturers encouraged us to participate and discovered more information by going to the get ahead drop down menu on the Students’ Union website – where there’s detailed information on what it includes…

Hello nature!

Living in a city centre can be great as a student, especially when the university campus is only minutes from the high street. Having everything on your doorstep and in walking distance is very convenient and prevents poor students having to shell out loads on public transport. We are particularly lucky as we get to…

Painting Lincoln every colour!

As anyone who knows me will be aware – I don’t run. If you see me running it probably means there’s something coming so I’d advise you to run too! Yet somehow, I find myself sat in my kitchen having just finished my first 5-kilometre Colour Run. By ‘first’ I mean – I did not practise…

Coffee delights

Some time ago, a friend told me to check out a place called Coffee Aroma, in her opinion the best place to—you guessed it—get coffee here in Lincoln, or to enjoy a relaxed music night, or just hang out. Probably lured there by the smell of freshly ground coffee and the prospect of being able…
