Maybe you have just moved into student accommodation, or know someone who has. Either way, you might want to pay attention to some pretty startling news about fire hazards in Halls of Residence.
Here is one drug addiction that is very much under the radar, but so common in the average student diet. Sugar. Very few of us really understand the damage that excessive consumption can do to our bodies, and the part they play in weight gain. Now we are at University we have the freedom to eat what we want, we could easily fall victim to one of the most highly addictive drugs.
It’s the end of term, you are beginning to pack up your essentials (don’t forget the Christmas jumper!) to drive, bus or train it back home for some family time. If you can’t afford a Christmas roast dinner with your housemates why not do something fun but still just as festive? It will provide a great opportunity to bond with your housemates and have a nice warm cosy evening in full of films and laughs about what you’ll be getting up to over the Christmas holidays.
Thinking of going away this summer with your friends? Organising a holiday at any age can be difficult, as people have different preferences and tastes – but for students, the big issue is their budget. Some don’t even bother trying to find a holiday as they think it’s far too expensive or it’s too difficult to find somewhere everyone wants to go. However, after the stress of end of year exams and deadlines, we have just as much right as anyone else to a well deserved holiday!
Hallelujah! We made it through the dreaded month that is January, usually full of rainy, cold weather and exams, revision and lots of stress. So now that it’s over, you (well, some of you) might feel all that hard work should be rewarded.
