Making friends and social life

  • Bath- A Night Club Tour

    Now alcohol and clubbing really aren’t for everyone. I have plenty of friends at uni who’d much rather opt for a night in, and that’s fine. But pretty much every time I told someone that I was going to Bath...

  • A Social life: having one and funding it!

  • The importance of living it up and having a social life (even if you're a master’s student)

    As soppy and gushy as it sounds, university is a fantastic place to find out who you really are. It’s somewhere to learn to love your own virtues and quirks and it’s brilliant for working out what floats your boat,...

  • 'Tis the season to be jolly in Bath

    I know some people will not accept this statement until December 25th but in Bath, Christmas has arrived! The city has become even more beautiful since the festivities begun. It all started with the Christmas light switch on which I...

  • Freshers' Week 2015

    I have been welcomed ashore by the University of Bath! Freshers’ Week 2015 has been and gone and we are slowly starting to recover from freshers’ flu (yes it’s a thing!)  By the end of the week I was running...
