How to save money as a student!

First off, I hope exams went swimmingly for all that took them. The geology department here at Leicester had a two week exam spell where all 1-3rd year students took them. Least to say over that time it was rather… tense. However, our ‘SB room’ (common room) has still got the brown paper up to […]

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2017!

My apologies for inactivity on the geology blog, Christmas seems to creep up behind you and suddenly before you know it, it’s already here. As always, the presents I have bought are still to be wrapped and the wrapping paper is still in its packet! I guess that’s due to exam prep for January and […]

**A New Project!!! **

Do you want to inspire others into loving your favourite subject? Do you enjoy working as part of a team? If so… Have you ever considered teaching as a career? I certainly have.   My goal began during our careers talk day during the spring semester of my first year here. Like everybody else, I […]

A Gold Presidency!

We all know what happened this morning. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter… it all lit up. Everybody knows that Trump has won the election in the US. To be honest, I wasn’t surprised. More over, I know very little about the parties in America and politics over there. So, without evidence I cannot say I agree or […]

Safe, Healthy and Happy *smile*

Hi guys! Hope you’re all well! The nights are drawing in now and the clocks went black this weekend! (I forgot as per usual!) and consequently a long day at uni means you go in when its just getting light and when you leave its going dark (and its not even reached 4pm!) It can […]

The middle of first semester!

Whether you believe it or not we are actually getting close to being in the middle of the second semester, time at uni goes so ridiculously faster don’t you think! ¬†When I think back, this time last year was quite a relaxed semester, with mineralogy being the hardest topic of the freshers year in geology. […]

***Lectures and note taking!***

Hello! Hope you are all well and finding uni life exciting! The start of a new term is always nice, especially since it’s October! October is great, not just because it was my birthday last week – I turned 20 which seems crazy! But just because Autumn is beautiful. I love walking across Victoria Park […]

Alert! New Academic Year Approaching!

Hello all! I hope you’re enjoying your final week of the holidays before the madness of freshers dawns upon us! I thought whilst I was here, contemplating my new time table, I’d tell you what I found useful when preparing for my first few lectures at uni.   Each lecturer has their own unique style […]

An exciting start to Second Year!

An exciting start to Second Year!

One of the things that drew me to study Geology¬†are the plentiful opportunities it provides to travel. My start to second year began on the 9th September when we travelled to Almeria, Spain for a week. This blog will briefly document my trip. Unfortunately, I have far too much to say, but I’ll try and […]

Roll up! Roll up! Welcome to Leicester!

Congratulations if you’ve just received your A2 exam results and you’re heading here, to the University of Leicester! You’re about to embark on a wonderful time, and if you’re doing your degree in Geology – welcome to the department!   I think my first thoughts on university were a very mixed bag of emotions. I […]
