Who doesn’t love finding money? I found a ten pence piece the other day and felt over the moon! But at the same time, if I were to lose ten pence I don’t think I’d notice; the person whose ten pence I found obviously didn’t. So when I opened a paper today and was asked to donate £2 a month to “Give water. Give life” I was pretty shocked. Water is something we take for granted. We complain because too much of it falls and makes our rivers overflow, and …

A shocking article in the Daily Mail (dated 5th December 2009) reports of a number of Durex condoms provided by Cambridge University Student Union found to have been pin-pricked, rendering them useless.

However, this worrying incidence does remind us of the potential risks of ‘a …

With the cold weather not shifting, designers and celebrities are finding a new way to look glam and in fashion whilst braving the outdoors. This new craze brings the fun and playfulness back to fashion.
The best thing about pom poms is that they are inexpensive and quick to make… with kits on Amazon starting from £3.00. Alternatively use a cardboard template, made from an old cereal box, and a ball of wool from your mums sewing box and add to old hats, ends of scarves and coat strings to update …
It is widely recognised that students are renowned for their financial strife, and the vast majority leave university with debts ranging up to £17,500. Although it is safe to say that most students have part time jobs in retail outlets, various bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants, a shocking number of female students in particular, are resorting to much more drastic measures to make ends meet whilst studying.
I spoke to one student from Canterbury who was willing to share the harsh reality of what some female students are prepared to do …
It’s February and its cold, but a picnic is by no way out of the question. Pack some baked potatoes – remember to wrap in tinfoil- and a bottle of wine (it’ll certainly stay chilled!) and pick the perfect sunset spot to scoff.

Embrace the winter weather, but do so inside! Clever Canterbury has created the indoor synthetic ice …

As we navigated our way through Strada’s extensive array of food stuffs, we were pleasantly surprised with the unique dishes on offer compared to other Italian chains such as Zizzi, Prezzo, and Cafe Uno, etc, whose menus tend to be fairly similar, covering all the Britalian faves of chicken caeser salad, lasagne, spag bol… Strada’s courses just seemed a little more devoted to cultural authenticity.

The experiences of an International Student who made Canterbury Christ Church her home:
For many, regardless of gender, age or nationality, starting University means moving to a brand new stage in life. However, doing it abroad is an even greater challenge to one’s self-confidence and beliefs. Surprisingly though, looking back in time, for me it was exactly this that made my time as a fresher even sweeter.
Although coming to CCCU straight in year 3 after transferring from my previous University in Bulgaria, as a fresher, I went through the same uncertainties …
