A weekend away: Conversations that Matter

  Friday The email I received has instructed me to be in the Chaplaincy common room at 4pm, in order to catch a lift to Antrim, where the weekend’s events will transpire; however, being an anxious person and not wanting to be left behind I arrive at 2.30pm to be safe. As the hours pass […]

Queer prom: the debs I wished I’d had

Last night, Friday February 24, I had the pleasure of attending the second annual Intervarsity Queer Prom, an event held for LGBT+ students across all of Dublin’s third-level institutions.

En Español: Hispanic Soc’s role in improving your oral exam grades

When I first saw DU Hispanic Society’s event, “Desayuno and Speed Friending” I was allured into attending, for the most part, out of a sense of duty. I study Spanish as part of my degree, and therefore feel somewhat obliged to attend events that relate to my course (That and the fact that the promise […]

How to be a hack

  With the election campaigns for next year’s Students’ Union Officers finally coming to an end, the swarm of hacks present on campus in recent weeks has finally dispersed. Some of the most influential names on campus have been brought to the forefront of discussion: candidates, campaign team members, and opinionated critics alike.   In […]
