Clement House Rotunda: give us feedback on the new study spaces

Have you seen the newly refurbished learning spaces at Clement House? These are located on Floors 2-7, in the central ‘rotunda’ stairwell. You can find out more about the design from the recent LTI blog post.

Me, SADL and the indispensable tools

Over the course of the three years of my undergraduate life at LSE, few things have characteristically stayed constant. Course have changed, career paths have swayed and well let’s not even comment about London weather. But in the great turbulence of times and tides, from the wide eyed days of first year to the more cynical chasm of the […]

Holiday chat and map making!

Last week we had the official summer break. We celebrated the end of the year with a light lunch, plenty of chats about exams, graduations and holidays.

Procrastination locked out!

Hello readers!

How SADL got me hired

Securing a job after graduation is something that matters to a great extent to most of students I have met during my time at LSE. Some start their search as early as in their first year of undergraduate studies.

Referencing: a pain in academia no longer!

Referencing I’m sure you all know can be the most tedious part when writing in academia. Where did I find that quote? Where did I store that reading? Why does it take so long? Are a few of my thoughts when referencing. I’m sure they’re relatable, notably as we scurry through our notes, trying to quickly assemble some references […]
