Studying at LSE has been a process of challenging myself intellectually. I already spoke in previous posts about my struggle to find myself academically during my undergraduate studies. I think that the main difference when you start your master’s level degree – and this is truer when you’ve already had time to think about what you want to do – […]
Moving to a different country is definitely a transformative experience (duh). All of a sudden I realized that back in Brazil I would eat rice and beans at least four times a week and I had never taken notice of it before. I realized that here there is no cheese-bread available for an afternoon snack when you go to […]
I don’t think that I was familiar with the idea of a university having a volunteering sector before I came to LSE. Volunteering is at the core of the LSE experience; we hear about it every single week and I think that this is great because it provides the opportunity of doing very fun things, meeting people outside ‘the bubble’ […]
I don’t have words to describe my year at LSE. One post is not going to do justice to everything that I learned, to all the people I met and to how much this year has changed me.
However, after months thinking about data E-V-E-R-Y S-I-N-G-L-E D-A-Y, there is no better place to start.
By surrounding ourselves with technology, we produce […]
This place will burst like fireworks.
I don’t really know how we got here, this atmosphere was built little by little throughout the break… But last week (Week 1 of Summer Term) LSE was transformed into a giant cauldron of nerves and stress.
STARTING FROM THE BEGINNING…
I had a great break. According to my Google Maps timeline I spent 27 days, […]
This week I was saddened to learn that Rosebery Hall will not be hosting a postgraduate community in the next academic year.
I have met a lot of postgrads living in halls at LSE and not one of them has had an experience like the one we had here at Rosebery. Not even those living in Bankside.
Unlike other halls, at […]
Next time that you happen to be walking around the LSE Campus, don’t miss the opportunity to check out this very strange construction: A hidden entry to an old tube station labeled only as “Strand Station”.
Although located in the Strand, one of the iconic streets in central London and reference point for those roaming around LSE, the big gate is […]
Welcome ladies and gentlemen to this most exquisite event.
Lent Term is already in its final stretch and it has been seven months since we moved into LSE Rosebery Hall. Between long brunches, Sunday mornings eating pancakes in the kitchen and birthday celebrations, this experience has been a blast. You can read all about my Rosebery life on this post […]
When I first got to LSE, it felt like being here was exactly what I was meant to do. I felt like all of my decisions were right and this moment was the time of my life. I even wrote about it here.
I still feel like that, but Lent Term is developing on a completely different note from Michaelmas […]
I feel like at LSE we have a very specific notion of what it means to have fun. We sit down for coffee and start talking about internet infrastructures, one hour later we see ourselves talking about trains. No wonder that some of the most exciting things happening on campus are the public lectures, open events that everyone can […]
