Staying active and healthy at university

It’s 11pm and you’ve just started writing up your essay due in tomorrow. You whip out your packet of chocolate digestives you picked up from Waitrose earlier on your way back home and crack on with your essay. Three hours later you’re typing up your last sentence; you’re done with your essay but you’re also done with half your […]

My Photo Walk of London

While I usually spend most of my free time or ‘gaps’ in the library catching up on readings and assessments, I also try to spend some time off-campus. I too often find myself being drawn to the library, not necessarily because of the workload but because I don’t really think to spend my free time doing anything else. A […]

3 reasons why you will love the LSE Law Department

As Lent Term comes to a close, and exam season is just around the corner, it’s no secret that most of us are starting to feel the insurmountable pressure looming ahead of us. Yet looking back on the past seven months, my time with the Department of Law has been a challenging, enriching and truly unforgettable experience, and I […]

LSE Halls: Why Northumberland House?

I live at one of LSE’s Halls of Residence – Northumberland House, to be specific – and it’s located just a minute’s walk from Trafalgar Square. In my opinion, it is one of THE BEST HALLS at LSE. But don’t let me influence your opinion. Read and decide for yourself.

This is as “central” as it gets.

Northumberland House is […]

That time I walked through a doughnut hole

Was that title clickbait? Yes, I believe so, but read on to hear about Krispy Kreme’s fun pop-up at Leicester Square.

London always has some interesting event going on. Being one who enjoys these quirky events, I tend to keep an eye out for such events and a recent one was the Krispy Kreme pop-up. On Friday, the 8th of […]

My Top Tip for Reading Week!

The Students@LSE Blog holds a special place in my heart because I went through all the articles on here during those nervous nights before I moved to London to pursue my MSc. I took most of the advice here so seriously. I came across this article on the blog ‘Reading Week: Exactly What Is Needed for The Road Ahead’ […]

Why I have come to love the Department of Sociology

My program, MSc. in City Design and Social Science, falls in the Department of Sociology. When compared with LSE’s Department of Economics, in terms of numbers of students, Sociology seems invisible. As a graduate student, constantly tussling about whether or not I was choosing the right program, this difference constantly confused me. However, now having completed my Michaelmas Term […]

    A Sip of Scotland for Mental Well-being: why we all need a ‘do-nothing’ trip

A Sip of Scotland for Mental Well-being: why we all need a ‘do-nothing’ trip

I’m a city girl through and through. I love the noise, the hustle-bustle lifestyle, the traffic. It keeps me entertained and occupied. Plus, it is very convenient. Anything and everything is available within a one-mile radius. But sometimes, it does overwhelm you and when you feel yourself getting physically and mentally exhausted, you know it’s time to take a […]

Fresh Off the Boat from Singapore

Where I come from, the weather is nothing like London. The tropical heat is intense all year-round and humidity clings onto you like a second skin. In a freak weather occurrence last year, the temperature dropped to 22 degrees Celsius and people swapped their usual shorts and slippers for a winter coat. Yes, I’m from Singapore, the country that […]

My Top 5 Day Trips from London

London is an excellent choice for travelers as it is located at an accessible distance to world famous cities and attractions in the UK. I get some time to see London on a off day during the week, and a few European cities during the term breaks. However, there are a lot of beautiful cities in the UK that […]
