Lydia Carter presents illustrations of climate outrage. Is the Just Stop Oil group an accurate representation of the Suffragettes from the century of old? If so, are preventative protesting laws adding monstrous fuel to an already raging fire?
Clubs reopening: dance Fever!
Olivia Richards recounts her experience of going out and letting loose in the club after the Pandemic.
A Blend of Non-EU Honeys
The repercussions of Brexit are endless, and here is another: pesticides illegal under EU regulations are now contaminating the honeys we consume. Unions of agricultural workers have lobbied the government, but now the Green party and environmental activists are doing the same back.
Degrees and disabilities
Only when coming to university did I discover I had a learning disability – no thanks to any seminar leaders or professors, but thanks to one of my best friends who has the same learning disability as I do, who recognised himself in me and urged me to seek a diagnosis. It affects a whole […]
What we’ve missed the most – summer edition
I have had a particularly long break from Exeter, as I spent this year on my Year Abroad in a tiny town in the east of Germany, not far from the Czech border. This extended time away from the glorious EX4 has indeed proved that absence makes the heart grow stronger – I’ve missed Exeter […]

So, your exams are over, the English rain in July is getting you down, and the summer is stretching out in front of you, not an internship or productive experience in sight…what to do?
