Why students should blog

Blogging is an extremely popular platform for not only writers but anyone with any interest.

Primarily Univesity is a place to study and earn a degree, however in most students’ eyes, its secondary purpose lies amongst its social aspects. The famous (or infamous, depending on how you look at it) ‘Fresher’s Week lies just a few weeks away, and the ‘buzz’ it gives off is phenominal.
