Student Hub visits Ark

During the Student Hub in The Light, Leeds, Student Wire had the pleasure of playing dress up in Ark Clothing. Now, as a self confessed fashion lover I have to admit, so far in my year and a month living in Leeds, I’d never been to the store. So, on the Friday afternoon I took a break from flagging people down for freebies in the Courtyard of The Light to head to Ark with 3 of my friends.

Making the most of Summer break

Breaking up from University can be both relieving and emotional. After hard exams and tedious amounts of coursework, summer break starts to sound more and more appealing. However it all comes down to how you choose to spend your holiday. Three months away from your University and your friends can seem a very long time, and a lot of you may wish to find summer jobs. But for students who don’t, the question of ‘what should I do today?’ seems to crop up frequently. The worse thing is being bored, and returning to your University having accomplished nothing and feeling…
