Women’s Volleyball Ensure Winning UKC Start To Varsity

The women’s volleyball team got UKC off to a winning start in Varsity with a 3-0 victory over CCCU, James Shaw reports. This was the performance the UKC women’s team, who have not been having the best of seasons, really needed. This win saw a fantastic offensive display against an inferior Christ Church team. They started well. The captain, Dainyah Mason, led by example with some good blocking but the spiking award has to go to Marlène Lapeyre. As the first set finished with UKC victorious, you could tell that Lapeyre’s rocket right arm was causing problems for a…

Feeling sleepy? UEA has opened a nap room for students

The University of East Anglia (UEA) is going to be considered one of the luckiest universities by many jealous students, after announcing this month that they were the first university in the country to open a nap room for students. I first thought it was a ridiculous idea. Who would want to nap in the middle of the university, in the middle of the day, surrounded by other napping students? That’s a bit weird isn’t it?

Best Albums Ever: I Forget Where We Were – Ben Howard

Ben Howard’s second LP is, for me, one of the boldest steps an artist can take in the music industry. Many artists with a slightly-poppy debut album (such as Mr Howard’s Every Kingdom) find themselves sucked into commercialism by the time their sophomore effort is released, which means many of these ‘second albums’ end up being heavily diluted with meaningless, generic, non-sincere songs aimed for the most profitable market. Ben has seen this potential occurrence and shoved it in the complete opposite direction. He could have easily sat back, let the label and producers do most of the work, and…

Child of Divorce

    Divorce is such an ugly word, yet for some families, it is the best thing that happens to them. Mum and Dad separated when I was 4. The reasons weren’t vile or cliché; there wasn’t any sordid affair, just, two people fell in love at the wrong stages of their lives. Dad was always working, never there, Mum married idealism and hated reality. Growing up for my Sister and I was a battle of who gets time with whom. Every other Sunday, when my Dad would drive us home, he would take us to McDonalds, then to…

Week 18 BUCS: Winning Wednesday For UKC

Wednesday 25 February saw the last round of BUCS fixtures before Varsity 2015. It was a good day for Team Kent with six victories and just one loss. It was an all-Kent affair in the men’s lacrosse but the unbeaten first team managed to beat their seconds by the substantial margin of 18-3. Elsewhere, the women’s first badminton team emphatically defeated Essex seconds to find the sort of momentum that will give them a boost heading into Varsity. The men’s rugby firsts also enjoyed a big win, defeating Kings College seconds to keep themselves above Christchurch in the table….
