Review: Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

Let me start by saying how much I love Gilmore Girls. I have watched the original series’ countless times and feel so emotionally attached to the characters and their stories. When I found out that the Gilmore Girls revival was happening, I couldn’t wait; finally I was going to revisit Stars Hollow! Yet now that I’ve watched all four episodes of the revival I don’t know what to think. Serious spoilers ahead, so don’t read on if you haven’t watched it yet.

In an email sent to all UKC students this afternoon, Kent Union has criticised the University for its announcement that it intends to “increase tuition fees next academic year for continuing Home/EU Undergraduate students who joined the University in or after September 2015.” Union President Rory Murray, who signed off the email, said that the Union is “incredibly disappointed”, and that they believe putting up fees is “a mistake.” Kent Union were able to challenge the University on the increase of tuition fees for students who started before September 2015, but did not succeed in persuading them to implement…

England Triumphs over South Africa

Saturday 12th November marked the date of the titanic struggle between South Africa and England. The last victory England had over the Boks was November 2006 when Phil Vickery scored a dramatic late try to seal a 23-21 victory. However, with England in arguably the best form since 2003, this was as good a situation possible for them to finally beat the physical South Africans. Jones has not lost a game yet and increased his winning run to ten with a 37-21 thumping of South Africa, though the score line does not do the game justice, in which England…

Update: ‘Ellie the Elephant’ vandalised for second time in protest at Medway Campus

In a protest against the defunding of The University of Kent’s School of Music and Fine Art, a student, James Keown, has for a second time vandalised ‘Ellie the Elephant’; a statue of an elephant outside of the University of Kent’s Medway Building. Reportedly the act was carried out by a trio of students but James Keown, the ringleader of the two protests, is the only named student at this time. The first of these two protests saw the statue covered in blue tarpaulin which had ‘No SMFA No Art!’ sprayed on it.   Once this was removed, the…
