Wow, it has been a long time since we last blogged, sorry! With the excitement of Christmas & the New Year, time has run away from us.
Following on from our last post, since then we have had a huge amount of snow, like most of the country did! Wellies, hats and scarves became ordinary items of my work outfits and the campus looked beautiful. Here are a couple of snaps…
Ice, ice, swan?

Holidays are coming…
So now I’ve seen the Coca-Cola advert I don’t know about everyone else but I think I am officially starting to feel festive. Tonight marks the start of Lincoln’s annual Christmas Market, which for me, also means Christmas is well and truly on it’s way. Myself and Nicola are taking a look at the market this evening, we’ve wrapped up extra warm & are armed with wellies in case snow decides to descend on Lincoln.

So Fresher’s week is over, everyone is settling into University life and Autumn is well and truly here. This time of year sees the start of Open Days and UCAS applications, the University cycle is starting again! With this in mind, we want to get the facts straight and make sure everyone has all they need to know about Student Finance. The £9,000 fees make it even more important to spread the word and dispel the myths – a lot of people are put off by the big figures and the ‘debt’ they’ll be in when they leave University. We really don’t want this to happen, everyone can go to University if they want to… Continue reading

Good morning bloggers 🙂
Although it is a wet & miserable Friday, the campus has transformed into something a little more exciting than usual. The University is playing host to the National Fire and Rescue Challenge Competition – 130 teams from across the country are competing in a range of simulated rescues. As I type, I can see two men dangling from our office by some rope – beats the grey skies and muddy puddles! Nic and I are keen to get some photos, which we will of course share with you all… Continue reading
The beautiful Olympic opening ceremony
So, Olympic fever has taken over the entire country and I for one am completely obsessed. What an amazing couple of weeks! I want everyone to be this proud of ‘GB‘ all the time, let’s hope it lasts!
Gold medals galore & some Olympic nail art!
During the day when I’m not glued to the telly I have been busy busy in the Student Support Centre & the Marketing office. As you all know, Hannah is currently working in the Admissions department, also, Matt is now on holiday and Nic has just returned from hers, so the team has been a bit disjointed. However, Nic and I are really excited to have Hannah back next week after she finishes her 4 week project with Admissions – we love working together as a team and have missed her lots.

A montage of Birmingham
Well, this is definitely long over due! Just over a month ago, Hannah and I went to Birmingham for a few days to attend some Higher Education events – we were there representing the University, informing prospective students about all of our courses, handing out prospectus’ and generally promoting ourselves! This is what happened: Continue reading
A very satisfied (slightly exaggerated) audience
Well, this is my first day back in the office in what feels like AGES. I’ve just got back from Latitude Festival – I had an amazing few days seeing some fantastic live music, comedy, poetry and theatre. Four loads of washing later and I think I have just about got rid of the mud out of my clothes! So now it’s back to reality… Continue reading
