Last night I stumbled on a great blog called Alpha Student. Here’s what they are all about:
Alpha Student’s aim is to help you get the most out of your time as a student. Whether you need practical tips, money know-how, academic help, friendly support, a plan for your future, or just some fun, you’ll find it here.
We started Alpha Student because we’re students ourselves and wish we’d known a lot of the stuff here when we started out. We want you to learn from our past mistakes and unnecessary worries, and we want to share our current experiences with you too.
Above all, Alpha Student is for you. It’s not just a blog – it’s a community of great students, all of whom want to get as much as they can out of being at college or university.
Alpha Student is the brainchild of Ali Hale (a postgrad, studying an MA in Creative and Life Writing at Goldsmiths College, London (she has a BA in English from the University of Cambridge)) and Paul David Luke (a mature undergrad (even if that sounds like an oxymoron), studying Law & Politics at London Metropolitan University).
This would have been a great resource when I was in college. So if you’re in college – or you know someone who is – give Alpha Student a look see.
