It’s finally women’s week — our designated time to acknowledge the value of women in our community. While we still have a way to go till we can walk home at night without keys jammed between our knuckles, it is important to celebrate how far we have come.

Opinions are like regrets. Everyone has one, some are well founded, while others are kept hidden deep away.

Hey — I’m Ella, your Wellbeing and Sustainability Officer, and I have had chlamydia. STIs are still one of the ultimate taboo subjects, and I’m pretty tired of it team. I slept with a friend of a friend who told me he was clean when neither of us had a condom. Turned out he wasn’t. […]

Kia ora, mabuhay, salut (I still have at least five more ways of saying that)! I am Geo, your campaigns officer. No I am not studying geography or geology (I am doing a conjoint LLB/BA in International Relations & Political Science) nor am I named after the Earth (okay that was corny). Kids in the […]
