My name is Sophie and I am a 4th year International Hospitality Management student at RGU. I was lucky enough to attend the Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland conference recently which was such an inspiring day!
When we are away from home, we always miss the food. Though we are away from home, we should treat ourselves good and keep ourselves healthy. Last semester, I tried my best to go to GoGreenLivEco Café’s Friday veggie food night; but I could never make it. (more…)
I, like a large number of students at RGU, have moved to Aberdeen to study – and so was not really familiar with the area prior to living here. So if like me, you enjoy being outdoors, there are a variety of day trips as well as things to do and see around the city and further afield. (more…)
So it’s officially winter and we have now entered the festive season, I’m sure most of you will be eagerly awaiting the holidays as I did when I was studying.

I’m Helen a senior community nurse, living and working in the beautiful Orkney Isles. I’ve lived in Orkney all my life, with the exception of the 3 years I lived in Aberdeen studying for a diploma of higher education in adult nursing. On my return to Orkney, I found my way into community nursing after a short stint on palliative/cancer care ward. It wasn’t long before I realised most doors which led to progressing a career in community nursing were closed without a degree. (more…)
