Hitchhiker’s guide to Hatfield hookups

According to Ohio State University’s e-history website, hookups had a huge upswing in frequency between 1920 and 1960. This was due to the growing popularity of automobiles, advancements such as movie theatres, access to birth control and increasingly open public discussions about premarital sexual experimentation. In 2023, hookup culture in Hatfield is a wanton phenomenon fuelled by liquid courage, academic stress, healthy curiosity and a shocking amount of space in the toilet stalls in bars at the Strip. Here are ten tips for surviving hookup culture in Hatfield.

Dorm Plants for Dormant Rooms

Living alone for the first time can be quite a lonely and daunting experience. Plants are a great way to liven up any living space. They have intangible benefits that may improve our daily lives. “They make our surroundings more pleasant, and they make us feel calmer. Interior plants have been associated with reduced stress, increased pain tolerance, and improved productivity in people,” states V.I Lohr in his article “What are the Benefits of Plants Indoor and Why Do We Respond Positively to Them?” Students may not have much time to closely take care of plants.  Luckily, there are many plants that do not need much care, water, or sunlight. 

Hey Roomie

COVID-19 is not gone, but the lockdown restrictions are, and 2023 is the first year since 2020 that the
university year can commence as it normally would. This means a lot more to TuksRes students than anyone else
in the university diaspora, as they were most hard hit by the old restrictions. Luckily this is no longer the case, and TuksRes students can go back to fully enjoying unmasked socials, an unrestricted orientation week, and coming back
in the early hours of the morning without fear of written warnings.

Helping each other at UP: Navigating disability on campus

It seems to be that time of year again. There will be many fresh faces on campus and, accompanying these faces, no shortage of high-strung ambitions and questions like “Where can I find the ClickUp building?” But there is no need to fear. The anxiety and uncertainty are as much a part of the traditional first- year experience as the 2-minute noodles and the continuous hangover that is O-Week. All this is to say that the one major help to anyone trying to come to grips with varsity life is the realisation that this is far from being an uncommon struggle. Perhaps most importantly, this extends even to students who first encounter student life with the added challenge of adjusting while living with a disability. Fortunately, there is no shortage of support for new students to rely on. What follows is a breakdown of where students with disabilities can find support on campus, as well as a bit of wisdom on the matter
of disabilities for any students interested in supporting one another in the face of any disability-related challenges.
