COLLEGE STREET SW1
CITY OF WESTMINSTER
This week, College Street is dedicated to all those who are sitting their last exam, handing in the final piece of coursework and binding that dissertation. It’s summer! You made it! What now? Here is our tick list of summer activities. Squeeze as many in to your time off as you can and let us know what you get up to.
Write a CV
It’s not fun, but a CV is one of the most important documents you will ever have. It has to sell you to a future employer, and that is now harder than ever. A good CV will be the difference between getting an interview, or not even being considered for the role. Set aside a day this summer to write or update yours. There are lots of websites online that can help.
Go to a festival
It’s almost a rite of passage for any young person to spend a few days kneedeep in mud, listening to great bands with friends. Have you booked your tickets yet? The major festivals can be pricey, but smaller, local events can be just as much fun if you’re with your mates, and often half the price. Also check out the Christian festival scene, such as Soul Survivor and Momentum. Organise an end of exams Barbie for your friends. Buy a few buns, some salad and then ask everyone to bring a pack of burgers or sausages. That is all you need for a great time! Be careful with the meat though, to ensure it is thoroughly cooked.
Learn how to make a new meal If you’re starting university next term, this is a particularly good idea! Ask a family member to teach you to make their favourite dish, or have a look through a recipe book and pick something adventurous. Impress your new flatmates with your culinary flare.
Get ready for next year We are not just talking about pencils and protractors. Do you have a reading list? Start now so it’s not a panic at the end of August! Split your reading time between the textbooks you have to read and a novel of your choice so that it does not feel like such a chore. You will feel super smug at the end of summer to be ahead of your classmates.
