Here at Studenty Towers, we regularly receive all sorts of freebies from PR companies, hoping we’ll shamelessly plug the latest incarnation of flavoured sugary soda or calorie laden salty snacks. But, we know what a discerning audience you are and with your best interests at heart we usually feed these samples to the hampster that powers the Studenty server. Otherwise it’d be lights out for Hammy and Studenty both. However yesterday we received this intriguing email from the Rita Food and Drink Company in Vietnam, inviting us to contact them regarding their range [...]

5 minutes… 10 minutes… 20 minutes? Yes, any moment now the bus/train/DART should arrive. Don’t panic, you should just make it on time for your lecture; maybe a little late, but you will get there. 25 minutes… 30 minutes… 35 minutes? Ok then, you shall not be gracing your lecturer with your presence. My fellow commuters can relate to this situation without a doubt. It seems that anytime you’re on your way to a must-go class, public transport lets you down. Lets face it, commuting to college is massive a [...]
This Sunday is Father’s Day – yet another Hallmark holiday some may argue, but an excuse nonetheless, to show our dads our appreciation for them. The past week or two has seen shops promote cards and gifts, with large “Don’t forget Father’s Day, June 17th!” posters beside the generic array of ‘dad-type’ products, such as golfing accessories, soccer memorabilia, and novelty ties. The cards are similar, usually aimed at dads who like watching the footy, or golfing, or boating. Now feel free to contradict me, but usually these shops are [...]
Anyone who’s merely glanced at Facebook over the past week will have noticed the sudden explosion of college “meme pages”. Users can upload pictures with funny captions and wait with bated breath as the likes start rolling in. But where did this all come from exactly? And what the hell is a meme?! A meme is simply a concept that gains traction on the Internet. Many memes begin on message boards such as 4chan (I wouldn’t advise anyone who is easily offended to visit 4chan though.) The creation of memes [...]
Irish fans were still singing loud and proud last night as Ireland crashed out of Euro 2012 following a master class performance by Spain, putting Ireland to the sword to win 4-0. The usually organised Irish defence, which had been instrumental in the team qualifying for the Euros in the first place, was simply swept aside by a Spanish team at the top of its game. Before the match, an RTÉ poll revealed that over 75% of Irish fans believed that the team could get a result from the game. [...]
Long before the days of the iPad, Xbox and digital TV children ventured out of their rooms and into this thing called the light. They knocked for friends and played games outdoors no matter the weather. Today, this is almost seen as a scandalous idea with many preferring to stare at computer screens for hours on end, interacting with friends through social networking sites and the likes. Here are our top games of the nineties… Kick the Can This game was strange to say the least as no one actually [...]
In this era where creativity must meet with technology, I decided to do a training course on how to use Adobe Illustrator. After many hours of attempting to use this program, I feel it is my duty to save you time and money, and divulge that this tool is seriously evil. In theory, it seems a great concept. Adobe Illustrator is a vector graphics editor that allows users to draw, create geometrical shapes, symmetrical curves and even make a vector copy of your photos. Developed and marketed by Adobe Systems, [...]
Just in case my previous suggestions of activities just wasn’t enough or maybe they just weren’t the sort of things that tickle your fancy. Here is a couple more suggestions of things to do over the long summer months. We all know money is tight these days so if you can’t help charities with your couple of euro why don’t you give your time instead. Here are some different choices. 1. Teenholls The Society of St Vincent De Paul is a charity which helps out the poor and needy. It’s [...]
