Water Cooler Gossip: What happens at the water cooler, ends up on a blog

A new student-run blog has just launched. The blog, Water Cooler Gossip, will provide information, advice and tips to undergraduate students as they navigate their way through university before moving on to further education or the job market. Written by a fourth-year Social Sciences student, the blog will be your link to student life and offer honest and helpful advice based on personal experiences, GIF's, and advice commonly heard around the office water cooler.
