Spread across a few hills, Strathclyde University is right in the middle of Glasgow’s central business district, within easy crawl of its bars, clubs and cultural gems...more detail Apart from the original redbrick University building, the campus is a collection of brutalist post-60s structures that blend seamlessly into the city. The smaller, near-autonomous Education campus (complete with the biggest education library in Scotland) is about five miles away at Jordanhill. Most of the student body hails from western Scotland and are keen to speed through university and pop out the other end with a tasty job...more on academic Strathclyde likes to try new teaching methods and has taken a particular shine to the idea of cyberspace as a learning environment. The Students’ Association’s a tightly run ship with a bar-blessed entertainments programme...more on the SU The University has its fair share of sporting victories, particularly in curling and sailing...more on sports First years from over 25 miles away are guaranteed a room...more on housing Bursaries lean towards the somersaulting, cartwheeling, sporty types...more on welfare

DuchenneNow

Duchenne muscular dystrophy is fatal. There is no cure. Children are losing the ability to walk, hug, eat, draw, play and breathe every day. Please take a second to sign this petition. DMD is fatal, but a new (and safe!) drug could finally offer a treatment! Children will continue to die and children will continue to lose their ability to walk if this decision continues to be postponed. www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/fda-please-accept-sarepta-s-new-drug-application-nda-for-eteplirsen If you would like more information about DMD before deciding whether or not to sign, please see this short blog post by a dad whose son has Duchenne: http://community.parentprojectmd.org/profiles/blogs/late-night-confessions-are-hope-and-truth-compaitible or watch any of these beautiful videos about DMD: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIVnkXmUlgpTdTQP2c1EcXgDNYDWPjwcJ (the 9th video is 32 seconds long for those who are interested but would rather not watch the longer 3-5 minute videos!)
