*buzz, buzz* – It’s that brutally early alarm reminding you that you have a lecture this morning. “It’s not compulsory” you think, as you justify snoozing it for the third time, convincing yourself that you will watch it online later… but come on, let’s not lie to ourselves.

If there’s one thing I have learned from you (our #genYOU community), it’s that you are some of the most driven and motivated students I’ve met. Heck – when I was at uni, I 100% was not attending the same amount of events or as actively involved in student clubs as I should have been. […]
At genYOU HQ, we’re getting ready to enter the busier end of our 2019 … we also know that you’ve just come back from what was probably an epic – and well-deserved – uni break! So what better time to chat to you about all things #timemanagement? Most of the time, you can’t fight the […]
