Latin Americans at Surrey

An insight into life at Surrey from two current Latin American students

Guildford through a tourist’s eyes

It’s been a long time since I last blogged. I spent a few weeks sick and having to deal with hospital appointments and I also had a lot of assignments to turn in, final exams and my mother visited. Hopefully I’ll finally go back to blogging consistently for the rest of the semester. I’ll spend […]

My new experiences with student groups and associations!

Hola! Hello!

I want to share with you my experience trying out new student groups and associations on campus. The University of Surrey has a great variety that you can choose from. The first time you might hear about them is at Fresher’s fair, where all of the universities groups and societies show case what they have to offer, and they have a contact list where you can sign up in order to receive their emails and news. You can also follow them on Facebook and Instagram for latest news and events.

This past Saturday I went on a hiking trip organized by the Hiking Society. It started at 10:00am and it lasted until 2:00pm. We went to the hills that are behind the university and by the end we ended up in town. It was a beautiful day because the sun came out in the afternoon. It was a great experience because I was able to take a friend of mine that visited me on the same trail and he loved it! So now I know more about Guildford and I can share that experience. Here are some pictures from the February hiking trip!

I also attended a movie night by the Disney society where we watched Monsters Inc, (which is my favourite Disney movie!) In the future I plan on trying to ice skate with the Ice Skating society, since I have never done it before. I think I should learn to do it now that I am in the UK, plus it is only 1 pound with the Ice Staking society.

Something wonderful about this university is that all the groups and societies make social events during the year. So I will be attending a Latin night! Which has been organised by the Salsa, Hispanic, Italian, French, and Portuguese student societies. You see, there is something for everyone here!

Have a great rest of the week! Until next time! 🙂


What are student reps for?

I might have mentioned student reps briefly in a previous post, but I think it is a topic worth covering more in depth as it is something I hadn’t seen anywhere else. During the first couple of weeks of the first semester we got an email asking if anyone would like to be a student […]

Living in University Accommodation

Hey! Sorry for the sporadic nature of my blog posts lately, hopefully next week I’ll be fully settled into my new schedule and start blogging at a consistent time again. This week I’ll talk about how living in university accommodation has been like so far. I live in Twyford Court. It’s very close to the […]

Accessing healthcare in the UK

Hey! Sorry I’ve been away from blogging so long, it’s been a hectic few weeks given that the final exam period was two weeks long and I happened to have exams starting from the first day at 9am all the way to 6pm on the last day. During the Christmas break I was able to […]
