โ€˜I canโ€™t stress this enough... if you need someone to talk to, go to your PDP Tutors or a lecturer you feel comfortable with. Today I spoke to one of my favourite lecturers about how I was feeling/coping right now- not even just with the work but in general. The time and effort she has put in to reassure me and speak to me after one of the online lectures means so much. Even just to have someone to chat to, even if you dont discuss your issues, me and my lecturer had a general discussion and she ended up making me smile and laugh during the conversation. Lecturers really are the best people, they really do care and want you to be happy and do well. Regardless of if theyโ€™re your PDP Tutor or not, they stand up when you need them: not just in times like these, but always. Iโ€™m so glad that I have been blessed with the lecturers and PDP I do have. Theyโ€™re like my Uni mums๐Ÿฅบ I appreciate these people so so so so much๐Ÿคโ€ - @csi_student #ARUProud #MentalWellbeing #ARUCambridge #ARUTogether #GoingToARU #UniversityLife #AngliaRuskinUniversity

Lest we forget. Today is #RemembranceDay2020. We may not be able to mark this occasion all together as we usually do, but our students and staff will still observe a #TwoMinuteSilence at 11am. We encourage you all to join us in this silence, wherever you are. ๐ŸŒน What is Armistice Day and why do we mark this day in Britain? Here's an explanation from @RoyalBritishLegion: "The Armistice, an agreement to end the fighting of the First World War as a prelude to peace negotiations, began at 11am on 11 November 1918. Armistice is Latin for to stand (still) arms. To this day we mark Armistice Day around the United Kingdom with a Two Minute Silence at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month. Remembrance honours those who serve to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life. We unite across faiths, cultures and backgrounds to remember the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth. We will remember them." Remembrance and the poppy... why a poppy? "The poppy is a symbol of Remembrance and hope, including hope for a positive future and peaceful world. They are a show of support for the Armed Forces community, those currently serving, ex-serving personnel and their families; and a symbol of Remembrance for all those who have fallen in conflict. John McCrae wrote the poem 'In Flanders Fields' which inspired the use of the poppy as a symbol of Remembrance. In the spring of 1915, shortly after losing a friend in Ypres, a Canadian doctor, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae wrote his now famous poem after seeing poppies growing in battle-scarred fields." #Armistice #ArmisticeDay #ArmisticeDay2020 #RemembranceDay #AngliaRuskin #AngliaRuskinUniversity #BattleOfYpres #JohnMcRae #PoppyAppeal #Remembrance #LestWeForget #WeWillRememberThem #TheFallen #RememberTheFallen #WWI #WW2 #Remembering #PoppyFields #FlandersFields #HistoryFacts #BritishTraditions #royalbritishlegion

"'The Erl King's Pumpkin House' is a narrative illustration series inspired by the poem The Erl King by Angela Carter. These two images are from the start of the narrative and set the scene of seemingly cosy and inviting autumnal home. The pumpkin both represents the changing seasons through the story and the increasingly sinister events as the pumpkin slowly rots in the later images, available to view on my website)โ€ These beautiful #Pumpkin house GIFs were created by @rosie_hurley ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ•ธ #HappyHalloween #ARUproud #ARUSpooky #FridayFeeling #ARU #AngliaRuskinUniversity #ARUAlumni
