To finish off our #ARUinLove stories we're bringing you our wonderful Alumni Officer Kim's story of how she met her husband Evan. "Evan and I met after a chance meeting on ARU’s Chelmsford campus back at the beginning of 2017, when he was in the middle of his PhD and I was working in The MedBIC at the time. We clicked straight away and began to spend more and more time together, FaceTiming almost every night of our relationship. After meeting each other’s families, them meeting each other (slightly trickier when one family lives almost 3000 miles away!) and me proofreading his PhD a few Christmases ago, Evan proposed in January last year. We got married in November, moved in together, Evan submitted his PhD with final corrections and we flew to Nigeria for his brother’s wedding all within a month, making 2019 an incredible year. I’m incredibly grateful for his support, not only for me, but of my whole family through a difficult time a few years ago. He’s not just my husband, he’s my best friend, and I wouldn’t have it any other way." #valentinesday2020 #valentinesday #metatuni #couplegoals #angliaruskin #aruproud #arualumni #angliaruskinuniversity #lovestories #cambridge #chelmsford #aruchelmsford

The Essex countryside is beautiful - so peaceful and calming. Our Chelmsford campus is based in Essex’s county city and not far at all from these lovely countryside landscapes. Yesterday we were at Boydells Dairy Farm with our Midwifery students to learn about lambing and discover the similarities and differences between sheep births and human births. We had beautiful sunshine for the occasion- although looks are deceiving - it was also very vold@and windy! #boydellsfarm #aruproud #aruanimals #essexcountryside #aruchelmsford #essexhorses #essexlandscape #studentmidwives #midwiferystudents #midwifery #lambing #angliaruskin #angliaruskinuniversity

Today we celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science! #IDWGS2020 International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on 11 February, recognises the important role women and girls play in science and technology. With that in mind, we asked some of our third-year students to tell us what science means to them. Here's Faye – 2nd year medical student. She said: "More women than ever are entering medical school, however fewer are reaching higher speciality training in areas like surgery. There’s a perception that it’s impossible to pursue a career in surgery and raise a family. Last year we held a Women in Surgery discussion panel at the Medical School, to address the misconceptions and highlight how these careers are well within our reach. We got to be in the presence of ten successful female surgeons/trainees who empowered us and made us realise we should never let our gender stop us achieving our goals. My photo was taken following the event with two female doctors who had just been accepted onto surgical training (I’m on the left!)." #ARUPROUD! #WomenInScienceDay #WomeninSTEM #ARUMedicine #angliaruskin #medicalstudents #studyingmedicine #womeninsciences #dayofwomeninscience #ARUchelmsford
