From world leading academic discourse, to some of the most ambitious and sophisticated student projects, life at LSE can be incredible. LSE is fast-paced and challenging, but take the opportunity to step back and unwind.
Check in with friends and family and take time out for yourself. At LSE there’s always support round the corner, whether that’s peer supporters, academic mentors or the brilliant support staff at LSE and LSESU.

Volunteering has provided me with a great way to connect to both the LSE community and the wider London community. Through volunteering I’ve made positive connections with people. Not only that, it’s also a great way to make a real change in the world!

Department of Anthropology
I advocated for change in my role as a student representative and helped launch the LSE Food Club loyalty scheme. Working with the School community gave me a voice in decision making, and made me feel part LSE. In addition, I advocated for online library access for alumni and to see a new project being piloted as a result of my efforts has made me feel more connected to the LSE community.

I am studying Politics in London, in 2019, at one of the best universities in the world. At LSE, you don’t just get to study our changing world, you can see it and experience it. With history being made every day, why would you want to be anywhere else?

At LSE, I truly feel like I belong to a community of great minds and kind souls. It is this pervading synergy to improve society and the availability of a conducive environment that empowers me to get, and stay involved in the LSE community. LSE truly feels like a home away from home.
Arya Gerard, Change Maker and Student Volunteering Ambassador Department of Law
Coming from Uruguay to live and study in London was really scary at first. Right from my first week I joined the newspaper and soon all fear was gone. Joining a society completely changed my experience and made me feel truly part of LSE. As a Student Academic Mentor, I was able to give a little help to first years who shared similar fears to my own.
Morgan Fairless, Student Academic Mentor and Executive Editor of The Beaver Department of Government
There are so many ways to get involved in LSE that you discover, and I’ve tried to make the most out of these chances in so many ways. From being a Student Ambassador and an SSLC representative for History, to being part of the Islamic Society and an ISOC Netball Captain, my experience has been enriched by these opportunities. I’m excited to see what more is to come!
