Keeping up with Edge Hill!

Hey all, I hope you’re enjoying this wonderful weather!

Whether you’re a prospective student, you’re definitely coming to join us in September or you’re already a student at Edge Hill, one of the best ways to make sure you’re in touch with all the latest news and events that are going on on or around campus is through their social media pages! Even if you don’t use it yourself, you can still view the pages, but if you can give them a like or follow you’ll get all the info you need over Summer!

There are quite a few different pages, so you can follow the ones that you’re interested in, but they are so full of information that you’d be missing so much if you weren’t following them!

Facebook

There is also a group for Freshers’ Week this year which you can check out for event info; www.facebook.com/groups/2058003700995851/ 

Twitter

These are just the pages for the services the University have to offer, but a lot of the societies also have Facebook/Twitter pages. If you’re interested in any society in particular (click here for the list), just search the name of the society in the search bar of either social media and I’m sure it’ll pop up!

Keeping in-touch with Edge Hill?

Hey guys, just a quick one!

So, you’re probably soaking up the sun, enjoying summer and drinking far too many cocktails to really care about what’s going happen on results day… BUT the time will come when you will need to click into gear.

Some of you will receive the grades you need for University, others won’t… but fear not! Whether you pass with flying colours or fall just shy, EHU will be here to offer students advice.

Ways on getting in touch on results day or in general…

I’m sure you’ll all do amazing, but fear not if there is a slight blip in the road to EHU!

Until next time…:)

 

 

Filling Facebook With Art

While I’m a self-confessed Facebook addict, I rarely use it for anything more than keeping in touch with friends. I’ve never played Farmville or Candy Crush and I just really can’t get on board with the trend of sharing inspirational quotes and photos. There has, however, been something making the rounds on facebook lately that has caught my eye. The idea is that you’re assigned an artist and then you post a picture of their art and assign different artists to whoever likes the photo. Seeing artworks crop up all over my news feed has offered a nice break from the never-ending stream of ‘selfies’ and attention seeking statuses.

I enjoy art mostly in the forms of film, music and literature and wish that I knew more about paintings and sculptures. Simply through keeping an eye on this Facebook movement I have discovered new artists whose work I really admire and I’d like to share some of these artists here…

It began when my friend posted ‘Fill Facebook with art! Those who “like” this photo will be assigned an artist. Then they should post a photo of that artist’s work. I was given Niki de Saint Phalle.” Underneath she posted this photo…

I was of course drawn to the sculpture by my love of cats and after pressing the ‘like’ button I was assigned Marc Quinn. I’d never heard of Marc Quinn, but soon fell in love with his work as I browsed Google images trying to decide on which piece to repost. I eventually settled on this one…

My friend assigned Max Ernst to somebody else who then posted this picture…

When people began to ‘like’ my picture I assigned them Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha and Andy Warhol, three of the few artists that I know, and they posted these pictures…

As the chain spread and my friends began to assign artists to other people I discovered two artists that I’d never heard of before but whose work I really loved; Agnes Cecile and Włodzimierz Kuklinski…

Filling Facebook with art is something in which anyone can participate, regardless of how much they know about art. I really enjoyed browsing through the work of artists that I’d never heard of. And a news feed full of art beats a news feed full of ‘Neck Nominations’ any day.
