Issues

We have received some brand new editions of Issues. Issues is a publication that covers every issue world wide. We have many copies in the Student Zone and you can also view these online. You may need them for research, as part of your study or maybe these topics are of a great interest to you.

Mental Health awareness week 2021 – Get involved!

We know that the last year has been difficult, we’ve had to adapt to a new way of studying, socialising and working.

Our staff here in the Student Zone have been enjoying lunch time walks, Carly says ” Getting out at lunchtime gives me an energy boost, I feel motivated in the afternoon and I feel like the walks really have a positive effect on my mental wellbeing”

We challenge you to do the same. Send us some pictures of your journey, Rickerby Park & Bitts Park are close by and full of awesome picture opportunities, send your pictures to studentzone@carlisle.ac.uk and we will add your pics to an online gallery. There may even be a little treat for those who enter!

This is Carly’s snapshot of her walk, we can’t wait to see yours.
