Host Weekly Challenge: Week 4 – TikTok
For the last 3 weeks, we’ve been taking on a variety of different challenges that have been sweeping the internet. From tea bag throwing to juggling, we’ve been putting our skills to the test and we’ve been asking our teams and students to get involved too.
But this week, we wanted to mix things up. We, like many others, have been trying to find new ways to kill some time and have some fun whilst in lockdown. And, in doing so, last week we found ourselves on TikTok.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with TikTok, it’s basically a social media channel used to create videos; short (3 to 60 seconds) dance, lip-syncing, comedy and talent videos.
So, with our interest sparked in this increasingly popular app, we’ve created our very own TikTok account (follow us @hoststudentsuk). But now what do we do?
Week 4: TikTok Challenges
Well, that’s where you come in. We’re after some inspiration for our videos and some fun ideas to get us going on TikTok.
So, if you’re on TikTok, what challenges have you been getting involved with? We want to know (and see) what challenges are the most popular, the most fun to create, the easiest or hardest to do, and what ones can you do if you’re on your own?
Below are some of the dance challenges we’ve come across in our short time on TikTok.

When you’re viewing a property for university, we understand the importance of asking questions and getting the feel of the space. You might feel pressure to secure student accommodation, but it pays off to be thorough when viewing show flats. We’ve put together a list of the best questions to ask when viewing student accommodation.
This year, Chinese New Year is on Saturday 10th February and it is the year of the Dragon Zodiac. The Chinese New Year date changes every year, but is always held between January 21st and February 20th, as the Chinese year follows the lunar calendar. The holiday falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice, (the winter solstice, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun), on December 21st.
