When you think about starting university, you expect to be filled with excitement about what the next three or four years of your life will be like. But you may still be nervous so to help we've put together some common concerns from students and how to deal with them.
Host Weekly Challenge: Week 2
It’s that time of the week again. Yes, it’s Wednesday, so that can only mean one thing, we’re revealing the details of our latest Weekly Challenge.
Last week saw the arrival of the first ever Host Weekly Challenge and what a great response we received! Thanks to everyone who got involved and showed off their tea bag throwing skills – we loved seeing every single one of them.
So, are you ready for week 2? Here we go…
Week 2: Toilet Roll Keepy-Uppies Challenge
It’s a trend that’s been sweeping the internet for a few weeks now and we thought it was about time we jumped on the bandwagon – and we want you to as well!
Watch the video below for details and a demonstration of our second challenge.
Can you kick it?
That’s our attempt at the challenge, so now, yep, you guessed it, it’s your turn! Toilet roll might be like gold dust at the moment, but if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on a roll, give this challenge a go.
Never played football? Don’t think you’ll be any good? That doesn’t matter, have some fun and try it out, you might even surprise yourself and discover you have a hidden talent for toilet roll keepy-uppies!
As with all of our challenges, please keep sharing your attempts with us as we could all do with a bit of light-hearted fun and laughter at the moment. Tag us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using @hoststudentsuk and remember to use the hashtag #AtHomeWithHost.
Do you have a fun idea for a weekly challenge that we could all try at home? Send us a message on social media and we’ll consider it for future challenges!
Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
