Procrastination Station

Don’t lie to me. We both know that you are currently reading this to procrastinate from your study. It’s okay I may have been writing this to procrastinate from mine…

So now that we both know about your procrastination habits, I’m going to tell you how to procrastinate better.

9 magical sites that you can visit should your mind begin to wander from the books:

  1. Facebook, your old friend.
    For: the stalkers
    The best thing about Facebook during times of heavy study and exam prep is that you can use it to talk to other people about how much they also aren’t studying, therefore making you feel better about your own lack of study! Genius.
  2. Buzzfeed
    For: everyone
    My personal favourite procrastination website. There are funny stories, videos, pictures and gifs. I could be stuck on here all day!
  3. Eel slap
    For: the easily amused
    You literally get to slap a man with an eel across his face. What more could you want really?
  4. Do nothing for 2 minutes
    For: the stressed
    This is perfect for those who really need to chill out. Listen to some waves while you do exactly nothing for 2 minutes. If you move your mouse or touch the keyboard you fail!
  5. Well dressed animals
    For: animal lovers and fashionistas
    Animals are cute right? What about animals in clothing? You know you wanna see it.
  6. Find the invisible cow
    For: all
    As the shouting gets louder you are getting closer to the cow. Click when you think you’ve found it. So simple, yet so amusing. You’ll thank me later!
  7. Daily Compliment
    For: the sad
    This website is perfect if you’re feeling a bit down and need a quick pick me up! Bookmark the page during study week so you’ll get a little bit of sunshine every morning before you start your day.
  8. Stumble upon
    For: lazy procastinators
    Basically you sign up and make an account letting them know what you are interested in, such as: baking, science, art, food, reading, psychology etc. Then Stumbleupon will direct interesting links to you based on your choices. Procastination at your fingertips!
  9. Youtube
    For: those who just want to zone out
    Use this website with caution. You’re never to far away from the ‘weird side of Youtube’… you know what I’m talking about. Some things just can’t be unseen.

 Happy procrastinating! 

Proud to be at UC- UC retains ranking in top 3% of world

UC Mace





The latest QS World University Rankings show that Canterbury is listed as the 242nd ranked university in the world. While this may not seem like the top of the bunch, when you examine the numbers – there are around 17,000 universities worldwide – this is pretty awesome! Canterbury has also improved from its rating in 2006 of 333rd in the world. This just shows that the rebuilding of various facilities and structures on campus is really paying off.

Additionally, out of 3,000 university’s all over the world, UC is rated in the top 100 for History, Geography, Law, Education, Civil and Structural Engineering. Vice Chancellor Dr Rod Carr said that “For the university to retain its position in the top three per cent is a credit to the quality and commitment of staff considering the impact of the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes”.

As Canterbury continues to move forward the future for our university looks bright! Read more
