Hashtag Graduation!!

I cannot believe it has been over a month since I wrote my last blog entry about Graduation. Time has flown by!

Over the past weeks we have all been extremely busy getting ready for our busiest time of year. It’s bizarre to think that we will now be out of the office and down in the Marquee; months of planning culminate into just one week.

Since I last checked in about Congregation lots has happened.

I enjoy following a whole range of people, from friends to celebs to my favourite cafes and shops.

I was therefore very excited this week when we took the leap and set up our own Durham University Retail Office Instagram account. We will be using this, not only to post photos of the merchandise we have on offer, but also to showcase our outlets throughout the city. We are very lucky to have some beautiful shops including Palace Green Library Shop, The Oriental Museum, the World Heritage Site Visitor centre, and the Botanic Garden.  Although these shops are fabulous enough as they are, there’s no harm in adding an Instagram Filter to get even more stunning results!

I have really enjoyed the social media element of my internship, managing the Facebook and ... read more
