By the end of the last semester, had you visited the NSS blog you would’ve felt like you were standing alone in a deserted courtyard at night. No sign of life, nothing of interest. That creepy feeling of being alone with nothing else but insects, must have washed over you and made you wonder: what am I doing here?
We all felt that way. Yes, we, the [new] maintainers and writers of this blog felt that way too. So, the first thing we did?
We burnt the blog to ashes.
However, we have rebuilt the blog and given it some attractive, branded clothes. Along with that, aside from the occasional articles, we have decided to introduce some new ideas and projects into the mix. Here’s a bit about them:
A Day in the Life
Studying in a particular school, have you ever noticed a pattern in your routine? Something typical to your school, which you experience every day?
That is what we’re going to start excavating. We will bring to our blog, stories from all the departments of NUST. From SMME, ASAB, SEECS, NBS, SADA, SCME and more. So in a way, we’ll be offering everybody a sneak peek into the ‘idiosyncrasies’ of every department. What’s more, if you feel like contributing, you are always welcome to share your ideas and write for us!
In this section we’ll chronicle those moments, when you’re sitting in some class or watching a video and you encounter those small tidbits that really excite you when you learn about them. Those moments when you feel like you’ve taken a few steps forward in understanding the world around you and how everything is so intricately linked to everything else.
Picking the Author’s Brain
No, we are not announcing a campaign to go about in search of authors and take out their brains from inside their skulls. We are instead going to search for bestselling science-related books, and bring their content to you in a condensed and lucid form so that you don’t have to spend so much time going through them yourself! So, saving your time AND gaining some valuable knowledge and insight. Now that’s what hitting two birds with one stone really means!
The NSS Events
It’s a shame that we can’t make our events start and never end. As they say, all good things must come to an end. However, we’re going to write recounts and descriptions of all of NSS’ amazing events that will give those that were present a memorable trip down memory lane, and for those who were not, something to look forward to!
