2010 welcome


I've just spent most of the beginning of this year moving house. The feelings and thoughts swirling around in my poor tired body remind me of what it was like being a tertiary student – the beginning of the year is all crazy with a lot of organizing, meeting with people, planning, trying to do everything on a shoestring budget. Often you need advice and practical help.

If this is you, then you’ve come to the right place. There is a lot of support if you need it. You can refer back to this page – because you never have to go it alone!

LSF = Lutheran Students and Friends
