Those who have visited DCU within the last two years may be familiar with having their route blocked off by numerous construction vehicles or nearly bumping into a wall of wet paint. There is a universal sigh of relief as DCU's highly anticipated, new state of the art student centre is due to open just in time for the upcoming semester.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a phrase that has been around over 50 years but only now is it taking precedence all over the world. The College View recently reported that Irish businesses are at risk of being outmatched by their European counterparts due to their lack of AI integration. DCU significantly contributes towards the Irish utilisation of AI in its variants natural language processing, machine learning and computer vision.
It's possible to pay anything from €5 to €40 for a t-shirt but the price isn't everything. On a student budget, it's important to know that what you buy won't end up being a false economy. Why buy bargain €10 jeans once a month when a €50 pair would last longer than your course itself?

Fashion is different from music in the way that it's not as universally timeless. The most recently overcome fashion trends are always the cringiest.

Most original viewers would now fall in the age range of 17-25 whilst Drake and Josh are both 32 years of age. Finding the right mix in a revival such as this one will be difficult as, if it is targeting the original audience, Nickelodeon will no longer be a suitable platform.
In a world where artists seem to constantly compete with each other for the most show stopping concerts, sometimes it's nice to strip it back to the basics. Sunday October 14th saw Tom Odell, closely followed by his drummer, guitarist and bassist, casually walk onto a dark stage in Dublin's Olympia theatre to 1,620 fans.
