We're looking from students currently studying in Leeds who come from all over the country (or the world!).

We'd like to hear from anyone, young or mature students, those with children, whether you're attending university or college, whatever your course.

All you need to do is e-mail a short diary to us approximately every couple of weeks to fit around your studies or partying.

You can write about absolutely anything, from toga parties to topical student issues - it's your site, so over to you!

And of course, your BBC diary will look great on your CV once you start looking for a job after uni...

What you need to do:

1. Send us a short paragraph of biographical information about yourself, together with a photo (in .jpg format).

2. E-mail a regular diary entry to us (say once a month, but it's up to you, quality is much more important that quantity!)

3. Diary entries can be accompanied by pictures, but please ensure that any images you send us are copyright free.

4. You can write about any subject you like that affects you as a student in Leeds. The only reasons we wouldn't publish a diary are matters of legality, taste and decency.

5. The e-mail address to send everything to is

Drop us a line if you need any more information, or just send your first diary entry in right away!

If you'd like to get invloved or want any more info please e-mail

We will, at your request, publish the diary anonymously.

If you don't want to write a regular diary, you could still send us your news, views and club/bar/gig reviews to or say something on our messageboards.
