What is a student journal?
A student journal is a collection of thoughts, feelings and recollections about life as a student. It can be completely private, or a record which you share with family and friends.
Why write a student journal?
Recording your experience of being a student is a nice way to reflect on a new chapter in your life and to keep track of events, feelings and thoughts. Also, it'll make very interesting reading in the years to come! It's also a great way to share new experiences with family members, other students and friends elsewhere.
A shared journal can be a great way for family members to stay connected. It's also a deeply personal way of capturing events and memories.
When should you start writing a student journal?
You can start writing a student journal at any time. It's never too late to start one, and you can keep writing a journal after you graduate.

Journals are very personal things and usually include thoughts and recollections on anything and everything that happens, including:
- Social life
- Relationships and dating
