Returning we have such features as our Freshers Diary. This year taking on two due to popular demand. 8LI(IZMP´W%HZSGEXI column is back to question Goldsmiths and the Studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Union. But more importantly this issue showcases some of the fantatic writing talent that have been contributing to The Leopard over the last few weeks. And, although we are just getting this year rolling weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure that they will get better and better. Our sports desk, with Dan and Pete, are already thinking about the second issue. While our Lifestyle and Culture editors Lucie and Nindy and our Music editor Joanie had so much sent into them that it could not all feature in this issue. For this we apologise. This issue is covering some of the big issues happening on campus like the closure of NatWest and the goings on at New Cross Library. We are, however, always open to submissions, suggestions and slaggings off. If you are interested in getting involved please contact us on leopard@su.gold.ac.uk

COMMENT & OPINION Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t We Be Friends?

We are students, not International students By Nindya Atmodipoero Perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s due to my mild perfectionism, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m one of those weird people who dedicate too much FRQWHPSODWLRQRQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWVHQWHQFHRI every writing piece because I always EHOLHYHWKDWĂ&#x20AC;UVWVHQWHQFHVGHWHUPLQH everything that follows. -XVW E\ UHDGLQJ \RXU Ă&#x20AC;UVW VHQWHQFH for example, people might get twice as excited to read the whole piece or vice versa, they might quickly decide not to go on to your second sentence. That is possibly why, most of the time I spend on typing down an article is ZDVWHGPHUHO\RQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWVHQWHQFH Nevertheless, this is not a literary DUWLFOHDERXWWKHLPSRUWDQFHRIĂ&#x20AC;UVW sentences, nor is this an article about relationship. Oh, actually come to think of it, this is indeed an article about relationship. But it is not about the romantic relationship. This is an article about the relationship between local and international students. Being an international student has always been familiar to me because I have experienced it since I was very young. One thing I have been noticing from these experiences is that there is always this â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;invisibleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gap between the local and international students. In other words, there is some kind of

Whilst this assumption is somewhat true, then there lies a bigger issue: why does it happen? Why do international students stick together with the people from their own country or with other international students? Is it them who do not want to mingle or is it the local students who are not really keen on socializing with international students? I believe this has to do with cultural differences. I am not going to elaborate on the possibility of lifestyle differences and contradicting values; something as simple as language barrier, for example, can already create a gap. Whereas different English language skills obviously create miscommunication, often, different accents can already create gaps and certain prejudices. Language skills can really make someone feels superior or inferior to others but to tell the truth, it is not something to fuss about. Now for my fellow international students, we cannot always blame the local students and/or the school if we feel like we are being discriminated. Tell me, how are you supposed to make friends with the local students if you are always in your own comfort zone? True, it is hard enough to settle in a new country, learn another culture and maintain good grades at the same time. Yet going to school abroad is not only about the academic achievement, but also the life experiences, and how you manage to overcome your fear of unfamiliarity. Another possibility why there is a gap between the local and international student is that perhaps, none of us feel like we have to interact with each other. Since it is unlikely that we will end up in the same work environment, as most international students will come back to their home country after graduation, why bother making connections? Well, although it can be said that university is a stepping-stone for your future career (in which it would marginalization of the international be great if you start networking with students. the people you might end up working Of course it all comes back to the with), you go to university to make individual whether s/he feels margin- friends with everybody! alized as an international student or Moreover, who knows, this could not but generally speaking, based on be our last chance to learn about my experiences and observations, another culture considering we to a certain extent, international might end up in a homogenized work students have always been discrimi- environment in our native countries. nated against. This discrimination Lastly, referring back to my opening can take many forms, from racial sentences, I think the same tenets discrimination (although less likely cannot always be applied for this to happen now, but still occurs some circumstance. time) to a sense of alienation in which 0RVWRIWKHWLPHRXUĂ&#x20AC;UVWVHQWHQFH² LQWHUQDWLRQDO VWXGHQWV FDQQRW Ă&#x20AC;W LQ Ă&#x20AC;UVWWKRXJKW²,VKRXOGVD\GRHVQRW with the society. establish the things that follow.

Anyway, after all that and a few other tricky incidents, we found Dream House #2. Number one was one of those â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;too good to be trueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; houses, which we bitterly pass on our way to uni every day. But this dream house, is great. The oven doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a suspicious drip coming from the kitchen ceiling, but otherwise itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a palace.

There were old TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, suspiciously stained duvets and bed frames, as well as more unusual things.A collection of Charles Dickens books and a mirror have become our coffee table and a slightly unstable fold up massage table, our sofa (itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very comfortable). A few weeks in, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve settled nicely. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve still not quite unpacked, met the posh looking neighbours or sorted out the gas bills, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll

Between all the reading and (obviously very responsible and GLJQLĂ&#x20AC;HG  GULQNLQJ WKHUH GRHVQ¡W seem to be much time left in the day. Though I have mastered the art of cheap food shopping. My top tip is that jam, a staple in every good toast based diet, is much more expensive than lemon curd. And everyone loves lemon curd! So save your meagre student loans comrades. Lemon curd for life. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also learnt that you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t join every society at the Freshers Fayre. ,WZLOORQO\Ă&#x20AC;OO\RXULQER[DQGPDNH you feel guilty that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather have a cheese toasty and cup of tea than do any of the exciting, healthy and revolutionary things on offer.

Through out time, playwrights and directors have been using theatre to FRQYH\GLIÀFXOWUHDOLWLHVLQDFUHDWLYH and sometimes subtle form. After visiting Bucharest, Richard Eyre, former director of the National Theatre, was struck by the startling similarities between the communist capital of Romania and Elsinore in Hamlet. Knowing that the state could not easily question the universality of Shakespeare, Eyre decided to take the play to Bucharest where audiences were captured by the parallel between the stage and their own reality. The theatre enabled them to channel their struggles and share in an

qualities that make up a functioning society. This more light hearted theatre arguably allows stressed audiences to reassess what really matters, even if that is simply giving up a couple of hours in their busy schedules to spend with friends or family at the theatre. Despite its varying forms, theatre as a whole has the power to transport the audience to a world where they are able to make sense of their situations from a removed position.
