Student friendly?

Belfast students, one of which I am myself, have tended to get a very bad press in recent months, as evidenced by the furore today over the suspension of a QUB student for "lewd" behaviour. However I was glad to see a bright spot on the horizon for once with news of an inclusive St Patrick's day celebration for students taking place in a Presbyterian church . I wish those organising this event well and I hope it is well attended. 'Good news' stories such as these rarely get an airing in the media and I hope that the celebration prooves both that students and residents can live together harmoniously and also that St Patrick's Day is a not a cold house for Protestants.
