Well we didn't win Outstanding Support for Students this year (congratulations to Essex who did) but we did have a very fine evening. The University of Leicester did win Research Project of the Year though, for the discovery of the remains of Richard III (so I've no hat to eat).
Sandy Toksvig was an excellent host and @timeshighered did a great job with the tweets :)

Tonight is the Times Higher Education Awards and the University of Leicester is short listed for 2:
- Outstanding Support for Students (that's for us in the Career Development Service)
- Research Project of the Year (for the fantastic and extremely collaborative discovery of the remains of Richard III)
I don't know how we'll do in the former (we're up against Derby, Essex, Plymouth, Stirling and Sunderland) but I'm pleased to get short listed. I'll have some hat eating to do if we don't win the latter though.
It should be a good night (apart from the minibus ride home in the early hours of Friday morning).

The First 90 Days by Michael Watkins. So that's firmly on my reading list. Any other recommendations?
