Today I can announce the winner of a shiny new laptop. Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter the giveaway. It’s been wonderful to read your entries and I wish everyone the best of luck with their continuing studies.
Now for the moment you’ve been waiting for. The winner of a feature-packed HP dv5t laptop, 500Gb external hard drive, HP all-in-one printer, and media dock is…
Aron Willis at the University of Sussex
Congratulations to Aron, who is studying Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Aron says his workload varies (sometimes no work due in, but other times several assignments are due at the same time). Understandably, Aron would like the work to be spread more evenly. Well, I can’t change the dates your work is due in, but I can congratulate you for being the lucky entry to be picked at random for winning a fantastic prize package, thanks to HP.
I’m also able to give away an HP Protect Messenger Bag to four runners up, so there’s a bit more prize giving to go. Hackcollege recently described the bags as having “enough room for your old craptops and more padding than a helmet”. And if you don’t have a ‘craptop’, I’m sure you could carry other stuff in them too!
The runners up, who all win one of these bags, are:
- Anna Manasova (University of Cambridge)
- Rebecca Wallace (Napier University, Edinburgh)
- Donetha Sanders (Liberty University, Virginia)
- Mandy Bradley-Wilson (Lincoln University)
It’s been a pleasure to be a part of the HP Freshman 15 Laptop Giveaway. Today marks the end of the promotion, as TheUniversityBlog was the final site to participate. It’s been great. Thanks to the other brilliant sites that played their part and helped make some students very happy.
Don’t forget about the sites you may have come across for the first time as you enjoyed this laptop giveaway. For one last time, here’s a recap of the sites who took part:
- Poorer Than You

It’s been a great month and I hope we can do something like this again. But for now, that’s it from the HP Freshman 15 Giveaway. Congrats to all the winners.
