It’s the question everyone’s been asking – what’s going to happen to Unimelb Adventures once I graduate?
Well, it’s a great pleasure to announce that I’m handing the reins over to our new editors – Reanna Clark and Travis Lines! They have been fantastic Semester 1 sub-editors, and I’m confident they’ll do a killer job leading the way for Semester 2.
Both Reanna and Travis are in their final year of undergrad – Reanna is an Arts student and Travis is a biomed student. Please be nice to them when I disappear! My last day on the blog will be August 1 – the day of my graduation.
Here’s the extra exciting part – we are now recruiting bloggers to join our family in Semester 2!
After another week jam-packed with assignments, many of you may have missed what was going on campus. But never fear! We’re here to let you know what you might have missed.
Besides from the assignment-madness, Week 7 was a cracker of a week on campus. So much so, we’ve put together a digest of some things that happened over the week.
Here’s our Week 7 campus roundup:
We’ve found ourselves in an interesting time at the University.
The University is undergoing some major changes and Union House is one of them. But before I dive into Union House business, here’s some background info.
Time is flying so fast, everything is becoming a blur!
As we head into Week 5 of uni, we’re going to revisit some events that happened over last week.
With the help with our contributors, and curated by yours truly (Daphane here, hello!), here were some events that happened in Week 4:
“An even bigger win for Melbourne Uni students who, drunk on sparkling goon and their own self importance, are looking for a way in and out of the city proper.” – Herald Sun
Aww, thank you Herald Sun! (That was sarcasm, FYI.)
There’s been lots of chatter about a new railway station in Parkville for a while now. And as always, I’ve been very skeptical about it since it’s always been all talk but no action.
When Vice-Chancellor Glyn Davis announced on Twitter that Premier Daniel Andrews has confirmed plans for a new Parkville train station – I was honestly quite surprised (and very excited!).
Make welcome the newest building to unimelb: The Melbourne School of Design (aka the architecture building)!
Such a relief that there are no more of those annoying detours! Getting to Redmond Barry was an absolute nightmare during construction.
The title gives it away, but I have some very exciting news to share with you!
Books, books, the library wants your books!
To support the 2014 International Book Giving Day, the University Library will be donating as many books as they can to a number of very worthy organisations.
Remember how the university changed the exam schedule this semester? They are now looking for some feedback about those changes. Continue reading “Fill in the exam feedback survey!”
Yes it’s true! The university will be changing the names of three lecture theatres as of Monday 6 Jan 2014.
- Copland Theatre in Arts West Building will become Kathleen Fitzpatrick Theatre
- Basement Theatre in The Spot Building will become Copland Theatre
- Level Five Theatre in Doug McDonell Building will become Steve Howard Theatre
Hey all! This will be a super quick blog post. The university is looking at improving the scheduling and management of our exams & results, and they want to try a couple of changes this exam period. How does this mean? This could mean that our exam period may even be shortened, giving us a longer holiday! But then again…that means less time to cram … Continue reading Do you want a shorter exam period?
Greetings from Singapore ladies and gents! Yes I am on my holiday, but I’ve decided to squeeze in one blog post before I head out. (I’m a bit of a workaholic, I know)
Anyways, there was a big update to the LMS the other week, and I quite like the new look. It’s a bit more functional, and it looks “pretty” – so yes, it has my tick of approval :)
Here is what has changed! Continue reading “The LMS had a makeover!”
