This is just a quick post to let you know that I will be out on a personal adventure this weekend and will be returning on Monday 25th. So if you send messages/emails/comments to me during this period – you may not receive a response. It’s not because I don’t love you or anything, it’s just a reception thing!
Last week I was down on French Island to assist with the trapping of Bandicoots as part of an ongoing conservation project (see my previous post). And this weekend I’ll be camping out in Yarra State Forest to help out with an ecological monitoring program involving reptiles! Woo! Mind you I am taking PUBLIC TRANSPORT to Yarra Forest. Hello 2 hour commute! Continue reading “Daphane’s out on research…again!”
The Safer Community Program is making our university a safer place! As part of their initiative, they have created a nifty app called UniSafe which is available for free on both android and apple mobile phones.
What’s on the app?
There’s lots of important information on the app. Along with security’s numbers, you can check out support services available on campus such as counselling and psychological services, disability liaison, international student support etc. There’s also personal safety tips on there, you can call for a security escort if you feel unsafe walking around campus and so much more!

If you’re a first year undergrad student commencing in 2013, you may have already been contacted from someone from Student Connect to organise a 30 minute appointment with a Student Development Advisor! If not, don’t worry – they’re still in the process of going down their list.
Have you heard of the university’s latest creation?!
You can now download an app to view the LMS on your phone, tablet, ipad…you name it! (if you don’t know what the LMS is, check out my previous post here). It is a faster way to access your LMS, and you can also access the lecture recordings through the app too!
UPDATE: The Student Union is now in charge of organising the Harlem Shake fiasco, and it’s now the 26th March at South Lawn. Meet at 12.30pm for a 12.45 start. Beg your host leader to take you there!
You’ll probably sick to death hearing all about the Harlem Shake…but a little bird has told me that we will be doing our very own Harlem Shake on campus! Jump on board, get some props/costumes, and get your best dance moves ready!
The title says it all, this will be my review of BIOL10004: Biology of Cells and Organisms!
Where oh where to begin…
Well, for starters – this is a level 1 science subject that is offered in semester one! You can do this subject as a breadth if you’re studying Arts, Commerce, Environments and Music. You cannot do this subject if you’re in Biomed!
I’ve just returned from a trip to French Island, volunteering to help with some research on the endangered Eastern Barred Bandicoots. And yes, I have been handwriting several blog posts as promised and they’ll be posted up here shortly!
The trip up to French Island was an interesting one. I’ve never ventured to that side of town by myself before, especially on public transport! I had to catch a tram, train, train and a ferry to get there; and in total it was roughly a 2 hour commute. Continue reading “Home sweet home!”
Just so you don’t freak out and wonder why I haven’t posted anything in the coming days…it’s not because I’ve run out of ideas to blog about! And it’s not because I don’t love you anymore! I will be out volunteering on French Island to assist with the research of the endangered marsupial, Eastern Barred Bandicoot! They’re a strange little critter, check out their pointy … Continue reading Daphane is out on research! (12 Feb – 15 Feb)
