Applications to be a 2015 o-week host are now open! This is a super opportunity to volunteer and get involved with things at uni. I’ve volunteered in the past and really enjoyed it.
If you need a place to charge your laptop/phone/other electrical items – did you know there are secure charging lockers around campus you can use?
Secure laptop/phone charger lockers are great because you can leave your things to charge, go away to do something else, and come back to it later.
Possibility one of THE most irritating things in a library, is when people leave their pens and books on tables as a way of reserving a table. Instead of doing that, why not book a study room online?
You can book study rooms in libraries through the ‘BookIt’ system. These rooms are perfect for study groups! Here’s a step by step tutorial on how to do it. It’s all online, and it’s super easy.
Well done to the Arts and Science committee for throwing 2 awesome balls! Instead of writing up 2 separate posts about arts and science ball, I’ve combined them into the one to make life easier.
Strangely, I am feeling somewhat calm in the middle of this madness…which in turn is causing me some anxiety because I’m never this ‘together’ during mid semester. It’s a really weird feeling.
Edit: Lecture recordings should be working now! Also, some lectures may not have been recorded between 11am Tues 9 September – 12pm today Wed 10 September. More info about that here: http://go.unimelb.edu.au/pe5n
FIX THE LECTURE RECORDINGS.
FIX IT NOW.
I’m not sure if lectures have been recording since the system went down yesterday evening, because my lecturers haven’t been able to get the recording thing working today.
In the meantime…
Welcome to the September edition of Jobs on Campus!
This page will be constantly updated when I come across a job openings at uni. Stay tuned for more!
Full disclaimer: I am running with More Activities! in the student elections this year.
Student election is possibly THE WORST week on campus. You hate it, I hate it, we all hate it.
Nevertheless, student elections ARE important as they shape who represents us next year and they have some power over where our SSAF goes to. So I would strongly encourage you to vote.
If you’re thinking of applying for exchange, you’ll want to read this blog post! This post was written by 2nd year Arts student, Reanna Clark who is now off on exchange. She also runs her own awesome blog, You’ll Move Mountains. Check it out!
Bored with life at Melbourne Uni? I can’t imagine you would be, but if you have an itch to explore the world during your time here, then Global Mobility is your answer!
The Global Mobility website offers all the information you need about getting the most out of your UniMelb experience with an international focus. While the site does offer information about single overseas subjects, today I will be focusing on the application process for exchange.
Trust me when I say it is a long, complicated process! However, it looks as if Global Mobility has changed and the process is now mostly online! You young whipper snappers don’t have to kill a million trees like I did back in my day.
If you’re looking for a quiet, cosy place to unwind – try the Environments and Design Student Lounge.
This area is tucked away on the ground floor of the Baldwin Spencer building, and is easily missed by many. I stumbled across this lounge by accident! I was trying to find an alternate entrance to my lecture theatre.
Am I right to say that this is usually the time of semester when things start to get out of hand?
There’s about 10001 things on my to-do list, assignment due dates around the corner, the never ending summaries to write up…
Heads up, these are 2 important dates you should be aware of.
Sunday 31 August – Census date
This census date means it’s the last day to withdraw from your standard semester 2 subjects without having to pay for the subject. It also when you pay your fees.
I go into more detail about census dates and how to pay your fees in previous blog posts. There’s a step-by-step guide on how to access your ‘statement of liability’ that tells you how much money you need to pay, and how to pay the amount. Check em out :)
Friday 26 September – Withdraw without fail
This is your last chance to withdraw from standard semester 2 subjects without getting a fail grade on your academic record.
What’s the fuss with the census date? Here is what you need to know about it.
We say it every semester, but it’s crazy how fast the semester is flying by. I don’t even know where the past 4 weeks have gone! It’s all been a big blur to me.
Things in Daphane-land are going well. This semester is shaping up to be one of my favourite/most enjoyable semesters at uni, which is just what I needed after semester 1, aka the worst semester in the history of uni. My faith in uni and everything has been restored!
Here’s a day in the life of a uni student, as told by my kitty.
