A place for all students and non-students alike to discuss and bitch about assignments, educational choices and campus life.

Tourism, haven't done any of those courses yet, but that's what I'm hoping to do.

At UoN there's 11(I think) core courses that everyone doing Business has to do, then the remaining 13 are for majors/double majors. Hopefully by the end of this semester I'll have completed 7 core courses

I follow the UoN Stalkerspace page and People Sleeping at UoN page. The Stalkerspace one used to be good, then people started advertising in it, and the latest FB update has made the page dead.

Do you guys have iconic figures at your unis? We have the 'Dapper Gentleman', Rasta-man, Rubber Ducky-Tie guy and Afroman (this guys Afro is the biggest I've ever seen, it's beautiful :lol: )

Ahh sweet! Just had my 3AB economics and 3AB music (Theory, practical was on friday) mid-year exams today. Had to write two essays on Sacred and Secular Cantatas in Baroque to Modern 21st century music and then two essays on Exchange Rates and Balance of Payments in Australia... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Serious time now: What is it like after school is done? I seriously am having problems of what to do, don't know what to do at Uni :/

If you haven't figured I am into music/arts and I have my band and it would be a blessing to become full-time after school (possible) but then again I gotta be have a plan B. I am keen on either contemporary music, media/communications/(preferably sports)journalism or straight up teaching (Prim/Sec don't really mind).

I am considering options staying here in Sleepy old Perth, going over East (Don't know much about Uni's over east) or even going abroad (USA, Europe, Asia)... Any advice would be greatly appreciated. My school has like open days and stuff to UWA and Curtin Uni but being in one of those elitist boys schools they just showcase Medicine, Law etc. (Not having a dig, just not my passion) so like I am sorta left out...

If any experienced friends of life could help that would be greatly appreciated just to at least share some stories or whatever :)

Big day for you Dj, hope you nailed em mate! I wouldn't come to Sydney, the cost of living is just too high for a student living out of home.

I knew of a guy who went over to Canada, picked up a job and effectively did a TAFE music course for a year. He had a sweet time from a life experience perspective and also got to feel his way into musical life after school.

I miss the days when I coasted year 12, could still do well but still thought it was such a tough year. Nek minnit you're in university going an engineering degree being nostalgic for the school days and realising how easy and simple life was then. I love telling this to HSC students and just getting that blank stare like I suddenly shape-shifted into two aliens. But its true.


Agree with that, I just don't miss school from a people perspective. A uni lifestyle with year 12 work? Yes please!

Year 11 for me, basically the same stuff you do but easier. I'm assuming you do VCE?
