A week ago I went to a KickSTART opening session and saw at least 200 new students in one lecture room. Some of them were more nervous than others, but all of them were proud to be starting their journey at university.
Monday was the first day of Orientation (O Week), and there were so many new students going around. I had the privilege of meeting many of them at the Welcome Tent at Gardens Point campus, and could not be more excited to share what happened!
Everyone knows the classic things you should do to get ready for a semester of university; buy your books, register for classes and pretend like everything is ok.

It’s been almost four years since my high school graduation and the more I think about it, the more I realise that what I’m feeling now is exactly what I was feeling back then. There’s a sense of joy mixed with a tingling of uncertainty. An air of trepidation with a dash of elated screaming thrown in. Read more
Each semester, QUTopia is an event held over two market day weekends to provide real and practical experience to business students who are studying marketing.

Happy International Coffee (or caw-fee as that girl from one of the older QUT ads says) Day!
Where would we be without our morning cups of goodness? You will be sure to find someone in the 9am lecture clutching on to one for dear life, whether it be a flat white, white choc mocha, skinny cappuccino or soy decaf extra-hot chai latté. Read more
Yet another four weeks of due-date and reading list reprieve in winter time. Opportunities to layer clothing. Excuses to upsize your hot beverage to prevent hypothermia taking hold of your hands. Ground hog days of disorientation when street lights flick on in the middle of peak hour. You’re probably sick of the holidays and glad to see the back of them, yes? JUST KIDDING! Read more
