As we move well into the 2nd half of the first semester this year, it’s understandable that many students would be feeling the heat of the inconvenient times that assignments will become due or feeling stressed from preparing for exams in just a few weeks. I would like to wish all of my fellow students luck in their courses this semester and remember that if you need anything, we are always here. Our casework staff are more than happy (and competent) to assist you in anyway we can. This includes late submissions, time management strategies, tips on managing things at home and at work while studying (because everyone else seems to forget that we have lives outside of uni). Simply give us a call on 9660 5222 and make an appointment or just drop in during our ‘walk-in’ hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 1pm and 3pm.
Additionally, I would like to thank the people who have been in contact with me about their frustration with the new Student Card system, which was introduced this year. I compiled your emails and followed this issue up at Student Consultative Committee. The conversation is still ongoing and I will be in touch with those who contacted me when an update happens.
For this week though, the University will be looking for spaces on campus where our wireless signal might be low. If you know any spaces that have a low signal on campus please let us know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If there is anything else I can do for you during this busy time of semester, please let me know via email, as I understand that it is very easy to be stressed out from now until the end of semester.
