You guys must really be looking hard for a reason to procrastinate if you’re reading this.
A warm welcome to those new to UniSA or coming back for another year. The following are a snapshot of some the activities I’ve been pursuing over the last two months.
- USASA SECONDHAND BOOK MARKET
For those looking to buy or sell secondhand books, I’ve been working with USASA on plans to run physical stalls on each of the campuses (except Whyalla & Mt Gambier unfortunately) to help students browse through the books available in our USASA Secondhand Textbooks store ( look at their online store + more info in the link below)
With luck, we hope to have this up and running early this semester; or to trial it at the beginning of the next period.
I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and you are ready to start the new semester. Some of you might be impatient catching up with your friends, or making new friends for the new students.
You might wonder who is that person emailing you, well just a little introduction about me, as you will receive emails every month about my reports. I am Valérie the USASA (University of South Australia Student Association)International Student Representative 2016 (you can find my picture below). I am also the President of the African Society at UniSA. I am an international student from Mauritius (French, English and Creole spoken languages), studying Master of Design (interior architecture) at city west campus. As international student representative, I would be here to support the international students, and I am expecting them to contact me for any inquiries, issues, suggestions, questions, help etc… I will encourage everyone to contact me if there is anything they would like me to help with 🙂
How are you everyone? This is Nick the Postgraduate student representative. Sorry for a really late post of my activity report, but I was on my annual leave back to Hong Kong for the Chinese New Year. It was so cold there unlike summer in Adelaide, but honestly, I enjoy that more than the heat.
I am Tammy Masters the regional student representative. Mount Gambier is a regional town guys for those of you who do not get the opportunity to travel down this way (we do exist), just kidding. We pretty much have everything a metro life style has on offer, however, our resources are on a smaller scale. Prior to my recent sea change, I had lived in Melbourne for 14 years. I had forgotten just how tranquil a regional life style can be. Driving from place to place is just so relaxing now, I do not have to deal with gridlock traffic, due to someone breaking down in a freeway lane, no more paying for parking, and no more peak hour. However, I do miss the restaurants, the shopping etc.
I hope everyone had fantastic holidays catching up with friends and family enjoying their time off from their studies. As people are aware the new semester is starting soon. Some are dredging it and others will enjoy starting or coming back to Uni. Whether you are a first year and last year, University is a challenging but rewarding experience for all students who apply themselves. My commitment to students are of a paramount importance. As a student representative, I will represent all students interests to the best of my ability. In order for the best outcomes to be achieved for students, it is important that students are engaged and their opinions and views are respected.
I hope you all had a great new year! My name is Carey Moore and I am the 2016 USASA President.
