Sydney Uni has a fairly specific enrolment procedure, so it’s good to have some information about what you have to do if your away!

The best things in life are sometimes rather expensive, I mean, 1965 Ford Mustangs and holidays in the Greek Islands don’t pay for themselves. So how do you do lead this lifestyle as a student??? The good old part time job….

Well my Christmas carol CDs are out, I've placed my order with Santa (we really needed to talk this year) and I've eaten enough candy canes to pay for my dentist's holiday again. Yep, it must be Christmas. To everyone who has visited the blog, I wish you a very Merry Christmas. You should definitely be celebrating the end of what has certainly been an awesome but tough year for you all. Congrats and bring on that Wham! Christmas song, Cath!

Love Lauren

I am unashamedly in love with this place. I can often be seen wearing my fashionable pink Sydney Uni hoodie on a cold day, or even a bloody hot one. I attempt to convince people to enrol - even my Mum, who has a full-time job and no desire to go back to uni. A lot of you are probably wondering which uni to go to - it's a tough choice, I know. So I'm going to make it a little easier, by letting you in on the best things about Sydney Uni.

One of the questions I get asked all the time is, "How many hours do uni students actually spend at uni?"

Contrary to popular belief, students do regularly appear on campus! Yep, it's true. Just how often you will appear on campus depends on your degree. To help you out, I asked some of my friends to tell me how many hours a week they spend here!

…It’s the end of the world as we know it…Michael Stipe is one of my favourite musicians. But sometimes his lyrics are as offbeat as his hair is thick and full. It’s not the end of the world! Stop this nonsense right now – you have alternatives, you really do.

If uni and high school were suburbs of Sydney, right now they’d be Cronulla and Maroubra. They’ve got a bit in common, but once you look closely, they’re worlds apart….

Starting uni is like starting high school all over again.

Except your high school probably didn’t have its own postcode, and it probably didn’t have over 30 000 students.

So starting uni is a tad overwhelming: big deal, you knew that, right? Like a bad haircut, it’ll take a week to settle down, but once you get used to it…no worries.

So the general consensus is that uni students are…thrifty. This is a euphemistic way of saying that we will go out of our way to save every penny we can. It’s in our blood, we can’t help it. As you will soon be bona fide uni students, read on for my tips on how to save your hard-earned dosh here at Sydney…

Live bands on campus keep you rockin' during your holidays!

Manning Bar on the University's main campus has some great acts. Last
tuesday saw punk ska band Less than Jake take the main stage and they rocked
the packed out venue. One of the best reasons to head along to the Union owned
bar is the subsidised prices for Union members! Thank you USU!

Next year is going to be a huge year for live acts at Syney Uni so get excited!
Some of the most exciting local bands got their first gigs in Sydney uni so the
band competitions are a must see.

Information Day is a good chance to come down and talk with Faculty Representatives and Students about what courses you want to study. By talking to the experts, we can help you find the course that you will love.

I must start this entry saying that I am currently listening to the 12th Man, so if there are really poor references (such as the title), I am sorry. Well, you have the UAI, your marks, and probably about 400 questions about courses. The best place to get answers for these questions is not from your second cousin twice removed from Western Australia, but the actual people who know. Info Day gives you the chance to sit down with Academics, Uni Reps and Students to discuss what you want to do, and to get the correct answers to your questions.

All in all, it had been a pretty decent party. Started off slowly, until word spread via the technological blessing and curse that is SMS.

Don’t let marks and uni enrolment sour the longest holiday you will have in your life.

Hey Charger, school finished in November, Uni Starts in March! What a holiday! While all those around you may start to gag at the amount of time your having off, there is that horrible little nagging thought in the back of your mind asking, ‘but what next?’ It can be really quite overpowering and stressful, but it really doesn’t have to be.

Changing preferences isn’t the hardest thing in the world, but a few handy tips never hurt anyone!

September seems so long ago, doesn’t it? It seems like an eternity for me, and I haven’t done the change up from school, to the HSC, to Schoolies, to the HSC results! So its not surprising that a few of you you might be thinking of changing your preferences, especially if you’ve just got your HSC results or if you are after an offer in the different offer rounds, so its good to know a bit more about the process.
