    I'm ok with asians around the uni...most are shy and go about their own business, they're polite but I hate having them (the internationals) for group assignments.

    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    I hate that I'm in the physics theatre and then straight after in the biomedical theatre. I have no classes in the ASB =/

    I wish there was a little more diversity, but it doesn't bother me to much.

    International students and group work means it is no longer group work.

    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    I hate navigating the OMB, commerce/arts/law students might not know but some parts aren't accessible to others because of indoor walls which requires you to go to ground level and walk around before going back up. It's massively frustrating. I'm lucky all my classes seem to be around the ME building this semester (best building on campus, obviously).

    i don't like the polite bus drivers who slow down at the yellow light on the express buses when they easily couldve made the light.

    then there are those who punch the accelerator like no tomorrow. there sould be more of them.

    yeah but walking up and down the steepness of it a couple of times during the day can be a bit of a workout...

    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    How I got mistaken for an International Student when I wasn't even wearing the weird outfits/high heels the int. female students wear. Do I have a sticker on my forehead that screams "International Newbie" or something?

    Fuck man, even I'm starting to get annoyed at the sheer amount of asians and their (sometimes) lack of basic manners/courtsey. Is it possible to be racist towards your own race?

    Asians tend to forget that there are 40,000 other students at unsw, especially when they take up the entire width of uniwalk in groups and walk at literally 30 cm per second.

    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    Fobs are practically part of the UNSW campus environment. Even in highschool i knew of the high level of fob activity at unsw, it's pretty much renowned for it (but i must admit i was suprised at how high it was). They ain't really bad people they're just diffrent, diffrent cultures always means a diffrent perspective. Just because theyr'e diffrent (and at times get on your nerves) dosn't mean you go hating on them, we got enough hate in this world.

    wasn't going to post because alot of the stuff people have said you get used to and is not a problem anymore after half a semester or so (less people come to uni, wont be as crowded on campus, etc)

    but damn.. those asians that gather in a hugeass group of 10+ and just stand and block a common walking area
    i.e. that ramp bounded by the bookshop, scientia and faculty of science office they take up the whole way and leave only one lane for two directions of walking traffic and clog the whole place up

    nothing against asians, but at unsw the maths isnt on their side
    since 99% of the people here at asians, if someone does something inconsiderate / pisses you off, chances are they are asian

    it's not, quite a lot of local students speak "asian" with others. From my experiences it's mostly cantonese (I estimate 90+%), occasionally mandarin and today I think I heard some jap

    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    - Taking almost 2 hours to get there by train+bus when i can drive there in 30 mins
    - It seems in my classes there are more people who are fluent in other languages than those that are in english
    - The mass number of people who are now in 4th year and still have no clue how to do things they were meant to have learnt in first year
    - Always seeming to get stuck with people that fall under the previous two points for group assignments. I honestly don't recall a single group project where i havent had to do the whole thing due to group members either not being to understand what the things actually asking you to do, or just plain not having a clue how to do it.
    - Idiots who not only keep their phones on loud, but then crawl under their desk while in a tute or lecture and proceed to answer it if it rings
    - 3 hour lectures
    - Way too many international students
    - The fact that i can never make a damn timetable without either having all the subjects clashing or having 3-5 hour gaps between classes
    - People that cut in line for bus queues
    - People that dont have tickets for buses and try to get on without one, then act ignorant about it when the driver asks them to scan their ticket
    - People that speak so damn loud
    - Theres always one person in every class who has to display to everyone that they either already know the work or think they're smarter than the rest. You know theres always at least someone that falls into this category. The type that'd fake falling asleep, ask questions they already know the answer to to somehow display to the lecturer they know stuff that hasnt been covered eg 'Cant you make a function onto by restricting its codomain?' Yes you idiot, you learn that shit in year 11, no need to repeat it in a 4th year subject.


    I'll add more later, have to head off to uni now -_- Note this is probably more of a 'what i hate about uni' than 'what i hate about UNSW'
