    I was going to ask why Frank was moved, but I've realised they're renovating his normal home

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    I went to orientation today and I actually really enjoyed myself.

    However, on my way out I picked up a copy of Grapeshot and I could barely read the headings without feeling nauseous. What's the general consensus on this publication around campus?

    I found it so explicit and vile but I am a conservative.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    So it was Orwell being noisy in the library! (I was the one giving off the massive death stares. Hi!)

    As for Grapeshot, I've never actually seen a copy in the stand at E4A. But even then, it's a student magazine yes? So probably people who want to be journalists writing about whatever "interesting" topic they want to talk about. Obviously they are free to write about any topic of their choosing, and some people will not agree with that content.

    Personally, I just follow MQ pages on social media to keep up with what's happening around campus. It's not really my cup of tea either, so I just follow what i like.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Not a real fan of Grapeshot, most of the times I've picked it up haven't found anything that grabbed me. Still think its important that the University has a "free" press on Campus. The Uni does restrict it from publishing articles from time to time (e.g weren't allowed to run an article on campus wide rape and harrassment, and have been restricted on gaining access to the src meetings) and recently the Uni has forced a Grapeshot editor to step down.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Does anyone have any idea of how to cite a published article entirely on the commentary of another author? The entire article is the commentary https://www.lego.com/en-us/aboutus/n...struction-play

    This is in Harvard Style. I have a feeling in-text citation is (cited in [publishing author, date]) but I'm not entirely sure on the reference list format.

    I'd probably cite it as a blog in this case, but depending on your tutor for that subject if you email them, they may respond quickly.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    I swear the more I read about tax for my assignment, the more confused I get.

    I think my assumptions and reasoning sounds logically...
    or maybe I'm deluding myself :/

    Exclamation Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Hey guys, I recently got an offer at MQ for Mechanical Engineering, but I'm wondering what everyone's outlook on the engineering faculty is like in 2017?

    I generally like maths but I don't do physics as a HSC subject which is a big part of engineering, so I'm sort of lost on what to do. Engineering seems 'fun' and decently stable long-term investment for my future, but is MQ's engineering reputable? Please help

    Yeah Ive heard, but apparently it is accreddited by Engineering Australia. However my main goal is to at least get into UTS Engineering. Thanks

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    I'm afraid i don't know much about Engineering at MQ either!

    I do know that MQ deliberately only focuses on a small area of engineering (Mechanical/Electronics etc) because it allows them to focus on delivering this well.

    Obviously a lot of people choose places like UNSW because they gave a good engineering rep. But a lot probably choose disciplines like Civil and Petroleum because of their popularity.

    I think if you did study at MQ, you'll find the teaching experience is quite good because of the small, technological focus rather than catering to all engineering disciplines.

    Which is closer? But I'd probably agree and say UTS engineering > MQ Engineering.

    However we don't have trimesters which you might like?
