I haven't lived in New Res before but I've heard from people that have lived there that its heaps good! Lotsa social life and opportunities for social activity, haha! Don't be nervous, don't worry... you will meet heaps of people and make heaps of friends from the dorms... I used to be anxious about it too last yr at the start coz I was a first yr but it was all for nothing haha and lotsa people are in the same position as you as well... most ppl have moved away from home for the first time so others are anxious as well!Ohh lol thats okk..
How is new res?? Is the social side good??
im nervous about starting- cause i know like no one their
Yeh I sure do... do journo.So is anyone now joining us at CSU this year?
btw lambers, you do Journalism? What's it like?
Got into it in early round luckily!
Is it really all that it's cracked up to be?
Does Chris McGillion get any nicer?
Haha thanks! Great help!Yeh I sure do... do journo.
I got in the early round last yr too haha.
It's pretty good... i love it! You get quite a bit of practical opportunities which is good, considering you're only a first yr. You get to go on the radio and read/write a story in the last semester, for example plus other group work with writing news stories. The first year is basically an introduction, but its still a lot of fun and you learn a lot. Chris Mcgillion is actually pretty nice... he's bluntly honest, but still a genuine guy.... he's pretty funny when you get to know him... but still scary/intimidating. As long as your hardworking, he'll be nice. Its when people are lazy and don't commit that he gets pissed off. haha. They're not too hard on first years though.... I mean Chris and Kay Nankervis (who you will also have for some of your classes). All in all, its a good course. You have 1 news-related core subject, and three other electives. COM130 (media production and presentation) is without a doubt, the worst one... haha! You still learn a lot from it though.
Hope my answer has helped
I got a letter the other day with like a student planner in it?hey has anyone got any confirmation letters or emails yet? on when to start and that?
