Students prepare for future learning at CQUni O Week

Bundaberg university students were today introduced to their local campus as part of O Week at CQUniversity.

It was a mixture of learning the ropes as well as some fun as the new 2020 students made their way through the campus on University Drive to get in the know about uni life.

Michael Bryden headed along to Orientation Week and said he had enjoyed touring the campus and finding out more about his Bachelor of Digital Media degree.

“I am doing this degree because I want to expand on my skills, learn how to edit properly and learn how to do animation and use Photoshop better than I already do,” he said.

“I think it provides me with some pretty good opportunities to get into the digital media industry.”

While Michael said he wasn't entirely sure about what career path he would like to take, he was certain that the CQUniversity Bundaberg campus was the right place of study for him.

“I chose to stay here to study because I like it in Bundaberg,” he said.

“It is the type of university for me.”

Friends Matilda Harman and Lara Gardiner also participated in O Week and said they had been learning all about what was expected for the year ahead.

“We have been touring the campus and getting to learn about what is happening,” Matilda said.

“I like that it is like a community.”

Both students said CQUni Bundaberg was a great place to undertake their studies.

“I am studying nursing,” Lara said.

“I have always had an interest in helping people. CQUni is close to where I live.”

“I chose to stay in Bundaberg because all of my friends and family are here and its a better place to study for me,” Matilda added.
