The MSA card actually gets you bugger all food discounts (except at maccas).
Its more useful for buying things from Sir Johns (bar) or tickets for monash events (oktoberfest, club events) or getting discounts off club membership.
As a vegetarian i can say the food at monash sucks. Meeting point might be tempting but i was talking to the microbiology (the study of things like bacteria, viruses and parasites) PhD's and they swabbed a lot of places around campus. You wouldn't want to know the variety of stuff they found at meeting point. The old asian lady who hands out the food is really stingey too...try get someone else to hand it out if you buy from there.
I bought vegetarian noodles from the place facing the menzies, the one with "a moment of trust" spray painted on the window. Had bits of meat everywhere though..
Try eat at some of the places not in the campus center (they exist, check your diary).
I was wondering...am I still allowed to join any clubs, now that Clubs Day has passed?
If its a sport club (taekwondo, soccer, ect) just show up. Especially if its a martial art club you have your first couple lessons free as a trial.
If its another kind of club (religious, faculty, ect) just show up at one of their weekly meetings or something and there'll tend to be someone who is part of the management of the club there and you should be able to get signed up.
I know for the anime and video games club (member of neither) you can just show up to their weekly stuff and sign up there.
