Today I was at uni for 8.5 hrs and well, still didn't start uni........ Got there at 8:30 am, first "lab" was at 10, but I had to go do a few things before that. The lab was on according to the weekly view and Allocate (was expecting an intro or OH&S session), a lot of second years showed up to it along with our bunch of first years, and no lecture/demonstrator turned up. So the three hour lab (well not really a lab but still) was cancelled. That meant a 6 hr break untill a lecture in the afternoon at 4pm. So we went and played pool, tried to pass the time. We show up to the lecture (which again by weekly view and allocate was on) and again a lot of the second years shopwed up (it is a second level sub) and after waiting for 20-30 mins, well all left as no lecturer turned up again. So effectively I took 4 hours of transport today to waste 8ish hours and do nothing..........

Have a feeling since it was a the same subject that the lecturer/demonstrator called in sick Read below. So on my first day of uni, I didn't do anything............

It was my first day today too. Everything was fine, except I saw a dead mouse in the campus centre. I am no longer surprised by all the food poisoning stories.

Yeah, you should be able to, unless they have a limited amount of positions within the club.

Go and find the people from the club or head over wheree ver they are usually based and you should be able to sign up ;)

Never mind, beaten by TT.

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.

Map says Menzies. Somewhere in there
If you check the lecture theatre index, Humanities H1-H10 are in Menzies, D3 of map

Sweet, thanks. I'll be arriving 5 minutes before the lecture, so I don't have time climbing stairs trying to find it.
