What is this thread for?
Welcome to the Monash University general chat thread. ;D This thread is for anything Monash-related. If you have general questions, ask them here. If you don't know where to ask something, ask it here. If you want to vent about your day at uni, do it here. If you want to chat about your subjects, do it here. Basically, whatever you want - this is the place for it. 👌

Who can post here?
Anybody! Most will be current students at the university, but even if you're considering studying here, you're absolutely more than welcome to post! Providing different perspectives is incredibly valuable.

Just note that to ask a question or make a post, you will first need an ATAR Notes account. You probably already have one, but if you don't, it takes about four seconds to sign up - and it's completely free!

Aww, I was thinking of starting a general chat thread for Monash, but I procrastinated.

My opening post would have been something like this (apologies to Russ):

"In the interests of equalling UniMelb, let's have a thread for discussion of our semester/subjects/university in general."
I always look a little lost.

Anyone know where the cheapest food is at Monash (non-veg or veg - doesn't matter)? With or without MSA card too (I have one) :)

Everything I saw was so expensive when compared to UoM :(

they're quite expensive :S

like i calculated it and it costs about $50-60 to print 1000 pages (500 sheets double side) - a friend of mine says you can print that in Malaysia for less than $10 :S

It's (what I think is called) the monopolisation, isn't it?

Let's have a protest, yeah? Like the one we did last year back at MHS...

:/

That was the dumbest protest ever. What was more stupid was that it worked.
