The University of Melbourne is a public university located in Melbourne, Victoria. Founded in 1853, it is the second oldest university in Australia and the oldest in Victoria. The main campus is located in Parkville, an inner suburb just north of the Melbourne CBD. The university also has several other campuses located across Victoria
..and that’s what Wikipedia says.
But seriously, you would’ve gone there if you wanted that type of information. But on the Melbourne Uni Blog, you’ll find out the student perspective, things that aren’t published in the mainstream forms of media, the things that really happen.
What is this site about? Basically, I’m now an ex-student of The University of Melbourne, wanting to give both prospective and current students an idea of what life really is at this educational institution. What’s expressed here is solely my views, so don’t take them too seriously.
Sure, there’s the glossy brochures and open days which attempt to paint a positive picture of the university in your mind, so I’ll refrain from regurgitating any of that information in this blog.
Who are you? I’m now a former University of Melbourne student. I graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Commerce at the end of 2011. That’s as far as I’ll go in revealing my identity.
What kind of things will you post on here? Basically everything I noticed in university. From course & racial stereotypes, fashion, hang out areas, sub-cultures, a little bit of everything!
Why are you doing this? To give people an understanding of what it’s like being a student at The University of Melbourne. The focus will be on things that aren’t openly available on the internet, the type of information you attain if you actually attend the university. Plus, it’s a bit of fun, but then again, half the kids who attend that university don’t have any sense of humour so I’m expecting a lot of raging!
Do you care what people think of you or your blog? Not at all, I’m approaching this as a bit of fun, but if you lead a boring life where you regularly go through and pick out spelling mistakes and grammatical errors then dissect my posts and try to attack me, then by all means, do that, as long as it makes you happy!
Ohh but I think this blog is offensive. I couldn’t care less, nobody is forcing you to read it. Having a cry then trying to contact me about it isn’t going to change a thing.
