It’s a dark and nebulous time at Murdoch University when anonymous submissions to Facebook page Confessions at Murdoch call out “commie scumbags” and “red fascists” and call for the defunding of the Murdoch Communist and Socialist Club.
Let’s face it; being a student is hard enough without the added stress of financial, academic or health worries. Your brain is getting stuffed with new ideas on a daily basis, your flesh sack of a body seems to always require nourishing with edible matter, and deadlines incessantly approach much like the inevitability of death only much more tangibly. So it’s no surprise that sometimes we could all use a little help to keep us going, and that’s where Student Assist steps in.
In a statement, Murdoch said they were “encouraging unit coordinators to gather a critical mass of students in seminars, ideally between 25 and 45 attendees”. Yes. Twenty-five to forty-five students per class. There won’t be cuts to units, lectures or tutorial time; just to the number of tutorials being offered.
The 24/7 Learning Common on level 2 of the Geoffrey Bolton library, long known as the bane of any student unwise enough to have a laptop with a non-infinite battery life, has been completely refurbished.
