Has it all gone to shit? Student Assist is here to help!

By Aaron Angel

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.

Interview: Endeavour Games at Murdoch

By Roland Belford

METIOR will be highlighting student run clubs, programs and initiatives on campus this year. If you would like your club, group, event or whatever profiled, contact Roland.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START THE GROUP?

The inspiration for the club mostly came after the drive to bring back Humans vs Zombies (HvZ). Our staff came to the decision that as a ‘gaming club’, we could organise or help out with other games that create the same sense of competition and fun that HvZ always has. That’s also where the club name came from: we’re endeavouring to get people together, having fun and competing.
