‘LOVED IT SO MUCH!!', ‘It was amazing and one of the best experiences in my life. So sad to leave. Thank you.', ‘It was AWESOME!!!'
These are just some of the rave reviews posted by Campus Challengers at the conclusion of this year's one week, live in, experience UWA event.
Climbing the Winthrop Hall clock tower to get a bird's eye view of the university campus and beyond to the Swan River and the Perth city skyline was an OMG experience.
17 academic activities challenged the students to explore different areas of learning and the variety of courses on offer at UWA. For example:
Maths - "The professor was so cool; he was inspirational with his love of Maths', ‘it was awesome.'
Radio Astronomy - ‘well interesting', ‘exciting,' ‘very interesting and informative'.
Law - ‘I wanna be a lawyer now!' ‘awesome show', ‘love Law'.
Architecture and Arts - ‘awesome'. ‘my favorite thing,' ‘so inspiring'.
Libraries - ‘OMG I love the Science Library', ‘cool libraries', ‘books!!! great!!!', ‘loved all the books!'
Physics - ‘awesome', ‘legendary', ‘FUN FUN FUN'.
Multimedia - ‘SO MUCH FUN!' ‘had loads of fun'
Environmental Engineering - ‘really exciting', ‘very awesome', ‘learnt heaps'.
Campus Challenge is also about the people you get to meet who can help you along the way. This year, joining in the Campus Challenge experience were:
