Hear from USC students

  Amanda Fiedler, PhD School of Business and Creative Industries, Student Representative

   "I became a student rep to make connections with other students and because I believe the student voice needs to be heard in university decision making. Being a student rep has given me a community, a sense of achievement, and the opportunity to give back to USC."

   Olivia Hall, Bachelor of Nursing Science, Volunteer and Student Leader

   "I decided to become a student volunteer and leader at USC so I could open my horizons and meet new people. I enjoy volunteering at events on Campus so that I can meet new people and further engage in Uni life, volunteering allows me to learn things that I wouldn’t learn in other areas."

   Michael Tedge, Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronic) (Honours), Student Leader and Representative

   "I currently enjoy being a co-chair of the School Student Group for the School of Science, Technology and Engineering, volunteering at academic drop-in sessions, and I have also joined the Engineering Staff-Student Liaison Committee."
