Students at Randwick-based UNSW have broken records, The Footnotes can reveal.
More than 83 per cent of students assigned to classes in both the Sir Clancy Auditorium and Squarehouse have switched degrees to avoid a trek – which some have likened to the Kokoda Track.
“When my parents mentioned walking ten kilometres through the desert to get to school, I thought they were over exaggerating” Matt (19) a second-year student, and son of a UNSW Alumni, tells us. “A year sprinting to media classes in Sir Clancy Auditorium has given me ankle and knee problems.”
Students have cited the university’s construction work re routes as even an inadequate warm-up for the terrifying depth of Sir Clancy Auditorium.
Despite plentiful job opportunities afforded to those with UNSW degrees the journey to Sir Clancy Auditorium, has been deemed “not worth it”.
“I think I’m just going to do Marketing or Engineering or something,” Matt continues.
