Students at North Ryde-based Macquarie University have broken records, The Footnotes can reveal.
More than 83 per cent of students assigned to media, arts and music classes in Faculty of Arts building Y3A have switched degrees to avoid a trek – which some have likened to the Kokoda Track – to the westerly building.
“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 Macquarie Alumni, tells us. “A year sprinting to media classes in Y3A has given me ankle and knee problems.”
Students have cited the university’s train station as even an inadequate warm-up for the terrifying depth of Y3A.
“I think I’m just going to do Marketing or Econ or something,” Matt continues. “There’ll all grouped together and closer to UBar”.
