A foreign student’s eye view of Canberra and O-week

johnboy 14 February 2009 5

Here’s a cute blog post by a new arrival in town and Australia with O-Week just happening.

    All right, moving on with my OZZY life, after enrolment, we packed up and started heading back to good old Sydney.

    “Wait, what bout orientation week ?”
    Cousin, “Aiyah, Ben. Orientation are for geeks. You don’t need to attend it.”
    Me, “OK..then how am I gonna know where my classes are gonna be at ? Or where the library is ? Or the toilet ? (ok maybe not the toilet )”
    Cousin, “ Haha, no worries, on the 23th, choose a nice asian chick student walk up to her and say hi im new here, would you mind showing me around the campus ?”

I think he’ll fit right in.

Also interesting to see good reviews for the new orange monstrosity Unilodge which is dominating western Civic.

And if you’re a “nice asian chick student” keep an eye out for this chatup line.

yes you can attend o-week. but 99% of the drinking events will consist of 18-19 year old punks who think flipping their collars is the new trend. (is it?)

are 35 year old post grads allowed to go to o-week or would that be awkward?? the text msg that accompained my acceptance of offer said o-week starts next week…

Did anyone notice that on the 23th he needs to find a hot asian chick !?

He surely will fit right in – but pretty sure the 23th may never come, he should aim to ask on the 23rd instead.

Yes, I remember when I went to Bondi Beach a few years ago expecting to see a lot of old blokes with big fat guts, but instead there were all these beautiful people there.
