ANU law students Uma Patel (wannabe journo) and Olivia Clarke (ANUSA Social Officer) are in today’s Australian, spouting some woefully bad hyperbole.
“ANU is a fate you chose but you cannot escape” they write, also complaining about the cost of airfares, the lack of beautiful buildings and historic graffiti and that nobody knew what Brian Schmidt won his Nobel Prize for (I guess they don’t speak to many people).
They pigeon hole students as either those escaping mum and dad, and those deluded enough to buy into ANU’s “so-called prestige.”
If you thought Myles Peterson’s piece in the Telegraph was bad, it pales compared to this. I think these two should be in the running for a mully. It’s an embarrassing piece that is already drawing stern rebukes from students.
