UC’s efforts to position itself as a uni for thickies has advanced according to the Canberra Times with a bizarre cricket sponsorship:

The University of Canberra has reaffirmed its sporting focus with the sponsorship of Big Bash League cricket team the Sydney Thunder.

Former Australian batsman Mike Hussey was in Canberra on Friday for the announcement, which will see the UC logo on the Thunder playing strip and signage at home games at ANZ Stadium.

In fairness to UC, they sacked staff and introduced paid parking when the former Govt announced higher education funding cuts to fund Gonski.

Now those cuts have been blocked by the Senate, they’re swimming in cash!

What, you thought they might actually do something to help their students did you? Pfffft.
