True life tales at the Living Library
Stories will come to life when human ‘books’ from a range of different backgrounds and experiences are available to ‘borrow’ at Fisher Library. Listen to true tales from people facing racial, religious or gender discrimination. #livinglibrary
From campus to Congress
Combining social justice with career experience, 10 Sydney students are making a difference at Australia’s First People’s Congress through an internship program where they are contributing to policy changes.
Success brewing on the rocks
Like many others, Food and Agribusiness student Rhys Raymond-Jones cooled off this summer with a few refreshing beverages. Only Rhys was completing an internship with the Rocks Brewing Company, so his beer sampling was in the name of professional experience!
