10 April
Start-up catch-up
Each year a new generation of entrepreneurs passes through our on-campus start-up programs… but where are they now? We caught up with some of last year’s success stories to find out what they’ve accomplished so far.
It’s Pride Week
Celebrate pride and diversity at the USU’s Pride Week Festival from 11 – 13 April. Help light up Eastern Ave with a chalk rainbow, drop by Hermann’s for Queer Karaoke and test your knowledge of the history of the Queer movement.
You knew them when…
“Imagine The Tonight Show – hosted by a man being attacked by bees” … that’s the tagline for a new late night show about to hit our screens, starring some of our very own students. You might recognise the likes of Aaron Chen, Jenna Owen and Victoria Zerbst from University revues, but now you can catch them on ABC2’s John Conway Tonight from 16 April.
Gutsy win for Sydney Uni cricketers
After batting through a colossal 151 overs, Sydney Uni’s first-grade cricketers held on to deny Bankstown a win, securing the Belvidere Cup (as NSW Premier Cricket first grade premiers) for the ninth time. Keeper Ryan Carters starred for the Students, scoring a stoic 110 in a grueling nine-hour marathon to see out the innings.
