Musings of a graduating student nobody asked for.

Vote of No Confidence? (5th MSC, Summarised)

At the end of Week 11, the post-assignment, fatigue-ridden MUSA members gathered one more time before the semester wrapped. Mr. President started off by giving an update on the current WiFi situation. Students can expect newer access points by the end of May, or early June. Health checks on the Wi-Fi connection are also carried…

Styling and Photography Workshop by MEC

Thanks to Hollywood, most of us seem to be entrenched with the idea that photoshoots are just fun and glamorous, nothing else.

The resignation of a MUSA member, Monga’s Instagram affair, and after-hours learning spaces – bring them on. President Thush starts off with a report…

J – Jaywalking Who cares if there’s a well-built, elevator *and* escalator-equipped overhead bridge that links the main entrance to the BRT station and the shoplots of Sunway? A big part of Monash culture is a real-life simulation of Crossy Roads, where out of ‘convenience’ and pure laziness outweigh the risks of jaywalking across four…
