"One of the great things about the 'University Experience' is the process of discovery you go through as a student. The University of Adelaide has allowed me to learn more about myself in an environment that requires you to really question you assumptions.
The best part is that you can then re-shape your future direction in a way that aligns with your values. The people I've met and the networks I've built at Adelaide are unique and it's these relationships that will stay with me long after."
