MailBombGraphic-EventBeing an external student can be a real pain.  i keep getting all these wonderful Coming Events Announcement emails about all the wonderful free stuff to go and see and do on campus but i can’t exactly get over there at Murdoch.  It all sounds so great!  For instance, if i had my druthers, i’d like to go and see: Learning interactively for Engagement: Meeting the pedagogical needs of students from refugee backgrounds this coming Friday.  It sounds really interesting!
