What advice would you give to students starting out at the University of Adelaide?

Get involved - join a club and go to events, hang out with your friends on campus and meet new people

Study hard - go to in person lectures and tutorials, submit your work on time and don't take your education for granted

Take every opportunity - speak in lectures, say yes to being on that club exec and apply for that study tour

Look after yourself - have a rest day, relax on the beach/go for a hike/play a video game, and try not to pull all-nighters on the regular
