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

Get out there, meet people, join a club, study on campus if you can, you have nothing to lose by being involved and you have everything to gain. Your time at university is relatively short and finite, everyone is here to help from lecturers to your colleagues, make lifelong connections, get as involved as you can and remember to work efficiently with purpose.
