Hey guys! I am going to be your student services coordinator when you arrive in Australia. I just wanted to jump in and make a suggestion. I would bring your laptop if I were you. Griffith library and the village have computers to use but from experience, it is very very hard to find a free one unless you get there first thing in the morning and camp out all day. Your laptop also accesses the wireless anywhere on campus so it is a great thing to have! Also linens will be provided. Looking forward to seeing you all when you get here : )

Rules look strict in GUV.. register parties? Guests out by midnight? I hope they cant actually regulate that..

I actually met with the Australian ambassador to the U.S. this morning in D.C. He was really nice and said Griffith is the most successful of the modern universities in Australia. He also said we should always keep our heads on a swivel because Australians like to play practical jokes! ... and he apologized for the high cost of living.. he said America has more competitive markets than much of the rest of the world. Education and health care are the only things cheaper there. Destinations should be Ayers rock, great barrier reef (from Cairns), Canberra (if you like govt), and Sydney. I want to leave now.

Shaleen- Thanks for the advice for classes! He did forget to put the attachment on the e-mail.

I'm in GUV as well! 13 days and counting :)

So we have recieved our housing assignments. My mailing address is: Griffith University Village
96 Edmund Rice Drive
Southport, QLD 4215

Do yall have the same address? I would assume that is simply the main office address as opposed to our individual appartment numbers...
