Mawson Lakes U week day

Howdy Ho

Joined into the travelling roadshow today and set up my table about 10:30 and it was go from there. It was good to meet such a cross section of students and staff. Stephen Trautwein, Fran and Grace helped me out at the table and kept me company so that I didn't have to sit at the table like a solitary fish. The Unilife organisers were great and I appreciate their welcome and assistance.

Personally, I enjoyed meeting the visitors to my table and people on the other tables as well, swapping emails and getting to know each other a bit better.

I had one of "those" awkward moments (later) when I bumped into a gentleman at the bus stop after the event, who had earlier been slightly 'taking the mickey' out of Christianity at my table. We acknowledged each others presence with a "oh, yes, you still exist in the outside world too" nod :)

To those who dropped by and said hello and are now looking here -thanks and hello to you!

u week

Unfortunately I wasn't able to make Magill campus today, you may have seen Mike P standing in for me.

See you at Mawson Lakes for U Week
