I love Griffith Uni. The best decision I ever made was to come here!
First of all, Griffith Uni is such a great school. I’ve never felt so welcomed before. The lecturers are so great and want to help you as best as they can. You can tell they really care about their students. Griffith Uni is such a diverse school. There are students from all across the world. I’ve never been anywhere before with so many people from different countries. In every single one of my classes, there’s at least ten international students. I think it’s amazing, because not only do I get to learn about Australian culture, but I can also learn about other cultures at the same time.
Also, the domestic students here are so warm and welcoming. They are always interested in where I’m from, and what my background is. Students will always wave and smile at me even if I don’t know who they are. Everyone is just so friendly.
There’s always something to do here on campus. Griffith Uni offers many free activities including BBQ’s to free game days every week. You get to meet so many people at these events. It’s so fun! Studying at an Australian Uni is something I’ve always dreamed of. My dream has finally come true. The weather is perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a better study abroad experience so far. I love it here so much! I never want to leave!
