Anyone at University of Sydney? (help!!!)
I'm transferring to university of sydney to continue my major in spanish language and italian language electives.

I'm really scared coz I'm worried that I will find it hard to make friends. I'm shy. Also I will be moving out of my parents house for the first time and will (hopefully) be living in the women's college.

Anyone at the university of sydney and/or live at the women's college at university of sydney?

Any advice???

Yep I'm at Usyd!
If you're living in college, trust me, you'll have absolutely NO problem making friennds Also remember there are so many people in the same boat as you and if you just talk to the person next to you in tutes or lectures, you're bound to make friends!

Orientation Week at University of Sydney or a New University for others.
Okay, I have a question as I am REALLY shy to begin with, but I feel absolutely uncomfortable durning orientation. I already had one at my current university but I was (still am) living at home. And now I am transferring on going to live in a women's residence college at university of sydney away from my supportive family...

The thing is, I'm not just nervous about socialising with new guys, I'm also nervous on what other girls will think of me.

Also if anyone has information about university of sydney orientation and living in one of those residential colleges, do I have to go to all the events at orientation? I'm not the party type and really really nervous about socialising!!!!

^^Australia, i think, is a good place for fashion, but in my own opinion, the Aus. fashion industry can be sometimes, unoriginal and even ppl who work in the fashion industry (i.e. designers, journalists, etc.) agree that magazines and designers themselves emulate things that come straight from America or somewhere else overseas and then tag it their 'own' concepts. So, I don't know... I guess it's abt how you see fashion itself and how you intepret it.
I hope that helps you

TAFE in Sydney- designers such as Lisa Ho, Akira Isagawa, Alex Perry and Nikki Zimmerman have graduated from there. I think all the fashion courses are now based in Ultimo campus though... go here for more info
