What is it like to live at Lincoln?

Living at Lincoln is like living on an extended camp where you make a lot of friends and have new and different events almost every week. It's just a fun, easy break when you get back home from uni.

Have you found any academic advantages in living here?

Having tutors and older year levels around you is so helpful. You can just ask a quick little question to something, even if its trivial, and they will be more than happy to help you.

What social advantages have been provided?

Socially there is a great advantage in going to Lincoln than if I had just stayed in a house or an apartment. You’re constantly surrounded by people and it's hard not to make friends in that situation. There are also events almost every week that give you a needed break from thinking about uni.

What is your opinion on our sporting opportunities?

There are plenty and there is something for everyone. I am not a particularly sporty person and I have been on some of the teams. They give everyone a fair go.

How was the transition from high school to university made easier for you?

Going on the uni tours was good during O'week. I had no idea what I was getting myself into at university, but the older students explained how things work at your uni.

Describe Lincoln in five words

Fun. Supportive. Opportunity. Changing. Community.

What has been your favourite event?

SAAUCC Pub Crawl. It was a good break from uni.

Where is your favourite spot to hang out at Lincoln? 

That’s a hard one. It would either have to be the late tea room because it’s a good place to just chill out, or the common room because there is a pool table and table tennis tables and a projector for movies.

What is your fondest memory here?

I really don't know, there have been so many good ones it's hard to pick just one. Probably barn yard night, that was just an absolute blast.

Living at Lincoln has helped me to...

...come out of my shell a bit.
