So this “Stephen’s Guide to Berwick” is going to be a weekly segment written by me, the president, about something in or around Berwick that I think you might be interested in.
If you have something you’d like to hear about, a nice place to buy books, or have dinner, or just go with friends, then contact us and I’ll see what I can find out.
I thought for the first week it would be appropriate to talk about the place where you’ll be spending a lot of your time in Berwick, your University! You’ll find Berwick campus is very different than any other Monash campus, its smaller, simpler, and relatively easy to find where to go. Even if you get lost you can always ask someone where to go, there are always people in the lounge who can help.
The Oscar’s Lounge is in 902, you can’t miss it, it’s got comfortable seating, a bar for food and drink, and if it’s busy there might be music playing courtesy of MUBS. The Oscar’s bar is only open from 12-4 Monday-Thursday so don’t miss it. Also in 902 you have the Education Student Services, the Faculty of Education upstairs, and the Book Shop. The Book Shop is a great place to get anything you need, and some things you don’t. It doesn’t just sell books but stationary, Monash merchandise, and Nursing supplies.
Now Oscar’s has food and drink but if you want something else or if they’re not open you can go to the Meeting Point Café in 901. They sell a variety of foods, cold and hot, and coffee too for your 9am classes. 901 also has a prayer room, the main Berwick offices, and the Faculty of Business.
903 has the Nursing Faculty, the Security desk, and the Club room, where some clubs will be holding their events this year. The Club Room is a very comfortable space and quite new so I’m looking forward to seeing it used this year.
Two more locations left and first off we have the Library, if you need to research for an assignment, need a computer, or just need a quiet place to work you can find it here. Also in the library are printers, scanners, and photo copiers that you pay for with your student card, so hold on to that. Last but not the least is the Student Services, where you can get your student card, or any other help from the university, including counselling.
So that’s Berwick Campus, hope you enjoy it!
