Hailing from the glorious, if not quaint town of Bathurst, I’m like any other country kid heading to the big smoke to pursue higher education. In the years leading up to university, I became more aware of the world around me, specifically the growing issues of non-renewable energy processes. Being from regional Australia I’d say I spent a good deal of time out in the sun and soon understood the importance of seeking renewable sources of energy. This connection led me to seek such a specific degree.
I primarily chose to live on campus due to the distance between Bathurst and UNSW. But, I was also after a true college experience. Philip Baxter was recommended by a good friend and so far it’s been a surreal experience. There’s a healthy balance between academic life, social engagement and a fantastic sense of collegiality.
