M C My favourite place at the Melbourne City campus M C Our Melbourne City campus in located in the centre of Melbourne’s central business district. Located over three levels, the campus is home to our Foundation Year and Monash English students. There are so many fantastic spaces for students to study, socialise and relax. We ask some of them to share their favourite place on campus. The La Trobe Lounge The kitchen Cheng Long Liew, Malaysia, Foundation Year Sarah Kim, South Korea, Foundation Year “The La Trobe Lounge, student hangout space. My friends are always waiting there for me during lunch and break. We talk whenever we see each other and we have a good time making fun of each other.” “The kitchen. There are a variety of materials to make our own lunch. Also, it is clean to use.” 4 5 Mr. Close Helena Nendongo, Namibia, Foundation Year “Mr. Close [cafe]. It has my favourite breakfast. The batter is crunchy, the egg is perfectly cooked and the bun is super-fluffy. It is the perfect start to my day at college.” Seats in front of the science labs Christofer Gozali, Indonesia, Foundation Year “The seats in front of the lab, because it has power to charge my laptop, it’s cozy and chill.” “The round table, in front of the science lab. There’s so much space to do my work.” “The 4th floor of the campus. This place is my favourite because there is wooden styling, a lot of comfortable seats and places to sit and study.” The music room Priya Naresh Kumar, Singapore, Foundation Year Nakjun (Jerome) Sung, South Korea, Foundation Year Bo Hu, China, Foundation Year Ka Nam (Timothy) Law, Hong Kong, Foundation Year Polina Grinshpun, Ukraine, Foundation Year The library “The library. It is peaceful and quiet. The chairs are also very comfy, so it is a good place to relax or study or read some books in their collection.” The round table The 4th floor “The library. The reason is that I can have some food and study here. I can look up some books when I face an academic problem.” “My favourite place on Monash campus is the music room. I often come to this room before the classes start to make music and find vitality for the day. When I have music classes during the day, I get to spend time with other people who love music and our amazing music teacher, Jane Hampson. Then, when school finishes, I come to this room again to let go of every stress that I feel. Music has been the start and end of the school days for me, and this is why the music room is very precious to me. This is the place where I feel alive.” “Music has been the start and end of the school days for me, and this is why the music room is very precious to me. This is the place where I feel alive.” –
