Past, Present, Future

Posted by | March 26, 2013 | Briefing, Ormondian | No Comments

The Ormondian team thought it prudent that we document the progress made by some of our older students, perhaps showing us what they learnt (or didn’t learn) over the course of their time here. This process was started when they were wee Freshers. We used our powerful and convenient time machine to travel a few years into the future to see what’s in store for these lucky few. Here are the results.

First Year:

So, what are you studying? Arts – just Arts like because you know the Melbourne Model doesn’t allow conjoints anymore! But like, I’m pretty much pre-law.

Where are you living? I’m in McCaughey, and I’m really excited to be living in Ormond’s best building.

Done anything crazy lately? I didn’t go the Self and Society ethics tute – will I be kicked out?
