Dear MU freshmen,
In early July we were just as lost as you are right now.
We are eight Australian journalism students from Macquarie University in Sydney. We spent the summer at MU to find out what campus life is all about.
During this process, we were assigned to provide the content for the Collegetown section. To do our jobs, we gathered information to help you find your way around campus, succeed academically and have some well-earned fun.
Inside Collegetown you’ll find information on what we believe are some of the most important aspects of MU, as well as the city of Columbia.
We’ve included tips on how to get around town, what to do if you get sick, how to get involved in campus life, where to go on the weekends, advice about studying and taking exams, tips on maintaining good physical and mental health, and general information on how to not only survive but also enjoy your first year.
MU is a fantastic campus with so much to offer. You’re guaranteed to get the real college experience while here. We sure did.
Hopefully, this guide will serve you well as you begin your days as an MU Tiger.
