"I am the Agency Account Manager for Macquarie Media based at 2GB in Pyrmont, and completing my course at Charles Sturt University (CSU) has absolutely prepared me for the workforce. I am always referring back to what I did while I studied – from building proposals to presenting in front of peers and clients. Studying was all practice and a great way to enter the industry. I also learnt a lot about myself, including the importance of presentation, attention to detail and not throwing in the towel when it gets too hard.
"My most memorable CSU experience had to be living on campus and meeting people of all different backgrounds with different ambitions for the future. I made lots of lifelong friends within the first month.
"Regional universities are fantastic – they take people out of their comfort zones to shape them into young adults and leaders. CSU was perfect for me – the people, the culture and the memories.
"Have a go! Drive up and check out the campus and find out about the benefits of studying in a regional town. I have recommended CSU to my mates and their siblings – they’ve now been studying at CSU for a couple of years and are absolutely loving it."
