'I thought the transition to university life was going to be tough, but this wasn't the case at La Trobe. I love it here. The university offers the best facilities and even better staff. The sports centre has so many activities and the library is just amazing! I have made friends with so many people from different nationalities and studying with them helps me learn a lot more. Everyone here is friendly and there is always someone to help you out or share the same interests as you. As a student ambassador, I am employed by the university to help new students find their way. These positions are open to all La Trobe students, where you get the opportunity to meet so many people and work with a very efficient team.'
