"Armidale has a unique living environment which makes me feel at home. I have also joined some clubs, attended public activities and made some good friends. Though you must never forget to study hard! Some of the best times at UNE are studying in the library, meeting friends for coffees and playing basketball and football at the sports union. I also have sweet memories of studying at the English Language Centre, selling dumplings with my friends at the Sunday markets and talking with my Aussie friends and neighbours."
