The highlight of my Griffith experience so far is that I've got to connected and become friends with students from many backgrounds. Their stories and experiences help to enrich my knowledge and perspectives. It is also that I've had opportunities to contribute to support other students to enjoy their university lives, for example, being a part of the Griffith Mates.

At first, I really couldn't adapt to such a strange and stressful learning model as I had to complete some quizzes and difficult essays within the specified time. After completing these assignments, I had to review the lecture notes to get prepared for the final exam. Sometimes unprecedented learning patterns and language barriers made me feel helpless and stressful. But after some time, I found the shortcomings of my study and gradually found a learning method that was suitable for me.

I graduated at quite a young age from high school and I knew I wanted to study something medicine or biology related. However, I didn't want to start medicine just yet because I'm uncertain myself. I saw that Griffith is the only university that we didn't have to choose specific majors during Biomedical Science and keeps it pretty broad, rather 'specialising' only when continuing studies to a higher degree.

It was always my dream to study both Psychology and Criminology. In my country, there was only one university offering this degree. So, when I started to search for universities, Griffith immediately stood out as the School of Criminology is internationally recognised and in the top 5%. This was the reason I applied to Griffith initially, but I chose Griffith because there was simply no other university that made me feel so welcome and appreciated as Griffith did from the very first moment of contact.

When I first arrived in Australia, I didn’t know anything about this new place nor did I know anyone. The orientation ceremony held by Griffith helped me a lot to learn everything I needed to know for my studies. The friendly support staff and mentors made a huge impact on my positive start to being a Griffith student.

Griffith's support services have helped me with something that I personally have struggled a lot with - socializing and making new friends. Moving entirely alone to a new country was very difficult for me to adjust to, especially because I had no friends here and nobody to turn to when I needed help. Through Orientation activities and several Griffith Mates programs (volunteering day-trips and the Buddy Program specifically) have helped me meet new people and make friends, some of which are in the same courses as I am.

Maryville University - a second home and so far an incredible experience. Every day gives new opportunities to make new, long-lasting memories with faculty, staff, and other students. At Maryville I matter, I inspire, I get inspired, and I evolve. For each day that passes I see myself becoming more and more the person I aspire to be, and with the engaging staff and great diversity, there is always something to take away from each and every day.

There are two memories relating to my semester abroad that are really important: my Southeast Asia trip and my big trip to Australia with my friends from Germany. In all, we took in Bali, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand because to go there from Australia was relatively cheap. Then afterwards, I came back and I travelled around Australia with two friends from Germany for five weeks. Studying abroad made those experiences possible.

I think that my first desire was to get outside of my comfort zone and have the experience of living by myself in a different country, with a different culture, with different people, be somewhere I don’t know anyone else and live an international student life – which is very, very challenging. This was my first thought, but after the first year, after settling, everything changed... Continue reading Ligia's journey on whatALUMNIsay
