On 4th April twenty Biomedical Science students and about ten staff enjoyed a dinner with a difference.
The dinner was held to allow students and staff to get to know each other outside of the academic environment of labs and lecture theatres. Food contributions were a mix of East meets west with multicultural foods such as cooked Chinese dumplings, tasty dishes from Iran and Thailand – and of course Aussie fare such as kangaroo meat hamburgers and sandwiches.
Invitations were extended to all year groups of the Biomedical Science degree with the aim to encourage senior and student interaction which may assist new students with their studies. Barriers between students and lecturers were broken down whilst devouring the gourmet spread hopefully making it easier for students to approach lecturers with questions and problems in the future.
The frivolity of the evening was interrupted to hold the Annual General Meeting of the Biomedical Students Association with Nicola Woodfield elected as new President for 2012 – and other new Committee members appointed.
The Association intends holding a biomedical BBQ dinner on the 23rd of April at the Uni Bar with details available from the new President. Other items for the 2012 diary will include sporting events and of course the ladies will have the chance to “frock up” with the Annual Biomedical Ball to be held in second semester.
