Episode 2 brings you the rose-coloured campus life that we all secretly yearn for.

“We first met in high school at one of my friend’s 18th birthday party, and then we kind of got to know each other more and more at Macquarie library where we studied together. I helped her with maths sometimes, like 2 Unit maths, but I’m pretty sure she didn’t need it, she just kept coming to me. I ended up asking her out the day HSC finished. It was at one of those big grad parties. The most romantic moment in our relationship was when we were in Japan and we got stuck out in a really heavy snow storm. All the trains, buses and taxis weren’t operating so there was no transport home for us. We ended up taking 2 hours to walk home in the snow for what should have been a 20-minute walk because we got lost, my phone ran out of battery and my SIM card didn’t work. We were just playing in the snow and running around, it was probably the most memorable moment in our relationship. At the time, it was freezing, it didn’t seem like we were having fun, but looking back on it now, it was one of the best times.”

We all know that true romance blossoms from 2 Unit Maths.

Welcome to the kickstart post for the new Humans of SUBS initiative! Enjoy!

“One thing I am proud of is choosing to leave my home country to study here at the University of Sydney Business School. It has been an amazing experience, but it has also been extremely emotional since I miss my parents all the time. I think today has been particularly hard as it’s actually my birthday! I just got off the phone with my parents and told them that I was tired, had a lot of deadlines coming up, and was extremely stressed with exams. Their response was “Don’t worry, no matter the grade, we are already so proud of you and believe in you” and that made me really emotional. I think that’s what I love most about my parents, that every time I feel stressed or overwhelmed here in Australia, I always have them to talk to and assure me that everything will be okay which really helps. They tell me all the time that no matter what, they just want me to be happy and healthy…and also to find a man.”

The Sydney University Business Society not only focuses on helping students grow personally, but in creating opportunities for its members to develop professionally. SUBS aims to break down barriers by functioning as the fundamental bridge that brings together our 8000 students with leading professionals and top graduate employers.

From our High Achievers Breakfast that provides an exclusive opportunity for students to personally network with industry professionals from all different industries, to partnering with top firms to create stimulating case competitions, SUBS creates an avenue for both our students and corporate sponsors to connect with one another.

It is these network of events that are specifically designed to create opportunities and benefits for both parties, whether that be providing students with valuable insights into potential career avenues or facilitating a platform for top firms to promote exciting opportunities.

SUBS aims to close the gap in terms of helping students transition from university life into the unfamiliar that is the professional world. Through the facilitation of career workshops, students can develop soft skills to ultimately develop truly employable business students that are job-ready as soon as they graduate.

Although SUBS plans and presents a huge number of experiences, ranging from our sports teams to our professional and social events, the core message that SUBS is an inclusive society for all individuals is at the heart of what we do. Making the university experience as memorable and character-building as possible is our core objective, and what we hope our events manage to achieve.

No matter what you want to get out of university, we believe we can provide you with the support and tools to achieve that. If you don’t think we do, tell us! We would love to hear from you and any ideas you may have to help make SUBS a better environment for all students.
