News in Brief

Cagey Cosgrove continues caper

Former Victoria University Students’ Association (VUWSA) President Joel Cosgrove has yet to repay his $1200 debt to the association for costs relating to his infamous trip to Australia last year.

The former president has been “dodging” contact with VUWSA’s legal representation, and still insists upon not needing to repay the duty due to VUWSA impinging on his worker’s rights. The situation is under legal consideration.

Sleepy time in a sleepy town for student atheletes

Victoria University Students’ Association President Jasmine Freemantle has confirmed that accommodation has been found for the 300 or so athletes expected to represent Victoria at this year’s University Games in New Plymouth.

Probing scientists found somewhere other than on UFO’s ha ha, get it?

Scientists from seven countries around the globe will gather together in the Franz Josef Glacier this Sunday for a five-day-long probe-fest.

As one of the world’s most active fault-lines, the Alpine Fault will be explored by 60 scientists (led by Dr John Townend of Vic Uni), who are inspecting earthquake deformation processes and hopefully drilling some shit.

Brainy Students Get Free Snacks While the Rest of Us Get fewer Tutorials

Last week, Victoria University’s top thirty-four Accounting and Commercial Law students received Awards for Excellence in the annual prize giving ceremony.

Afterwards the recipients and their families were invited to mix and mingle, and to snack on some light refreshments… no wonder some of our tutorial classes are being cut down because of (actual quote) “necessary budget readjustments”.
