雷切尔·奥布莱恩

Living in the student village on 半岛 campus now means that first year Physio student, Rachel O’Brien is able to enjoy the communal areas in the new 半岛 residential accommodation, Gillies大厅.

“I live in a share house in the student village with eight others but we are able to enjoy the facilities in the Gillies大厅 such as the common room, 音乐的房间, the games room and the study room,”雷切尔说. “I think the new residential accommodation is really well designed. I like the interior as well as the colours.”

Rachel is from Heyfield in Gippsland and this is her first time living away from home.

“I have some friends living in my share house so it has been good so far but I’ve met lots of other students too,”雷切尔说. “I go home on weekends to work as a Life Guard but as the weather gets cooler I’ll be spending more time here studying. I love the intimacy of 半岛 campus, as well as the surrounding gardens.”

Rachel participated in most of the ag九游会官网登录 Residential 服务 student residential orientation activities and found it to be a really good way to meet other first year Physio students. Her course is also very practical which has helped.

“I’m getting to know everyone in the course,” she said. “It’s very hands on so we get to practise our techniques on each other in a very professional environment.”

Rachel’s future ambitions include becoming a Paediatric Physiotherapist or Physiotherapist specialising in women’s health in a regional hospital.
