Going to a new university is a big adventure. There is a lot of preparation, narrowing down which universities and courses to apply for, interviews, forms to fill out, documentation to provide, and then the wait to see if the application was successful. I received my letter of offer of a place in the Bachelor of Digital Media, majoring in film and video, just before Christmas. It was the best Christmas present I could have wished for. I was awarded credit for the first year due to my previous studies elsewhere, so I will be starting in year two.
So here I was, opening the door to the Wilcox Mofflin Building. This is the Ultimo Design Campus of Torrens University. It is generally called Billy Blue because of the famous Billy Blue College of Design, but the Media Design School is also here as well as the CATC Design School. I am in the Billy Blue College. This will be my home for the next two years for the bachelor degree, and another eighteen months on top of that if I decide to do a Master of Design as well.
I opened the door and stepped inside. The adventure has begun.
