  • We drove through the campus. Worth a look to see where a lot of taxpayers $ go. Must be well funded. An interesting mix of historic and contemporary buildings, and grassed areas. 
  • It's a Uni that is in need of a little cuddle, a tad tired and parking can be a nightmare, but hey, you are here for an education so put your head down and bottom up. A little cold in winter so make s...  more »
  • The ANU campus has to be one of the most pleasant in Australia. It is a short walk from the central Civic area. OK, there is not much to actually 'do' on a uni campus if you are not a student but it c...  more »

  • This organisation hosts a Professor Scott Henderson whom likes to take statements written by Nurses and people Training to gain qualification as factual information from a qualified person. One person Training wrote that I had breached conditions of a DVO and this Professor took it upon himself to then ensure I would never breach the conditions of that DVO which had long expired (some 5 years later past expiry of the order that I consented too). According to the professor this claim outside a court of law and untested must be truth so my emailing of a female politician was of most concern (not the home invasions and stalking committed by alcoholics paid to consume alcoholic substances via a system of mates-rates and the supply of food and milk). I was housed in an area known for its violence because the person Training thought it best - I was unable to leave or access my tenancy due alcoholics consuming vast amounts of alcoholic substances before they would perform home invasions, threatening, and on occasion physical assault or attempted murder. Upon complaint to friends of an army reservist at ACATT I was sent to see this professor whom adorned his walls with B/W photos of his time in a CAST society where lbgtqi's were fixed, criminals were fixed, and the unwilling to arranged marriages were drugged to become more compliant. The professor will refuse to watch video of domestic abuse, home invasion 1, gay-bashing, and home invasion 2 but will gladly accept another like minded professionals option that the content could only be described as 'harassment' even though considering what they claimed my state of mind was - would and could amount to attempted murder (if i didnt have a video camera they would of called it a delusion). The professor when confronted with someone whom tells him that they will not be attending his delusion expressions may find that he will become upset and begin fabricating information. His fabrications have no limit as he will attempt to then conceal such fabrications from the person he fabricated a story about whist he uses the full extent of the law to make such claims - he will ask if your using the internet and if you do not want to be monitored for years then i would suggest that you answer No. 400k was paid after the domestic abuse and following 'gay-bashings' that this professor concealed from the records (after 5 years you would think he would of written something but it seems not to be). Family members commit acts of abuse and/or that stand to gain wealth from his diagnosis will be sort out to confirm the professors fictional beliefs in-which he relays information in a manner as to achieve a non truthful statement (leading the person by questions that prompt a reply he can manipulate to his advantage - which is the same behaviour he exhibits when interviewing a person he doenst like of which is decided by his readings that lack any connotative ability to understand the content). After confronting the professor with allegation of time-wasting (5 years wroth without any information on any diagnosis) he will not make eye contact and his hearing will by magic be restored (he uses an excuse of hearing to sit within a persons personal space which is used to rush-hurry statements he can twist to become untruthful). This professor should be avoided at any cost as others will not question the fabrications he writes and he is a willing person to committing medical neglect by ignoring serious personal health issues like abnormal ECG results and physical issues that can not be detected simply by looking at a person - along with the health and safety issues of an housing department and government that funded alcoholics $5000 to terrorise people whist using the excuse of 'im drunk'. Asking ANU for a policy statement upon the treatment of persons within UNI housing as to compare with the video recorded treatment abetted by the professor over 5 years will result in no reply. ANU, Friends and family of the professor work within the mass media as rival publishers.
  • One of the first entries into the Young Art Journalism Awards (YAJA) has been submitted by an ANU student. Obviously, being pro-active and showing leadership is encouraged.
  • disgusting , filled with Diao Si. Prefer NSW and Uni of Sydney.
  • Regarding my own experience, ANU is definitely one of the best universities in Australia. High qualified teachers, good students. As learning economics at ANU, I can always get the chance to attend many high level seminars or meetings held by uni.
  • Somehow it's only after I've left the ANU that I've come to truly realise and appreciate how fortunate I've been to have graduated from Australia's top university. I would not have chosen to study anywhere else. 3 Cheers to the ANU! Long may it reign supreme!
