Student blogger for ASSC

By Sam Murphy

Hello all,

My name is Sam Murphy and I’m the student blogger for the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Commerce. You can check out the site here. The blog, called ‘Wise ASSC’, is a new outlet that is aimed at engaging with students on an informal level.

We’ll be giving you some great study and exam tips, introducing you to outstanding ASSC students and academics, as well as looking at upcoming ASSC and La Trobe events.

We’ve got some great content over on the blog already that relates to La Trobe Business School.

Just recently we had a chat to Daniel Nguyen, a lecturer and tutor at La Trobe in finance and economics who is also a PhD candidate. He spoke to us about his professional experience before La Trobe, winning a teaching award from the La Trobe Student Union, as well as giving students some tips for the exam period.

We’ve also recently just featured some great internship and work experience opportunities over the summer. Some of these opportunities include a Marketing internship, an HR internship and a Finance internship. Check them out here.

Finally, while it has finished, we looked over some great study and preparation tips for students undergoing exams. We also looked at some ways to stay productive over the SWOTVAC, as well as finishing end of semester assessments.  These tips will still be useful for summer semester and for next year.

We’ve got some great stuff planned for the rest of this month which all ASSC students should definitely look out for. We’ll also be back bigger and better than ever in 2017 so stay tuned for that.

Until then, happy end of semester!
