We have a good feeling March is going to go out like a lamb and we couldn’t be more excited. Why? Because then we can play some funny pranks in the office for April Fool’s Day. The downside? April Fool’s Day happens on a Sunday this year, nixing the opportunity to pull any hilarious office pranks. With that, here’s our OzTREKK Four for Friday. We kidd you not. No foolin’. Just joshin’. And so on…
1. Celebrate April Fool’s Day Facebook Style. Use your favourite social media tool to pull pranks on your internet besties . Change your birthday to April 1, and watch the well wishes for another wonderful year fill your timeline. Oh, the hilarity! Hey, we didn’t say we were geniuses; we’re simply trying to help you accomplish your April Fool’s Day pranks.
2. A Day in the Life of a University of Queensland Science Student. The University of Queensland recently launched a video documenting a day in the life of a University of Queensland Science Student. It’s a nicely produced video that helps you learn more about the services and facilities on campus. See the video below:
3. Olympic Village Architect Wins Gold Medal. The University of Newcastle professor who has designed multiple Olympic Games venues and villages has been awarded the Australian Institute of Architects’ highest accolade, the Gold Medal. Multi award-winning architect, Professor Lawrence Nield, provides design leadership through the University of Newcastle‘s Architect in Residence program where he acts as a mentor to Australia’s next generation of architects. He was head of master planning for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, designed five venues for the Athens Olympics in 2004, five venues and for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 and the 2012 London Athletes Village.
4. Shannon’s a Hippie? If you’ve ever read our staff biographies, you’ll learn that Shannon Tilston has often been told she’s a hippie. She is a vegetarian, loves to garden and recycles toilet paper rolls. In April we plan to celebrate Shannon’s approach by profiling a number of environmentally-related programs offered by our Australian university partners and document our OzTREKK student experience in these programs. Happy Earth Month!
