Bachelor of Education student Stephanie Frost, of Blacks Beach, is the 10,000th student to join CQUni’s student social network, UCROO. UCROO has been a massive success since it was launched in 2015, with students from across CQUni’s nation-wide footprint able to connect and share their study journeys.
As our 10,000th UCROO sign up (and a distance student), what do you like most about the social network?
As a distance student, it can sometimes be hard to meet people who study the same subjects; particularly those who live in the same town. Now with UCROO, it is so much easier to be in contact with other students studying the same subjects. The Marketplace is pretty handy as well, as you can buy and sell textbooks.
What is the best thing about CQUni?
The flexibility to be able to study while still being able to work is one of the best things about CQUni. Even though I am a distance student, I don’t feel in any way disadvantaged thanks to the recorded lectures and the frequent communication with lecturers.
What was the moment that made you choose your career?
My dad is now a retired Principal, but when I was younger I used to spend a lot of time with him after school and on the weekends. Although I wouldn’t admit it then, seeing how dedicated he was towards his students and how respected he was by the school community made me want to follow in his footsteps and pursue a career in Education.
Why should people study at CQUni?
People should study at CQUni not only because it gives you the flexibility to study on your own terms, but because the support you receive during your studies from the staff and other students is just incredible.
What would be your last meal?
My last meal would have to be the southern fried chicken crispers from Cactus Jacks followed by a massive slice of pavlova!
Which country in the world would you most like to visit?
There is no way I could narrow it down to just one country. After graduation I would love to travel around the world using my degree to teach students in all of the different countries so I could learn about all of their different cultures and lifestyles.
What is a motto or phrase that you live by?
Carpe Diem which is translated to “seize the day” because life is too short to not enjoy the moment.
