Vox Pop 2: What scares you most about life as a university student?

University is pretty scary. All that independence, responsibility, trying to find a car park for a day without having to spend your entire savings…it’s no wonder there’s a bar situated on campus.

As I proposed this question to University of Wollongong students, it was no surprise that I received answers surrounding financial stability (or lack thereof), the workload and future career paths.

In particular, those who stated that they feared what came after university expressed intuitive answers, and really showed just how concerned they were.

Vox Pop 1: If you could change one thing in the world what would it be and why?

Nelson Mandela once expressed “education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Amidst an ever-expanding world, societies experience countless hardships that they wish they could change. Every individual holds passionate views to societal matters that they wish could be eliminated.

As I posed this question to University of Wollongong students, I received insightful answers and opinions on a range of issues. Students expressed their concern to colossal issues such as poverty and discrimination, and passionately discussed why they would change the issue they chose.
