Girls get a taste of university

WITH their HSC exams in front of them, McAuley Catholic College students Lily Barry, Rachel Stevenson and Megan Essex have been giving some serious thought to their future career paths, a thought which was highlighted by an excursion to Southern Cross University's Coffs Harbour campus.

After selecting the courses they are most interested in studying for their tertiary education the girls were given a taste of uni life by joining their older peers in lectures and class activities.

"It was a pretty good day. I think Southern Cross seemed like a good university," Rachel said.

"Everyone there was really nice," Lily added.

"But I'm also interested in seeing the SCU Gold Coast campus."

Despite all members of the trio expressing a sense of nervousness heading into their HSC exams, each of the girls have an individual career path in mind.

Lily plans to study nursing while Rachel is interested in medicine. Megan said she would be happy to study teaching or "become a rock star".
