    I’d absolutely love a free hoodie!
    I completed 2 degrees at MU, and as a student, could never have afforded a hoodie! I lived at Robert Menzies College for a year, and then at Student Housing opposite Macquarie Center.
    I am proud most of all to see my daughter finish her final year in her BCom/Law, despite the limitations we are all currently facing.
    MU is a place that holds many special memories for me, not only for my education, but for the friends I met along the way and the opportunities that followed.
    I would be super proud to wear the hoodie

    Attending Macquarie Uni. from 75 to 1980 as a mature student…..I loved and enjoyed every minute of my Mac. Uni. courses. Born in 1931 – a time when girls’ education was generally considered unnecessary “you will get married”……..By accident .(a long story).. … I found myself at Hornsby Tech…..thinking enrolling for a History hobby course. Actually was H.S.C. 1974. I continued on, went with the flow, enrolling in every course I could. Realised what had been missing from my life. BORED with cards, tennis, golf. Rushed to be present at 9.00 am. After fulfilling family duties. Then, told my name in SMH, enrolled at Macquarie. So surprised… Then followed….Teaching with TAFE I did a DIP.ED . So easy with all credits from my Mac. Uni. record. So William Street H.S. Bus, ferry , tram Leaving home 7.00 am. Return at 5.00pm. from Catholic Edu. St. John the Baptist. Harbord. Rejected at Manly High without Education Department exam. (A skinny, tiny. hair plaited girl.) Found my way to William Street School….(sadly now gone).
    Examined by Education dept. before I could be enrolled, told I had passed for Sydney High.
    . By then school term had started about three weeks. Harbord distance – maybe why William Street? So happy and wonderful teachers. Told many years later by former student who went on to Sydney High only one good teacher – our former geography teacher now at Sydney High. Sorry so long Pam Wilson (Perrin)
