Airport-Magic Place

Dear Blog,

How are you doing?

In the morning, because Griffith International has a new service for all new International Students, I went to Brisbane International Airport in the morning to be part of Airport reception crew member. This is a great idea for university to welcome its new International Students. Students feel more welcoming, and we answer different questions, head welcome pack, which includes campus maps, International student study Guide, and some useful information. So come along to see and talk to our GI Mates Airport reception crew, You will get more than what you except.

I found, airport is a quite magic place, isn’t it? Friends, relatives, couples, they hug, kiss, shake hands to express their emotion to their friends arrive in the country, but sometimes, people cry and do not want to leave in departure.

Also, this magic place holds hundreds of people’s dream. Businessmen come to here to start their business, pilot has their nice sky life start from airport. I think this is why I do like airport, and I love air craft. They are nice all the time. When the time the “Iron Bird” takes off to sky, people are excited about flying into sky, and cannot wait to get their destination.

I wish I could work in one of the airline or airport one day. I will put all enthusiastic, passion and responsibility in this magic place.


GI Mates

“Good morning, welcome to Griffith University, how can I help you?”

You will hear it all the time when you come to GI Mates during Orientation time in Griffith University. There is a group call “GI Mates“, which Making Arrival and Transition Easy for Students. This excellent team has work in university for around 6 years, and it gets more and more reputations.

It is my honor to be one of this excellent team. We help all new international student during the first week of orientation, give campus tour, helping them enrolling into courses, give panels, and What’s more? Welcome all the new students! Having been working with this team for about 1 year. New students always say “Jack, GI Mates has done so good jobs, I cannot imagine without you guys help, what could be during my orientation, and I feel so welcome when I first time come to this university.”

I like being GI Mates, trying my best to help students. Personally, I think the best part of the program is senior students use their own experiences to help new students, and it always works.

Moreover, in this big team, we are like a “family”, we help each other, we support each other when we are working, and we do have fun time ourselves. We have picnic, have BBQ…

Here is a picture slideshow video made by myself to show why I love this team, and many people are keen to join this team.

 


Brisbane, a City of Sunshine

Time flies. I have been in Brisbane for one and half year. I really like this city, very young, but full of passion.

Brisbane is located in Queensland, and in a very good location between Sunshine Coast, and Gold Coast. The Weather here is very good, not very hot, and not very cool.

I like Brisbane, because people here is so friendly that I have never seen before. We say “Hello”, “Thank you” to bus drivers when you get on or get off the bus. Even, when we have some problem on the street, people would like to help you, and make you to get what you want.

The Universities here are in the high level generally. There are five main universities in Brisbane.  The University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology Griffith University, James Cook University, and Central Queensland University. The first three universities has their one of own campuses near the Brisbane River. They are all in the top of Australian Universities.

Brisbane, a city of Sunshine. Because people here are so hard working. Students are trying to get the best performance when there study. I like Brisbane, its sunshine, peaceful, beauty, and passion.


End of Year Party 2011

I have a wonderful party tonight, which had been hold by the GI Mates. This is my first party when I get in Australia for about 4 months.I am the really new one for this GI Mates, but I am pretty sure that I will be the excellent one after my hard working for that.

In the party, I have talked with some Griffith staff there, and share my experience with the experienced GI Mates. Actually, I have got so many helps when I first in the Orientation. They helped me to fine the place to get the enrollment package, helped me to get the package, showed me how to enroll the courses, and even talked with me about the life in the uni. I think they can be described as the “Brothers and Sisters” to every first year International students. At that time, I really wanted to be the member of this amazing organizations, cause I really want to give other help.

Today, I have been the member of this fantastic organisations, I will give my help from next semester. That is kind of dream has come true. I will work as the good as other mates.

GI Mates is really new one, he needs people to give the passion, enthusiastic.

I am get ready for giving the passion, loyalty, enthusiastic, hard-working to this meaningful organization-GI Mates (Griffith International Mates.)
