Meet our 2018 Phone Appeal student callers!
All of them have come from different parts of Australia and the world to study at the University, and they cannot wait to learn from alumni and support the causes close to their hearts.
They also shared what they love most about ANU:
Abi, PhB (Science)
I love the vibrant residential communities on campus: they're truly a transformative part of the ANU student experience.
The excellent opportunities ANU offers - from exchange overseas to internships in Parliament.
The thing I love most about The ANU is how our incredible academics will always spare the time to answer student questions.
Relatively few students have come to ANU out of convenience, so all of us are here out of an active interest in our studies.
The ANU not only allows for incredible academic growth, but also an incredible amount of personal and professional growth.
The people I’ve met at ANU have really made the university experience worthwhile.
Christiana, PhD in Ecology
I love the sense of community we have at ANU and how supportive everyone is.
I’m so thankful for the lifelong friendships I’ve made here at The ANU.
I like having the cockatoos on campus be my personal alarm clock every morning!
I love ANU as I’ve been able to live on campus and make friends for life, while attending classes taught by world leading academics.
Eleanor, PhB Arts/DipLang
I adore the campus wildlife - the possums (or ANU cats as we call them), ducks and gorgeous native birds; especially in spring.
I love ANU because it is so accepting and diverse, I feel like I can really be myself!
I love that ANU takes our relationship with the Canberra community so seriously: we even train the ducks to cross roads safely.
I love how much real world experience (both practical and research based) my lecturers and tutors have in their fields.
What I love most is the people: the diverse backgrounds everyone comes from.
I love student theatre, science field trips, possums on campus, the best chips in Canberra and the list goes on…
My favourite aspect of the ANU community is the genuine care and compassion we have for each other.
I admire ANU's strong influence on national political debates: it's so interesting to observe and be in the midst of it all.
I love how the ANU experience connects present students with alumni, and can be shared by all who come here!
What I believe to be very unique about at the ANU is the holistic campus experience that you get as an undergraduate.
I love the vast amount of socities and opportunities available to expand your hobbies and career prospects.
I find the variety, quantity and quality of events at ANU very interesting and I love getting involved in them.

It gives me a chance to finally be the person I’ve always wanted to be
ANU isn't just a place I go to study: it's a place I call home.
I love the sense of community that exists at the ANU and the incredible diversity of people that are found within it.
I love the beautiful leafy campus and all the opportunities to get out and do outdoorsy activities like bushwalking and rock climbing!
I love the 'college town' experience, which is something most university students in Australia don't get.
I love the college-based culture that so easily lets ANU become a second home for so many.
I love that ANU is an inclusive community and provides so many opportunities for students.
What I love the most about ANU is its buzzing on-campus life - it’s impossible to ever be bored
