(二)課程學習

My favorite class at Southern Cross University is Cruises. I have long been interest in understanding the operation of cruises. Cruises is a incredible industry due to the power of combining all the tourism related industry. On a cruise you can experience accommodation, entertainment, transportation, food and beverage, and event at the same time. So, enable to operate all the department in one trip is quite fascinating to me. The teacher professor Debora is also an nice teacher. She work hard on giving us basic cruise information and knowledge, at the same time she provoke our minds by letting us design our very own theme for cruise. In this class we done a lot of in class activities to made every student engaged in the class. However, there are always difficulties in all things. I struggle a lot on the test as well as the homework. The tests and take home assignments require a student to use the knowledge they learned in class and combined them with own thoughts. Moreover, students have to show their research skills since all assessments needs reference. It is important to find academic articles to support your own thoughts. I will reccommend that all students should try this class to challenged themselves and to break through the limit. Suggestion for classes enrolling i would say that sustainable tourism is a must take course. Aa a student studying toursim it is crucial to understand the future of this industry. Knowing the future can help you choose your career more wisely and notice the first hand innovations in tourism filed. This class teaches you to care about environment which is quite important due to the strong bond between nature and tourism industry. Critical thinking is demonstrate in this class too. The professor teaches you how to think critically, to make your thinking logical and make them reliable.(310字)

(三)生活環境

Southern Cross University is not a big campus, however is provides all things students will need. For examples, the library is huge wil abundant storage of books. Students can find all text books for different department as well as additional materials to assist learning. There are several places in the campus that provides students a quiet environment to study. I find this a great help because when studying in campus I can always concentrate more easily and approach to any sources i need fast. The free wifi, snacks, computers, and academic assistant are all the reasons why i think SCU care about student a lot. SCU not only give student a nice environment but also give as many help as possible online. The site of SCU have every kind of help a student will require. From normally class information, assignment guide, referencing guide to internship support, personal tutor and blackboard online classes. I believe that these access for students would make life in SCU more easily. About accommodations there is no student dorm in SCU gold coast campus but one can find suitable rooms on the website of UNISTAY. It cooperate with nearby landlord and past experience of students who stayed there to provide a list of house to choose from. I think this website is safer than ofther public website due to the comment and uni assurance. The weather at gold coast is sunny mostly. At June and July the winner comes but at noon gold coast still gets some sun. The bus is convinent here at gold coast. (260字)

(四)自我成長

The most frustrating experience I have during my study in Australia was finding a internship job. Before I come to Australia I have no idea that it will be so hard to find a internship job. Southern Cross University promise us to give us a ideally internship opportunity when attend the meeting before arriving Australia. To most of us who choose SCU our dream departs. All of us struggle when finding a internship, the painful journey begins with lots of rejection from companies. We have sent over hundred of cv to several companies until we almost loss hope. I even questioned myself, is it because I am not qualify enough or I am not good enough. Self-esteem was very low in that stage of my life here. i feel confusing, sad, nervous, and angry at the same time. Luckily, at last through the help of SCU I gain a job of housekeeping. Although it is not my first choice, i can not ask for any more. Now Look back to that period of my life i view it as a process of growing up. I must go through journey for everyone when first stepping in to the real world. I believe the experience i got in this process will surely be benefit for my future path. For living in Australia, i was suprised by the daily routine of their life. The stores close at five in the afternoon everyday which is a great difference to Taiwan. Also, people here like to be close to the nature on weekend instead of staying at homes. Spending time with family is important to Aussies as well. (273字)

(五)大三出國建議

For those who will come after me, my suggestion will be that the life you have here will be a lot of difference than what you are used to. If you want to develop abilities and to challenge yourself then studying in SCU will be suitable for you. There will be no time for you to play like a child, here there is only those who work hard will success. Back in Taiwan you might lean on your parents but here you have to do every things alone. There will certainly be times you feel terribly homesick or burst out of tears. Consider soming here a way of forcing yourself to be more independent and to grow up. Don't be afraid to seek for help, be brave to ask questions. Another important suggestion is that homestay will not be a great choice for living. From my experience, it is expensive than finding your own house. The chance of having a nice family hosting you is rare. The postion of homestay will definitely be far away from your University. So, i will say that it is best not to waste money on that. Friends are those who will help you survive here. I can said the without my friends i will have no idea how i would overcome all my difficulties. By friends i mean those who caome with you from Taiwan not the friends you will hve here. Honestly, i have to tell that i make very few friends here. From what i observe Australian doesn't really like asian that much. They will chat with you and treat you nice but they will never be your close friend. Also, you will be studying and working for most of the time. It will be hard to keep a friendship in there busy days. So, cherish your friends around you and be supportive when they need you. (315字)
