Our Uni has a unique tradition of having most exams at Randwick racecourse. As a fourth year student, I have finished every single semester here.
However, over the last 3 semester, part of the racecourse facility has undergone rebuilding. UNSW students had the interesting experience of completing finals in “marquees” I.e. oversize tents. I am sure students from my generation will fondly remember these tents for scorching heat, poring rain or extreme wind.
I received my official exam timetable this week, and I am set to finish another term here. This picture is symbolic because you can see the first marquee being setup in the foreground and the nearly completed new QEII grandstand at the back. I look forward to using that building in the future!
