CQUniversity students appraise their uni teachers skills
FIRST year psychology student Casey Lennox is among the increasing number of scholars loving life on campus at CQUniversity.
The 18-year-old, who attended Mount Morgan State High School, has just finished her first year of her four-year degree at the Rockhampton campus, and says it is a great place to study.
"I've really enjoyed my time here so far, I'm finding it very interesting and enjoying my degree," Casey said.
"I've met a lot of nice people and made a lot of friends - all the lecturers are very friendly and helpful," Casey said.
She added the facilities were top notch, with the library staff willing and able to do whatever they could to help students.
"The Student Association is very good if you need anything, and the gym facilities are very handy."
Casey was not alone in feeling satisfied with campus life.
CQUniversity recently welcomed a boost in student satisfaction levels reported to the Australian Graduate Survey.
This year more than 2000 CQUniversity graduates provided feedback about their program experience via the AGS, which is an annual national survey co-ordinated by Graduate Careers Australia, together with participating institutions.
According to CQUniversity's Pro Vice-Chancellor Learning and Teaching Professor Rob Reed, the latest AGS outcomes are a testament to the efforts of staff across our programs to improve the perceptions of students and graduates in the quality of their learning experience at CQUniversity.
Prof Reed said the recent AGS results showed CQUniversity's 2012 graduates were highly satisfied with their program experience, with increases of between 2-4% on the previous year's data.
