Mature Age Officer

Janine Aujard  


Degree and Year of study: Bachelor of Arts – Honours year

What inspired you to engage with the office and the role you currently hold? – My role as the current president of the Mature Students Association puts me in a unique position of representing mature students. Representing them on the SRC is the obvious next step, enabling me to be a conduit for requests and concerns.

What do you hope to achieve in your office and role in 2021? I am working towards engaging mature students in decision making processes.

What Clubs are you involved with at UofA?  The Mature Students Association, CAHS- (classics and antiquity society), and UNITE.

What led you to join the clubs(s)?  I am a big believer in getting involved in things.

Favourite holiday destination/activity? My dream holiday would be motor homing around the USA.

Favourite place to study on campus? The Uni Bar- they have charging stations for laptops, and AUU members get a 5% discount. Although I am always guaranteed to bump into someone I know there, which can be distracting!

What advice would you give to students starting out at the University of Adelaide?

Be organised, get a diary, seek help if needed. Ask for extensions if you require them. Enjoy yourself and join clubs!
