Hello there new, young and old students, and let me say to the new students welcome to ‘week one’, or as the younger students are about to know it as ‘the week of free stuff’.

And let me be the first to say to you new students, on behalf of the older students welcome to La Trobe University, I can guarantee you that us older students are very pleased to see new faces and would love to greet you personally but are too busy with the new assignment they just received from that mean teacher who doesn’t believe in easing back into learning, that you will soon become acquainted with.

But please don’t let that scare you, you will come to realise that those mean teachers just want the best from you and just don’t know how to do that kindly.

But let me introduce myself, my name is Ricky, and of course if you can’t tell I write articles for the magazine ‘RABELAIS’ (the one you’re reading now.) I am one of the article writers for this magazine or as my parents like to call me the filler for the magazine, (love you too mum and dad.)

I generally write about random things, giving advice or complaining because I can’t be bothered going to therapist and it is cheaper just to suck it up and write this stuff down on a article.

But back to giving advice, for you new students please allow me to give you a few tips to help you along.

My first piece of advice is don’t be afraid to ask for directions, La Trobe is massive and very easy to get lost in, I myself have gotten lost and I won’t be surprised if it happens again, my navigational skills are ok but tend to lack, especially when it comes to maps (I’m still struggling with ‘Google Maps’.)

My second piece of advice is always get a goodnight’s sleep, especially during exams, even go the library if you have to for a nap, trust me you won’t be the only one.

My next piece of advice is my favorite as you’re studying you mainly focus on work, and people tend to forget that you if you want to live you need to eat and drink water, when it comes to exams all foods help, the most helpful for me was apples and bananas, believe it or not these two will help you a lot something I wish I knew in highschool and was taught to me back then, apples tend to help with memory and the bananas help with storing and gaining energy. I can’t remember what these fruits contained in vitamins but trust me they work.

My last piece of advice is don’t use ‘z’ use the letter ‘s’ for example once my friend had trouble spelling the word ‘realize’ but came to the truth quickly to realise her potential.

See what I did there. I am so smart.

Unfortunately that is all I can give you in the way of advice for now, (I have a word count I have to stick to.) But don’t worry I’ll be back next week with more advice or complaining about something, I hope you all have a lovely week and enjoy talking your first step into university, expanding your minds and popping brain neurons, I wish you all luck for the year ahead.
