Swinburne Registration Day

They have AWESOME management.

Enrolment Form.

Last day of July, the first day for our university's enrolment. Welcome to Swinburne. I finished my foundation and now it's time to move on to the degree. I chose Bachelor in Multimedia Software Development. I came at 7.30am in the morning, hoping to get a good timetable. Well since the receptionist was not there, the enrolment starts around 9am.

WTF. 3 Colors?!

Red represent Engineering, Orange represent Business, Green represent Multimedia, Yellow represent IT. So which color am I suppose to take. First of all, I didn't know such difference on color. I thought, "Just get the number and go enrol!" I was wrong, they gave me Orange stickers (no. 131) in the 1st place. I was told that I got the wrong color, so I went back and switch to Green stickers (no. 15). I ask some staff there that I'm taking Software Development. They told me I should be getting the Yellow stickers (no. 18). WTF?

Busy people.

So we were told to wait at a place and when there's empty space. We will be called depending what course we are taking. First, I heard staff calling for multimedia enrolment student. I raised my hand up. I told them I'm taking Software Development and they told I'm taking Software Engineering and mistaken me as the IT enrolment student. For three times. I've been standing there for rougly 20 minutes.

Luckily, my friend, Ian who had registered helped me ask and I'm good to enter the Multimedia enrolment section! Okay, timetable set. Signed by the staff. Ready to go the enrolment counter. But wait... there's more. The line won't move!

Oh! It's quite near!
After 30 minutes...

Argh! I'm still far away!

And you know what? After 40 minutes, it's my turn! Yay? No. The staff told me that I don't have an offer letter and asked to come back at 2pm. WTF? I mean I've been standing and queuing for almost 4 hours and this is what I get? Stupid management.

Nonetheless, I was pissed off and still came back at 2pm. I was told that I went to the wrong section and proceed to the same counter. Goodness, at least tell me in the 1st place! I don't even need an offer letter. One more thing, if you say I made a mistake, the counter is all other the place is called "Enrolment". So basically, they are the made but they are not. Finally, at 2.30pm, registration done. For god sake.

Taken with a VGA camera. So some pictures are blur. That's all. Thanks for reading my rant. Haha.

that's the general mentality of most Malaysians have.

While I was back in college, the school admin/management was quite afraid of me.

'cos I make sure they delivered what they offered+agreed.

so sometimes, friends got problems, they sent me in, and it's settled.


Kesimpulanya, Know your rights! Don't any how "tidak apa"... at times, we shouldn't be so calculative/demanding, but there are times, we should stand firm on our ground!

anyway, GRATZ! u finally got it done!




(hi crossbone! ^e^
