Cinderella's Impressions

Cinderella's Impressions

Coming from the Cinderella of universities our reporter was most impressed with Australian student facilities. At Adelaide there is a new Union Hall to accommodate five hundred, two separate blocks with lounges and reading rooms for both sexes, a common room in which coffee and sandwiches can be bought at night, an attractive square. "The Cloisters."

Club facilities are very noticeable. There are club rooms for a large number of clubs, two large rooms with supper facilities for evening meetings, and a basement for hobbies.

There is a students' loan fund for those temporarily in need, a W.E.A. book room in the university grounds, and since 1946, a Health Service has been available.

Degrees are conferred and notable functions held in the university's own impressive Bonython Hall.
