Welcome! You’re reading Parkville Station (well, the website of…), a new weekly campus newspaper available for free throughout semester.
In an age in which print media is said to be dying, we’re starting a newspaper because we believe that the University of Melbourne should be a community as well as a place of learning and research.
We’ve got our ears firmly to the ground, and the latest news (serious and trivial) can always be
found at the front of our paper. Each week, we’ll have events listings, job ads, classifieds and reviews, and this week we’ve put a super useful campus map on the back.
For first years about to hit O-Week and start Uni, we have a Week 1 crash course on page 5, the skinny on first-year lectures on page 7, and a guide to O-Week on page 8.
We hope that you’ll enjoy reading what’s in this O-Week edition (as well as enjoying O-Week!), and will grab a copy of the paper each week of semester — it will be published every Monday, and you can always get a copy around campus.
