The education aspect of university is just as important as the social. Within the University of Wollongong, there are 476 degrees on offer, and 1,874 subjects to choose from. Many of these classes and lectures take place within UOW’s Hope Theatre. This lecture room is the largest on campus and on a good day, has the potential to hold around 540 students. Throughout this hall, major learning takes place. With an included sound system, giant screen projector and the lecturers ability to see what every single student is doing, it’s a really great lerning environment. The chairs are comfortable, the swingable desks are efficient and the overall atmosphere is quite surreal. It is sometimes even compared to a concert space! And despite it’s size, the room is quite interactive, with lecturers walking up the stairs to get up close and personal with students who are seated higher up, (no matter how hard the students try to avoid it), allowing them to feel like more than just a number.
