With a record 2.4 tonnes of consumed kernels, Swinburne students pipped their Malaysian counterparts at the annual Popcorn Eating Championships. Little wonder. With discounted movie tickets at Lido Cinemas on Wednesdays, they get more money for popcorn.
The only part that’s true is about the discounted movie tickets. Just flash your student ID for $8 tickets before 4pm on a Wednesday. Discover more ways we can help you save money.
Melbourne’s home of the hipster, coffee aficionado, and four seasons in a day. But it’s also home to one of the biggest fault lines in the world: the Salyaw Fault. Yep, Melbourne, quite literally, is THE city for movers and shakers.
There’s no fault line here, but we do have a machine in our Smart Structures Lab that simulates earthquakes. It was used to test structures in the wake of the 2011 Christchurch earthquake, so that better, safer structures could be developed.
In the summer of ’92 Nirvana played an intimate gig at Nevermind bar, near the corner of Burwood and Glenferrie roads. Look closely at the bathroom doors – you might spot Kurt Cobain’s scrawled expletive scratched into the wood.
Fiction. Though Chet Faker used to DJ here and you’ll also find $16 jugs and trivia under their roof. Still pretty impressive.
Glenferrie Gourmet Meats has a secret menu of hot food that they’ll prepare fresh. It’s like a home-cooked meal with the family, except the only thing getting grilled is whatever meat your heart (or stomach) desires.
True. Though it’s not really a secret now, is it?! They’ll also give you a student discount. Vego? Mr and Mrs Bahn Mi have options from $8.50.
Wear the same Hawaiian shirt to every lecture, upload your selfies to Swinburne’s Insta and we’ll take you to… Yep, you guessed it: Hawaii.
Alright, so this one’s kind of a stretch. While we can’t sponsor your Hawaiian holiday, if you’re into stars, you’ll be into the fact that our astronomers can control the telescopes of the Keck Observatory (in Hawaii) from right here in Hawthorn. Dazzling but TRUE!
