    Teaching rural and remote – QUT education graduate Emily Craven

    I think what I would say to someone who is considering Mt. Isa or a remote community is, to just do it.

Genuinely, the best thing I have ever done. Hi, my name is Emily Craven and I am a QUT graduate in Education and I now teach full time at Spinifex State College in Mount Isa.

    Denied Education from Full Sail University Because of a Felony and Sex Offender Status

    (suspenseful music) – So I want to talk briefly about a situation that I had with a university, it’s called Full Sail University. And really what I want to say right off the top is, you deserve to get educated, you deserve to go to college if that’s what you choose. So what happened with me is I applied for Full Sail University, that’s the name of the place, it was an online university. I had some classes I was taking in regards to film production and video production and they denied me because of my sex offense.

    UK Living Learning Program – Don’t Just Live Here, Thrive Here

    AM: To me, an LLP is literally and living and learning program. It’s a space where you’re able to live in the dorms and the dorms are you know super nice that’s definitely a perk, but it’s also more than that, because it’s a community. TL: It’s a program that helps students for all I think all kinds of majors or even transfer students get acclimated better to UK. AM: I’m from a really small hometown it has about 400 people, doesn’t even have a stoplight. I was a freshman kind of nervous about college and there were so many students and faculty and LLP Peer Mentors there to help…
