My Tuesday morning before heading to USC: coffee brew with a view #bestofbothworlds #coolumbeach (Taken with Instagram at Coolum Beach)  Tuesday is my “day” and what a stunning morning to kick off my part in our photo essay! There’s a little bit of a chill in the air now - well we are in June - but often these cool winter days are some of the best.  I moved to the Sunshine Coast three years ago after ten years of city-living. While I didn’t study at USC, I did complete my B

No rainy day blues on the Sunshine Coast. #bestofbothworlds (Taken with Instagram)    A note from Jacqui on a rainy public holiday…    Even the rain is beautiful here. In a break in the weather this morning, I caught these rain drops glistening in the sun. Perfect little spheres…amazing!    Plenty of sun and rain make the Coast so beautiful. It’s a great environment to live and study. It’s the best of both worlds.

Happy hump day. Does it still count when it’s a three day week? Only thing better than a long weekend is two in a row.  While winter might mean cold water, our beaches stay stunning all year. Taken at Happy Valley in Caloundra, we’re looking west over the northern end of the Pumicestone Passage, with the Glasshouse Mountains in the far distance.  It’s one of my favourite spots on the Coast, and for good reason - a quality surf beach, lots of parkland and green space, a strip of g

It’s a peaceful morning while I watch students walk and cycle over from Student Accommodation. Where else could you live on the water 5min walk from campus? Can’t help but think the fresh air, sunshine and ducks playing around on the lake must have a calming effect on these students as they make their way over for exams. I know sitting down here this morning has been the perfect start to my day… shame the ducks wouldn’t hang around to make an appearance in my photo!  Hayle

Breakfast in Buderim #bestofbothworlds #Buderim (Taken with Instagram)  This morning I caught up with some friends (who also work at USC!) for breakfast before work. We choose Buderim as it’s only a ten minute drive from campus, and a central place for us to meet. Our breakfast dates are a great way to catch up on the goings on outside of work while also indulging in some yummy, fresh, local food.   Maria

O-Week was one of the funnest Uni moments I have had so far. I love the fact that I didn”t have to move away from the coast to gain a Uni degree. Another winning point for me is the kangaroo”s, it is incredible that we can be so close to them! Everything about USC makes the Uni enjoyable. Why iLike USC Competition week 1 winner Caitlyn Turner.

It’s hard to believe it’s winter on the Coast when you can still get down the beach and lap up the sun. My pride and joy beach cruiser is by far the best (and most comfortable!) way to get around. When it’s a beautiful sunny day our cruiser bike gang (no leather jackets needed… just the latest cruiser accessory can earn you entry) will take a ride up along the beach to Maroochydore or even down to the Spit for fish and chips.
