My first impression of the Queensland University of Technology campus was that it is absolutely beautiful. They are lucky enough to be right on the end of Brisbane's Botanical Garden which is absolutely gorgeous. I'm jealous that we don't have anything resembling that right by the U's campus. The natural vegetation is exotic, colorful, and in full bloon right now since Australia is in the middle of its Autumn season. I envy each of the QUT students for getting to experience walking through this whenever they please. All of the building on campus look so new and modern, yet at the same time resemble the old buildings on the mall area on East Bank of our campus. The students who took us on the tour of campus and parts of the city mentioned that Brisbane has only recently been becoming a growing city. Apparently, one thousand people migrate to the city each month! One thing is for sure, I could definitely see myself living over here at some point in my life as well.
