Students at UOW were asked:
What would you be doing if you weren’t a student at UOW?
Excessive soul-searching wasn’t a requirement.
The expected answers?
Oh, I’d need to get a job, I’d be doing my preferred/second choice degree,
I’d be living somewhere else.
Maybe the shadow of disappointment and missed opportunity?
The unexpected, and most pleasing element: all respondents were open and engaging.
Everyone had a good, old-fashioned think, and spoke in detail about what might have been.
How might you have answered?
