Save the offcampus Revision Weekends

It\'s come to the attention of the undersigned that the Deakin Faculty of Law is considering discontinuing the Revision Weekends for off-campus students. We have found the revision weekends to be absolutely essential to success in our studies: they help fix the knowledge in our heads, give us a chance to interact with other students and especially teachers, and generally provide support, encouragement, and peace of mind. The news that the revision weekends might be discontinued is very bad news for all of us, and this is a plea to continue them. Consider that these weekends are, for the undersigned, the only time they ever get to have the kind of stimulating discussion that only a real-life environment can provide. Consider how concerned we are to get the best possible marks, so as to have a good job on the other side of uni. Consider the difficulty many of us have in getting to these weekends, what with family commitments and being tired from a week\'s work--and how we still come. We would thus like to respectfully submit that it is in our best interests for the revision weekends to continue, and in our worst interests for them to stop. Please--do not stop them! Thank you, The Undersigned

    7 years ago Comments: I was unaware of any off campus revision week ends, where were they advertised I want to also know what off campus class i am in but have been unable to find that out as well. So i can see there is a lack of communication between deakin and off campus students, just maybe this is why the numbers are down, Also why are the revision week ends just at one campus can they be offered to all campuses working with DUSA. And everyone seems to have forgotten the overseas students! As an off campus melbourne student who does not have the money to even go to burwood suggest elive revision sessions for all subjects as this is like a class environment and interactive. With the new technology we are already using i can not beleive this was not considered. (Disabled students!)
