First impressions…

It’s just over six weeks since our first students moved into Iglu Chatswood and they are all having a great time getting to know the building, our team and each other.

For many students, this is the first time they have lived away from home so it’s a very new and exciting experience. Things will evolve over time – new students will move in, friendships will blossom and everyone will find their favourite places to hang out together or alone. One thing that won’t change is their first impression of their new home. They say first impressions can be long lasting so we asked our first students a couple of questions to learn more about them, why they chose Iglu Chatswood and what they love about it so far… Here’s what they said…
