Are you finding food less affordable? Tell us your experience

Postgrads are doing it tougher than usual with power bills and food costing more. SUPRA, along with the SRC and USU, will be meeting with the University’s Office of Student Life this Friday to discuss this issue. Together, we are aiming to find ways to make nutritious food accessible to students at low cost or for free. If you have experienced problems in affording food or have ideas to help postgrads, please let us know by contacting: vice.president@supra.usyd.edu.au. We would love to have your input and ideas.

If you need help with finding financial assistance, contact us and our caseworkers will help you. Read our article on available financial assistance, and check out the financial support vouchers and interest free loans available for Usyd students.

Fun Fact

A yuzu bath is a tradition celebrated on the winter solstice in Japan. Yuzu fruits are floated in the water of natural hot springs while bathing, and are believed to protect against colds, warm the body, and relax the mind. Many Japanese zoos now prepare a yuzu bath for their resident capybaras on the winter solstice. Watch capybaras take a yuzu bath at the Saitama Childrens Zoo.
