University of Sydney is Happy!

23 May 2014

Heading to Australia to study? You must be happy!
Riding the popular musical wave created by musical artist and producer (and fashion designer) Pharrell Williams with his song “Happy” from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack and his newest release, G I R L, Sydney-based director Amath Magnan released his own version of the popular video—as did many cities across the globe—to help showcase the gorgeous coastal locale to the rest of the world.

The University of Sydney Hip Hop Society puts their spin on it

The University of Sydney Hip Hop Society, SoulXPress decided to do their own version of the video as well, and it is filmed entirely at the University of Sydney, Camperdown & Darlington campuses. Founded in 2006, SoulXPress is the main presence of hip hop and street culture at the university. Their aim is to promote the four aspects of hip hop culture, including dance, DJ, MC and graffiti. The society specialises in street style dance offering opportunities to learn hip hop, breaking, popping, locking, urban choreography and much more! Have a look at their Facebook page.

Clubs at the University of Sydney

The University of Sydney Union (USU) supports approximately 200 clubs and societies that students can join to pursue their own interests.
All clubs and societies organize their own activities and events. Being a part of one is a great way to get involved in campus life, to meet people who share your interests and to gain valuable organizational experience. There are clubs and societies focused on politics, culture, the arts, religion, hobbies, departments and faculties.
The sorts of opportunities brought to you through Clubs and Societies give you a once-in-a-lifetime chance to gain experience in a friendly environment. Once you leave university and enter the workforce, these opportunities are seldom available. It is these opportunities that allow us all to gain an education that extends far beyond the classroom.
University of Sydney student organizations can also be key providers of support, advocacy and advice during your time on campus.
If there isn’t a club that caters to your interests, you can create your own!
