TEXT ON SCREEN: We asked RMIT Connect staff and students some first year questions. Here's what they had to say.
- It like, goes like, uh... And then
- In which...?
- Pretty sure I'm in love with my tutor, what should I do?
- Um... Well..
- Take it to the rooftop.
- You can go first I guess.
- Why? Oh okay, I'll do it.
- Uh, hello, my name is Con. I've been studying at RMIT for one year. I'm a second year business student and I've been working for three weeks now.
- Um, I'm also third-year automotive engineering.
-Okay, so you know enough about RMIT to hopefully help first-years with some of their...
- Alright, my name is Jess.
- My name is Quintin, I study Bachelor of Science majoring in Mathematics.
- So I'm studying a Bachelor of Business.
- I'm Stefan and I study a degree in Osteopathy at the Bundoora campus.
- Why are the building 10 lifts, uh why are the building 12 lifts in Building 10? Is this part of my degree? I love Building 8, 10, 12, as I've been doing tours and explaining it as 8, 10, 12 because it's all one building. It's all one whole place.
- It's like another dimension shift or something. I feel like that would be why.
- Mmm, yeah.
- Does it open on one side and close on the other?
- Yeah, that's what I heard. In my first class they told me about them. You gotta just ask your lecturers
- So it is in your degree.
- Ask your lecturers about the dimension shifts, for sure.
- Ask around. Feel free to ask around. People are helpful enough and friendly enough to help you find your way there.
- Is it true that someone died in a revolving door?
- Absolutely, yeah, I think it was two of them at the same time.
- Really? I heard three. Actually I heard that everyone just went in there at once and it just killed everyone.
- The RMIT ones are sometimes so slow, you kind of suspect that someone did, because
- They have to..
- It would have been going too fast and then somehow they died and RMIT is like nah OH&S.
- Now we've got to make them real slow.
- We are not having this, we are slowing these doors down to the state where students can not even move in the campus.
- One person per section, guys. One person.
- I smoked my assignment. Does RMIT have a back up system?
- Better than my dog ate my assignment. You just smoke it. But... and... if you smoked it, and it was backed up, you'd have to smoke the computer.
- Or the USB?
- Always back up your files. Back up and back up, so you'll have, I guess, a digital copy, I don't know.
- What do you think he meant by smoked?
- Meaning that the computer just died.
- Like, who goes like, and then?
- In which case...
- Like, it's allon the computer.
- In which case, backing up still stands as the appropriate means.
- Yeah, and if you keep it up on the cloud you'll never lose it.
- That's right. And with Microsoft Outlook and 360, you'll be able to access the One Drive and then also we still have Google Drive going so you can put your files on there.
- Can I study on campus after hours? No. Don't do that.
- Yes you can. I'm not sure when the campus is open to.
- You can, you can everywhere. There are so many places you can study. There are study rooms, there are private rooms, there are study areas, there are bean bags, you can chill, you can study. The city library is usually open until midnight.
- He's here more than I am.
- If you swipe your student card you can actually get in, I think.
- Yeah, or you could go out.
- It's almost like good cop, bad cop going on.
- But yeah, no, they are open. I think you can get the swipe cards to open you in any time, so yeah.
- You can request an artist keycard from Building 5 and you should be able to access a lot of facilities and study places.
- We can let you study any time you want to study, I guess.
- Where is the best place to make out on campus?
- Do you have any secret spots?
- Um, anywhere in public. Just go for it anywhere.
- In the city! Um, yeah, I'd say if I had to pick somewhere I think there's a basketball court up near 56, 57.
- Vegan cafe, Bundoora. Yeah.
- The rooftop building's got a nice view as well.
- I reckon on top of Academic Street. Like, the new rooftop section.
- Oh, you had that answer really quick there Quintin.
- Yeah I was thinking about it the other day.
- You had that locked and loaded.
- What about you Jess?
- If you'd like to be amongst nature even though we're in the city. Definitely a good spot.
- Yeah. Good for a rooftop pash.
- Not that you would do that at campus.
- Uh... Did you see how nervous I got there?
- Just secluded places are highly recommended.
- Maybe, I would say, maybe in the library. They have this seating that kind of looks like a clam and it comes down.
- Oh the Death Star?
- The desks...
- I call it the Death Star.
- They look like Death Stars. They kind of clamp down and then they look a little bit like a Death Star and there's a desk in the middle. Maybe you could snuggle up really close and put your arms around each other.
- It would work, except for the Swanston Library is 100% packed all day every day.
- Oh, you know what though, after hours access. If you guys both go after hours access then you can find
- A nice place after hours to make out.
- Don't know if there's cameras but you can play it if you want.

AUDIO - DIALOGUE:
-No one's said the lifts yet.
- The lifts! Oh like Grey's Anatomy style. Touche. But then again, there's so many other people in the lifts. Maybe the lifts after hours. In addition to...
- Just don't make it during hours is what Jess is trying to say. She just doesn't wanna see it, right?
