Charles Sturt University
Charles Sturt University (CSU) is an Australian multi-campus university in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory; Wagga Wagga is CSU's largest campus, spreading over 640 hectares.
The reason for my stay in Australia was to visit my husband who was doing research at CSU; I went there towards the end of his one-year stint. Visiting the uni one weekend, I was amazed at the vast expanse of the campus. It was also amusing to see “different” road signs, such as “echidna crossing” and “duck crossing”. Vehicles had to be on the lookout for kangaroos that would suddenly appear in the middle of the road!
It was very convenient to get to the uni on workdays since there was a uni bus that stopped right on Baylis St which was just a few minutes walk from Railway St.
