We raise awareness of different issues and fundraise for Animal Liberation NSW. ALMU gives students who care about animals a chance to get involved and take action to work against a cruelty free society.

What kind of events do you hold?

Information stalls, documentary screenings, vegan bake sales, awareness campaigns, social events, interactive demos, animal sanctuary excursions.

If your society had a Pokémon mascot, what would it be?

We don’t believe in trapping fictional creatures and making them fight. (Jk).

What is the best moment you have shared as a society so far?

It’s always great when we visit sanctuaries to meet the animals who have been given a second chance, but one of our greatest moments was bringing our giant inflatable pig onto campus to oppose sow stalls and factory farming of pigs.

Tell us your best joke?

Why is a giraffe’s neck so long?

Because its head is for far away from its body!

What is the best moment you have shared as a society so far?

The best moment we’ve shared as a society is when we competed in Zedtown – multiple members played until the end. We will be joining together as a society at UNSW in September.

Tell us your best joke?

That sad moment when you’re playing Pokémon Go and your phone vibrates but it’s just your service provider letting you know you’ve gone over your data.

Macquarie University HR Club

What are you about?

We are the Macquarie University Human Resources Society or MQ HR Club for short. We run lots of free events like Ubar Pizza nights, Guest Speakers and social events for everyone interested in HR. There are excellent networking prospects and exclusive access to opportunities to put HR theory into practise. We help members to engage in networking with Guest speakers at numerous events throughout the semester.

What kind of events do you hold?

FREE events are the key! All of our events are free because lets be honest we are all cheap uni students!! We have free pizza nights at Ubar where you get the chance to mingle and chat with other uni students and Guest Speakers. We will have a bowling event during the mid-sem break! And of course, an end of year PARTAY!

Join our FREE Pizza night at Ubar! It’s coming up on Tuesday 2nd August from 5-7pm at Ubar. FREE ENTRY/FREE PIZZA/GOOD TIMES.

If your society had a Pokémon mascot, what would it be?

Magikarp – because we are a nee/re-launched club, not many people know about us and know what we do but we have so much potential and chance to grow and evolve into a Gyrados!
