Becoming a Women’s College Associate also provides social connections within the Women’s College community and to other colleges on campus. It is great for students who are commuting, are new to Brisbane or living in accommodation where meeting like-minded women is difficult.

“The Associate Program has hugely benefited me academically and has allowed me to meet some great new people over the past two years. Not once did I feel like ‘just an Associate’ – the warm environment of Women’s is something I will greatly miss. I hope that the Associate Program continues to grow in coming years. Thank you again!” – Ellen Taylor, 2014/2015 Women’s College Associate Member
