Captain of the Y Netball team, and Bachelor of Veterinary and Wildlife Science student, Gemma Mintern of Tooradin says participating in sport on campus is a great way to connect and encourages all students to join in. 

“It’s a great way to meet students across the campus on a different level than my degree can offer. It also recognises the benefits of sport, recreation and fitness to a healthy university community as well as supporting health and fitness activities while studying,” Gemma said.
