Thomas Loft from Denmark is studying a Bachelor of International Business at USC Sunshine Coast and wants to give you;
6 good reasons «not» to study at USC 🙉
1. You get new best friends who you may never see again
During your time at USC you will meet so many incredible new people and without a doubt make friends for life. Whether you meet them on campus, at your accommodation, on a night out in Ocean Street or on one of your many trips these people will, become your best friends and soon you will start hanging out with these people every day. Sadly though, a time will come when you will have to say goodbye to these people, and you won’t be able to see them every day.
2. Your home country will seem incredibly boring when you go back
There’s nothing duller than going back to a rainy, grey and cold day to day life, where you spent as little time as possible outside, when you have just come from the paradise world, such as the Sunshine Coast. All of a sudden there is no more fantastic beaches, no more incredible wildlife and no more perfect weather.
3. Family and friends may hate you a little
Jealousy is an awful thing, but your friends and family will most likely start hating you more and more for every incredible photo you post on Instagram. At first, they may seem happy for you, but before you know it, they won’t even like your photos anymore. 🤷🏽♂️
4. The time at USC may be the best time of your life, so it is all downhill from there
Going to a new country to stay for 6 or more months may be very intimidating at first, but once you settle in and start exploring Australia, the good memories and experiences will soon make you forget, that there once was somewhere else, which you called home. You may go explore the Glasshouse Mountains, visit Noosa National Park, learn to surf, go for a weekend trip to beautiful Brisbane or Melbourne or even go skydiving. The endless possibilities and the overflow of new experiences may be the peak of your life’s adventures, so sadly it’s all downhill from there. 😅
5. You spend way too much time planning trips
All the time you would have spent back home, just going through your phone or watching random tv-shows are all of a sudden gone and you now spend that time planning awesome trips with awesome people. This is precious time that you will never get back, and you will definitely miss out on watching that 4th season of “Ice Road Truckers” and miss a bunch of not-so-funny memes. (It might be worth it though) 🌞
6. You will definitely get a post USC depression
Post-travel depression is the worst. It just hurts in your soul, that your travels are over. Upon returning home from USC (if you don’t decide to stay in Australia), everything is suddenly back to normal and all you have left is some amazing pictures and some memories. You will miss everything and everyone from your time at USC. Your flirt, your best friends, the smells, the food, the area and the feeling of freedom won’t be there anymore, and you might cry a little that it is all over.
