The New Academic Street project offered RMIT students a unique opportunity to learn and interact with a major construction project.
Whether it was by attending public lectures delivered by industry leaders working on the construction program, creating art to be displayed on the hoarding or photographing the new spaces, the NAS project provided a variety of ways for students to get involved in the action.
The 2017 Student Experience initiatives concentrated on implementing student run initiatives, celebrating the launch of new spaces and activating new ideas with a strong focus on Work Integrated Learning (WIL).
