Sidere mens eadem mutato



That's latin for "The stars change, [but] the mind [remains] the same". I've been studying at The University of Sydney for 5 years and I've only just found out what our motto means!

The University of Sydney is the oldest university in Australia (established in 1850), and one of the first buildings to be built when the university moved to its present location was the Quadrangle building (part of which is pictured here). It was designed by Edmund Blacket and completed in 1862. It's a beautiful sandstone building, and it provides quite a grand atmosphere to the whole university - its 'central feature', if you will. There will be more photos in the future, so I can show you what I mean:)

Salut Tomate! If you want to add the counter thing, just click on the bit that says "NeoCOUNTER", all you have to do is give them an email, and then you can have one too! :)
