Adelaide

A passion for law led Adelaide to USQ.

As early as Adelaide Cool can remember, studying law has been in her future.

Since she was little, she would argue a point or stick up for the underdog which started jokes and people saying, ‘you should become a lawyer’.

'That started a spark in me, so I delved into it further and ever since I realised that, I had such a passion for it.'

This research led the first-year law student to USQ. Adelaide liked that USQ was a smaller university which meant that she was able to have contact with lecturers, which was important to her.

'It was a great decision with all this craziness during the pandemic. Even though we were all online I would get an email response from my lecturer on the same day, so that was really great.'

Also helping in the “craziness” was the Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship that Adelaide received for getting an OP 6 and putting USQ first on her QTAC application.

'The Become Rewarded scholarships were a factor in why I chose to study at USQ and it has helped me massively.'
