Once a Bondy, always a Bondy. And sometimes, it takes another Bondy to understand the inside jokes, terminology and memories we shared at university.
Whether your time at Bond was as short as a single study abroad semester, or a degree that turned into one or two more, Bondies past and present will be familiar with these unique experiences.
You know you’re a Bondy when…
You’ve pulled an all-nighter in the Bat Labs
Is it 4pm or 4am? Who knows.
You've tripped on the Thinking Stairs
Don't text and climb, people.
You’ve confused a non-Bondy by referring to semesters only in numbers
192 and 211 make perfect sense - to Bond students at least! You’ve probably also met another Bondy and introduced yourself with your name, quickly followed by your starting semester.
You’ve arranged to meet a friend “under the Arch”
A universally acknowledged meeting point for all Bondies.
You’ve been having a deep and meaningful conversation in the quadrangle, only to be interrupted by the bells
Nothing says ‘it’s lunchtime’ like the dulcet tones of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.
You’ve wondered if maybe there really are bull sharks in the lake
The baby sharks might be able to swim through the grate, right?
You’ve lined up for a sausage at Wednesday by the Water
The only thing better than a Bunnings or democracy sausage is a free WBTW sausage.
You’ve been on a Week 13 Market Square run
“Does anyone want anything from the IGA?”
You’ve felt the wrath of a nesting plover while walking across the Ornamental Lawns
They might seem cute, but they can be vicious.
You’ve met a Bondy in a foreign city and immediately hit it off
Did we just become best friends? Nothing says an instant bond like... well, Bond.
You’ve been transported to the set of a Baz Luhrmann film at Palaver
Your time at Bond isn’t complete without a night at Don’s.
You know the food and beverage staff by name
“A skinny latte please, Daryl!”
You’ve almost passed out in a boxing class
Scott and Richard are hard task masters.
You’ve stopped to take a photo of the Arch from the bridge over the lake
This view never gets old.
