What is your favourite UQ memory?

“My favourite UQ moment was sitting on the jetty at the UQ Heron Island Research Station, watching the sun set after going for a snorkel over the beautiful coral reef and swimming with some turtles. It really was a pinch yourself moment and I thought it was incredibly cool that I could be there for a university course!”
