scrunchies, a task that most involved had never attempted before.

The scrunchie making initiative is part of the universities “My Mornings Matter” program, which aims to give students an incentive to get up in the morning and offer them alternative social opportunities.

Journalism student, Mollie Gorman, was one of the many students who participated in the scrunchie making extravaganza and though she struggled with using a sewing machine, was very pleased with the end result.

“It was great to have the option to do something constructive and fun with my morning, as opposed to staying in bed and feeling tired for the rest of the day”, she said.

The My Mornings Matter program is being led by CSU’s Residence Life Student Initiative Coordinator, Isabel Fox, who is striving to change university culture and find new avenues for all students to feel involved that isn’t centred around partying.
