Your one and only source into the scandalous lives of the Mannix College Students’ Society

East vs. West Cricket! (Nice legs boys)

I hope that you have all enjoyed your first week ever at Uni (or back at Uni for us second and third years) and that it hasn’t been too much of a shock to the system! Whilst most of us struggled to make it to those early morning tutes this week (that’s if we did make it…), I for one have had a ripper week and can’t wait to continue the good times over the coming days!

FUNCTION OUTDOOR CINEMA CLUB Come along for a chilled out night on the back astro, with sweet beanbags, good movies and great company!


The Best Cricket Joke of the Day*


Jones had taken his wife to a cricket match. She sat through the first innings although plainly bored. In the second innings a batsman gave a tremendous swipe and knocked the ball out of the ground. 'Thank goodness they got rid of it,' she sighed. 'Now we can all go home.’

$2 entry - free popcorn and soft drink… what more could you want?
