Alumni profile Portrait of ACU student Ella McNulty

Ella McNulty

ACU Graduate, Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing)

"My university experience was amazing. I made a great groups of friends and I found that ACU had a great social environment. Academically the tutors and Head of School took a real interest in my development. They were always available when I needed to chat.

"I had some lecturers and tutorial teachers who went above and beyond their call of duty to help me. There was a time that I was on the phone to my lecturer at 7am because I was having trouble before an exam. It really felt like their main priority was making sure we did well.

"I like the fact that it was a smaller campus and the university seemed very hands on with the students, offering extra help to those who asked for it. I also liked the fact that they focused some of the learnings around corporate and social responsibility."
