3. A beautiful study environment


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but wow, Dunedin is universally pleasing to the eye. It is sometimes easy to take this place for granted, but you will especially cherish it when you are feeling stressed. Whenever I am stressed, all I need is my iPod and a walk around campus. In a few steps, you are somewhat transported from the confining walls of your office and right smack into an open and welcoming space. It is somewhat calming to be surrounded by greenery, to see a river flowing right in the heart of campus, and sitting under the gaze of the iconic Clocktower. These little breaks are the moments you treasure in your PhD journey.
