Macquarie University is home to a large[vague] collection of outdoor sculptures, including Joy, alleged to be the only public statue of a prostitute in the world. The statue has a particularly eventful story: it was originally located in Darlinghurst, New South Wales, but was vandalized numerous times, including by a woman who believed that it bore too close a resemblance to her deceased prostitute daughter.[1] Prostitution is the sale of sexual services (typically manual stimulation, oral sex, sexual intercourse, or anal sex) for cash or other kind of return, generally indiscriminately with many persons. ...

Macquarie City College

Unlike the majority of universities in Australia, Macquarie University has been a one-campus university (with the exception of a small office in Sydney's CBD for Macquarie Graduate School of Management and one in Manly for for few courses) for much of its history. However in July 2007 Macquarie City College has been established in Wynyard, Sydney. Offering a number of programs for full-fee paying, mainly international students, the new college is to be operated by IBT Education (which also runs the Sydney Institute of Business and Technology in Macquarie's main campus), with Macquarie University providing quality control and conferring degrees.[1] Some academics have expressed concerns about how this joint venture will maintain its teaching quality, an issue also affecting other universities active in the burgeoning inner-city "shopfront campus" scenes in Sydney and other Australian cities.[2] This article needs additional references or sources for verification. ...

History

With the rapid expansion of Sydney's size and population in the 1960s, there arose a need for a third tertiary institution in the Sydney metropolitan area (in addition to the more centrally-located University of New South Wales and the University of Sydney). A future campus location was selected in what was then a semi-rural part of North Ryde, and - after much debate - it was decided that the future university be named after Lachlan Macquarie, an important early governor of the colony of New South Wales. The 1960s decade refers to the years from January 1, 1960 to December 31, 1969, inclusive. ...

The Macquarie University was formally established in 1964 with the passage of the Macquarie University Act 1964 by the New South Wales Government, the University first opening to students in 1967. At the time the University was hailed as a "radical, bold experiment",[citation needed] with all students undertaking a single degree with a wide variety of subjects. While this is no longer the case, interdisciplinary study remains a defining feature of Macquarie University. Year 1967 (MCMLXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full calendar) of the 1967 Gregorian calendar. ...


The Macquarie Graduate School of Management was subsequently established in 1969. In 1990 the University absorbed the Institute of Early Childhood Studies of the Sydney College of Advanced Education, under the terms of the Higher Education (Amalgamation) Act 1989.

Restructure of student organisations amid fraud allegations

The Sydney Morning Herald and The Australian newspaper reported on May 4, 2007, that Macquarie University has "called in police after an audit raised serious questions about management of hundreds of thousands of dollars in funds by student organisations" [2] At the centre of this investigation is Victor Ma, member of the Liberal Party and president of the Macquarie University Students' Council (MUSC), who had previously been involved in a high-profile case of student election 'fixing' at the University of Sydney [3]. He is being investigated for "about $2400 spent on a Liberal Party fundraising dinner and whether there were fictitious employees on the MUSC payroll." [2] Kyle Kutasi, secretary of the Students at Macquarie (SAM) student union, and former President of the Sydney University Liberal Club said he was unaware of movement of money. Sean Garman, a former Macquarie University Liberal Club president who boasted in 2006 that "we have whipped the Left (at Macquarie) like how sadists whip masochists", resigned as vice-chairman of MUSC. "I have been helping the university in some ways with their investigation." [2][4] This was raised previously in New South Wales Parliament by Labor MP Kristina Keneally in 2006.[5] ...

Following a meeting of the University Council on on May 4 2007, the Council resolved to immediately remove the President of the student association Students At Macquarie (SAM), Victor Ma, from his position, as well as certain other SAM Directors not appointed by the University or elected by SAM staff. The action was necessary to ensure that student fees collected by SAM were not misused. The Vice Chancellor Professor Schwartz said “The issues that led to the removal of the outgoing SAM President convince me of the urgent need to reform Macquarie’s main student bodies to ensure that they are transparent, accountable and properly represent the needs of students rather than the self-interests of elected officials.” [6] Mr Ma responded by saying "I think there's a bit of character assassination going on," and "I can only wonder who's doing it." [7] // Introduction Professor Steven Schwartz is the new Vice Chancellor at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia from February 1 2006. ...


The Federal Court ordered on May 23 2007 that Macquarie University Union Ltd (MUUL), which traded as Students At Macquarie (SAM), and Venues At Macquarie[clarify] would be wound up.[citation needed]


The winding up of these bodies paves the way for the establishment of the proposed new student organisation which will be managed by the University to ensure its operations are transparent and accountable. This organisation will be funded partly by membership of the student union and partly by the University and will properly represent the needs of students.


The board for this organisation is currently being established under a new legal entity. There is one student representative who is also the student representative on University Council. All board positions will be unpaid. [8]

Macquarie University is nicknamed Club Mac (an allusion to Club Med), because Macquarie students supposedly have more holidays than their counterparts from the other universities in Sydney. This is only half-true, for while Macquarie students have longer holidays, they do not have pre-exam breaks ("stuvac" or studying vacation) as students from the other universities do. Typically, full-time undergraduate students attend classes for 26 weeks a year, this excludes exam time, which can add 1-4 weeks to each semester (depending on timetabling and individual circumstances).

A one-day alternative music festival was held on the Macquarie University campus in 1997 called Equinox (as it was held on the Southern Hemisphere Autumn equinox) - which included major international acts including Tool, Skunk Anansie and a then relatively unknown blink-182. Noise complaints were received from neighbouring suburbs including Epping and Beecroft. The cause was apparently the just constructed M2 Motorway as it had "channeled" the sound from university into the neighbouring suburbs [citation needed], and thus no major rock concerts have been held at Macquarie since besides Conception Day.

The biggest event at the university is Conception Day, an annual festival organised by SAM.
