Well, its definitely possible to combine studies, parties and surfing at Griffith or Bond Uni. But of course its easier to fail if you party to much. So the less u party and the more u study, the better the grades will be.
I went 2 Griffith for 3 years and had friends from both Griffith and Bond Uni. I got the feeling that Bond Uni is more focused on the social part, like arranging parties/activities so students can get 2 know eachother better.
Ofcourse Griffith Uni does this too, but my Bond friends tended to be invited to more parties/activities at Bond than me and my Griffith friends were at Griffith. So Bond is trying harder to make their students 2 get 2 know eachother.
But Bond is also more expensive to study at.

i have been going to griffith for the past two years and have found it really hard to get involved in the social scene and make friends with other uni students. im moving into Nathan campus and i hope that will help but can anyone give me some tips on how to meet more people. im kinda shy but im sick of staying home all the time. the only advavantage is that im am getting good grades but i really want to make new friends.

Bond uni is known as the place to go when you can't get into a real uni - I work in the legal profession and we wont even give an interview to someone from Bond. SO - if you cant get in anywhere else you pay for your piece of paper rather than earning your degree and thereby our respect.

Well thats funny, coz heaps of my mates who went to Bond are working at top tier firms in Sydney. If you don't hire Bond ppl then you must not be working in one of those firms.
Student Council at Bond organise heaps of social events and they have buses into Surfers on Thursday nights. I reckon Griffith would do the same.
Bond is a smaller uni so I would say everyone gets on better but more people go to Griffith so you would have a chance to meet more people there. Bond has about 30 sports clubs (inc a Surf club)
Why don't you email the Student Council/Guild and try and get a vibe from them?

Go to bond, its so much easier you dont have to pass any subjects your parents just pay your way through. When you come out you wont get a good job in the real world but who cares you will just take over your parents company like all the other students
