Microsoft Australia really knows how to treat students. They were the first in the world to offer tertiary students a copy of Office Ultimate for just $75 bucks, and now they’re hosting an event just for students around Australia. Today they’ve opened registrations for Mix On Campus, a free one-day event exclusively for students and lecturers involved in multimedia or web development.

Whilst Microsoft’s other events generally either run straight through a school week and cost a leg to attend, not only is Mix On Campus scheduled to run after everyone’s end-of-year exams, it is also free to attend. Plus, you could also be in the running for some free prizes so if you’re really cheap, you could always eBay them for a little profit. Now there’s no reason not to attend.

Even if you don’t drink the Microsoft kool-aid, it’s a great time to catch up with other students around the city and meet with industry experts who will be speaking whilst drinking some other flavored beverage. The session details and speakers have not yet been confirmed but if it’s anything like its relative ReMIX was, there should be some great content and learning opportunities. Of course expect Silverlight and Expression to be there.

Keep and eye out on the official event blog as well as the Microsoft AU Academic blog for news and updates, but make sure you register as soon as possible because seating is limited. Here is a summary of the events, registration link and Facebook groups.
