South Lawn, 11AM-3PM

Set yourself up for the whole year! Wednesday is dedicated to introducing you to the different UMSU departments that will support you during your time at Uni. If you’re passionate about student issues, or if you would like to know more about the many services UMSU offers, get on down to South Lawn and connect with your student representatives.

Hey, even if you’re not the connecting type, there’ll be great places to chill out, BBQs, free cupcakes and more things to see than you can point an iPhone at. In the event of fine weather, take a moment to settle into a beanbag and people-watch as the day unfolds around you.

Get into Academic Orientation by attending your choice of a range of workshops and sessions to help you settle into university life.

Still energised? There’s more:

  • Get connected at Speed Friending and make fast friends at 3.30pm at the Grand Buffet in Union House.
  • Then cap off the day by snuggling into a beanbag with some free pizza and Cinema Night from 5pm in Union House. Movie: GHOSTBUSTERS!

This event is going to be filmed. Please alert the photographer if you do not wish to be filmed.
