Every February, first year university students gather for orientation week, a chance to learn about their university and make new friends before classes start.
This year’s orientation attracted 350 new university students who participated in carnival themed events. Students enjoyed trivia, carnival inspired food, DJ’s and live entertainers in fantastic summer weather.
Sue Kokonis, of Swinburne University described the program as “a vital part of the transition process for incoming students as it helps them prepare for their university experience?”
International students from around the globe also participated in the event. In many cases, orientation is the first time international students have been on the campus and experience Australian culture.
International student volunteer, Jessica Criset Stave, found orientation to be“An absolute thrill. A highlight was getting to know all the new faces and being able to help our fellow students.”
First year University students will start classes on 2 March.
