New students starting at Macquarie this semester should not miss what’s planned for Orientation Week. O Week as many call it, officially runs from Monday 23 – Monday 30 July, but there are a range of activities also planned before and after these dates.
O Week’s exciting program of welcome events, workshops, drop-in sessions, social activities and tours will help you discover the campus, experience university life and find out everything you need to know to prepare for the start of classes.
There’s lots to see and do but one of the best things about starting your student journey here at Macquarie is getting involved with our extra-curricular activities and having fun. During O Week, there are over 100 student societies who will bring the campus to life on Friday 27 and Monday 30 July at their O Week stalls. Ranging from sport societies to academic and religious groups to those catering for the performing arts, there is certainly something for everyone. Check out these and many more at our drop-in sessions.
You should also get along to your faculty’s welcome event. These are important sessions that you should attend, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet your peers and be guided through key information to get you off to a great start. You’ll also meet your Macquarie University Mentors. These are student guides who’ll be able to guide and support you as you transition to university life.
Current students should also join in as it’s a great opportunity to reconnect with peers in Session 2.
So how do you find out what’s in store? Choose your interests from the events program and then register now to create your personalised schedule so you’ll not miss out on any of the things important to your university induction.
