UCOL opens up for O-Week

UCOL welcomes new and returning students during O-Week which starts next Tuesday.

The annual event will kick off with a Powhiri in the UCOL Atrium on Tuesday 26 February. The Powhiri starts at 9.30am and will be followed by the customary UCOL Big Breaky with hot food and drinks for everyone.

Wednesday’s Market Day will feature several local businesses showing the products and services (often discounted) they have to offer students. There will be giveaways, competitions and activities.

AS@U will be on the grill cooking up a fabulous lunch for all. Free doughnuts, free lunch, free drinks… what a welcome!

Students and non-students over 18 years of age are invited to join the Black Night Pub-crawl. The event starts at 6.00pm on Friday 1 March. Tickets are limited and can be purchased for $5 from V@ult – the Students Association’s bright green building at 137 Queen Street. Go to AS@U’s Facebook page and ‘like’ to get more details and there is also a chance to win free tickets.
