Uni days start with a bang during O Week

BEACH cricket, parties and an amazing race are just a sprinkling of the highlights that make up the 'summer fun' theme of O Week's Unidayz at Southern Cross University this year.

For the first time, all three campuses are adopting the same theme for O Week, which runs from today until Friday.

"O Week is the biggest university-wide event of the year, and there's more activities than ever before," organiser Ann-Maree Wilkinson said.

SCU will welcome more than 2000 commencing students across the Coffs Harbour, Lismore and Tweed Gold Coast campuses in semester one.

Orientation Week is not only a great opportunity for students to become familiar with their campus and classmates, it's also a time to learn essential study skills to help them through their all-important first semester.

Across all campuses, each School is running compulsory information sessions and Learning Assistance workshops to assist new students.

At Coffs Harbour, Head of Campus Dr Rosie Wickert will welcome students tomorrow in the D block lecture theatre.

Some of the O Week events include an Ice Breakers Party, a Trivia Night, a Carnival Day and a Recovery Day featuring beach cricket, all being organised by Coffs Harbour Student Association.
