At Orientation we welcome new students to the ACU community. We brief them on their course, guide them through administrative requirements and introduce them to their campus and to the wide range of opportunities, services and activities available. Importantly we make sure they have some fun and the chance to make new friends.
A good experience at Orientation is a key element in a student’s transition to university and successful engagement in university life.
Student feedback shows students highly value being able to meet and interact with academic and other university staff during Orientation. It is one of the major things they seek to do.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students, Learning and Teaching) Professor Anne Cummins extends a warm invitation to staff to join in Orientation during session morning breaks and lunchtimes. This is the time students will be enjoying mingling, social and sport activities, entertainment – particularly on the days when the largest numbers of students attend, and, of course, food.
You will be welcome to join colleagues at Orientation information booths, or just chat to students or participate in the activities. T-shirts will be available at the Discover U booths – these will help students identify you.
