Freshers-what is Little Congress?

Freshers-what is Little Congress?

Mr W. Landerth

Mr W. Landerth

It's coming soon and it's something you mustn't miss. We need You — and this is not an advertisement for the Army because you need us! It is part of the orientation programme to introduce you to staff, your fellow students and" to distilled, genuine "university" atmosphere.

What? It is a gathering of staff (we hope) and students from Victoria for a week-end of communal life and intellectual ferment, modelled on the big Congress held annually in the Marlborough Sounds for all New Zealand University students. We held one for the first time in March last year, and another one by popular request in July. Both Little Congresses were phenomenal successes.

Where? At the Otaki City Mission Camp which has four-bunk cabins a big social hall and dining room, table tennis facilities, showers, and all mod cons. We guarantee adequate catering.

When? Late March, from & Friday night to Sunday afternoon.

How Much? As little as possible The total cost (including transport) for the whole weekend will definitely be under £2.

Why? To stimulate student opinion on important contemporary topics, to enjoy provocative lectures from prominent guest speakers and the ensuing free discussion to get to know some "folks around varsity" and to have a wonderful weekend.

Who? Freshers, Congressites naturally, and all students and staff. You won't need any encouragement from us to come along if you have already attended a Little Congress, but for those who let the opportunity slip by last year and lived to regret it, a special welcome. Don't be disappointed again but start the year off with a bang—Little Congress wise!
