What? Why? How? When?

In my humble opinion, orientation week is the week that sets things rolling for the rest of the year. It's a time to get out and enjoy yourself have a good time, meet people, and to see just what's offering on campus.

Life at university does not mean work work work all the tune - I know and so do many others who have found a balance between work and the lighter side of life. It's not hard to enjoy varsity and there are plenty of opportunities to have a good time - just look at the programme - there's music - and good music too (if you missed Waves on Friday - don't miss the folk concert, Split Enz or Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee), wine and cheese evening, a hop, and lots more - interesting as well as lighthearted forums etc., etc

So get out and have a good time

— if you do there'll be far greater

things to come

See ya!
