O Week 2014 (Orientation)

O Week 2014 - 24-28 February

O Week is a fun and informative week of activities to help you become familiar with the CSU environment and settle into being a uni student.

For many students, Orientation will be the first taste of university life. We want to make your Orientation as enjoyable and helpful as possible by offering a range of activities to help you feel at home.

As well as being heaps of fun, O Week gives you a flying start to uni life. You'll meet other students in your course, your lecturers and many support staff who'll be available to help you while you're at CSU.

Check out your campus facilities, sporting and recreation areas, and eating outlets while meeting new people and classmates. You can take a tour of the library, pick up your Student ID card, and attend workshops and information sessions, ensuring your transition to university is a positive experience.
