To welcome all the new international students to UC, as always there was an international welcome.
About 200 new students, both full time and study abroad students were welcomed at the A1 lecture theatre with a speech by UC’s Chancellor Dr John Wood, he left behind some business cards for students to contact him if all else fails. He does it very year but no one has ever had the courage to pick one up to date!
The event continued on to ice breaking activities in groups led by a solid team of roughly 15 student mentors. This year’s key activity was to design an All Blacks jersey on a plain white shirt! (See the irony?)
All went well in spite of operating under wet weather plans and as always everyone ended up having a great time and got to know people a little better or meet new people entirely.
