Coffee Party 2019

The Coffee Party is a free, all ages, alcohol free event for all UC students to celebrate the end of lectures.  It is brought to you by the UCSA Help (Advocacy & Welfare) team and the UCSA Events team, and will be held on 18th October (Friday) at Haere-Roa from 11am – 2pm.

There will be free coffee/tea, cakes, BBQ, and cuddles with farm animals (and friendly doggies between 12pm and 1pm).  There will also be music, giant games, and stalls featuring the friendly staff from Lifeline, UC Chaplaincy, and UC Counsellors just to name a few.

So come relax on the lawn with soothing music and just chill coz lectures are finally over!!

UCSA Staff of the Year Awards 2019

Voting for Staff of the Year Awards 2019 has opened!

Since 1995, the UCSA Staff of the Year Awards (formerly Lecturer of the Year Awards) gives students a voice in nominating and deciding the most inspiring and dedicated lecturers, supervisors, administrators, and other non-academic staff members who have given students help and support. We also have nominations for what we can simply classify as the “Great Characters” at UC.

For your enjoyment, there’s still a “Make Up Your Own Title” Lecturer Award where you name the award and nominate the lecturer.  It’s fun. Plus, the cheekiest ones will be featured at the award ceremony.

So start nominating your lecturers, supervisors, technical staff who have helped you, library staff who have shown you where your books are, advisors who have guided you, or cleaning staff who have made your life in uni so much better!

Don’t forget, when you nominate (here), you could be in the draw to win 1 of 4 $50 UCSA Cafe vouchers!

**Please note nominating is voting, no reason for a second survey, make your nomination/vote worth it.

**You do not need to vote in every category, but we encourage you to do so if possible.

**Please fill in as much information as you can for the people you are voting for.

**You will have to make a valid nomination in at least one category to be in the draw for the café voucher.

**Voting closes 6 September – late entries will not be considered as valid.
