How will you make the most of mid-semester break?

Mid-semester break is here!
Here are some tips on making the most of it.  

  • Mid-semester break is a great chance to spend some time on your studies. Make time to finish an assignment early, plan ahead or get your head around a tricky concept you haven’t quite mastered. Karawhuia! Give it heaps!
  • If you are feeling a little bit overwhelmed with assignments or want to get ahead before exams, check out the resources on offer at the Pokapū Pūkenga Ako | Academic Skills Centre. They cover everything from understanding essay questions to referencing and lab reports to tips for giving a talk. And don’t forget to keep an eye out for workshops and seminars coming up in Term 3.
  • Most importantly it’s all about balance – me whakatā, take some time for yourself, recharge, rest, hang out with mates and do a few things you really enjoy. And remember to celebrate everything you’ve achieved so far.

UC Rec & Sport – tips for staying active :

  1. Try something new – Group Fitness will run over the mid-semester break, so you can turn up and try Yoga, Spin, Fit45 and more!

2. Get outdoors – try to get out and about at least once a day. Take a walk to the park to read your book or listen to music, or simply to just sit and relax in some green space.

Explore the botanical gardens, or closer to UC the Mona Vale gardens, perhaps even visit the art gallery or museum

3. Exercise and eat well – try to keep your exercise routine and eat good nourishing food. Baking is a relaxing activity for many, so it might be a good time to bake up a storm – share with friends, and freeze for term time treats.

If you haven’t got an exercise routine, now is a great time to start!

Closed walkway around Ernest Rutherford

The walkway between the Ernest Rutherford building and the new Beatrice Tinsley building will be closed from 24 August to 8 September.

You will still be able to walk through Ernest Rutherford building and across the bridge to the Engineering Core. The closure is to allow for asphalt work to take place. Please take care in the area during this time, follow any directional signage and stay outside the fenced off area.
