Since our establishment in 1873, UC has offered its students a unique and exciting student experience, you might say it’s the time of your life

This video, the fifth and final in the series, is a reflection on the last decade and a half of student life at UC.

If you think the year 2000 wasn’t that long ago, think again! Some of these photos will remind you of trends that you’ll be glad stayed in the past – long stripey socks and boardshorts anyone?

There’s also some awesome photos of big events that have happened more recently like Prince Harry’s visit, as well as some reminders of the SVA’s hard work after the quakes, and students who have featured in the news.

Introducing the Sustainability Office

ENGS4379_Mailchimp_BNR (2)Did you know that UC has a Sustainability Office? We (that is: Katie, Jane, Matt and myself, Puck) are an on-campus hub for individuals and groups who are interested in creating positive change and promote sustainable practices within the University of Canterbury and in the wider community.

We organise events (Ecoweek is coming up soon with lots of sustainability focused events), communicate pathways for change, and support a network of individuals and working groups across campus and in the wider community.

Our whole team’s pretty passionate about sustainability. Katie coordinates the big sustainability projects throughout UC, Jane looks after the Community Gardens at UC (with a group of students!), Matt is forever finding more and better ways to look after cyclists and handle waste (think worms and composting!), and I look after the communication side of things.
Curious about what we have gotten up to lately? Have a look at this wee video! Wanna get in touch or stay up to date? You can find us on Facebook or on our website – you can also sign up to our newsletter through our Facebook page (just click the sign up button).

Congrats on your gold Angie Petty!

Wow! Massive congratulations to UC student Angie Petty who won gold in the 800m sprint final at the World University Games in Gwangju, South Korea on Friday.

She’s outdone herself – Angie finished fourth in the 800m and 1500m at the last Games held in Kazan, Russia in 2013. For more info on the games see the UC news site.

This is incredible news and we’re so proud! Watch Angie’s winning race here.
