Clubs Day 19-20 Feb

Want to meet people? Get involved? 

One of the best ways to do that is to join a UCSA club or society.

Our clubs really know how to put on a show, so be sure to come along to Clubs Day and check out what they’re peddling!

Clubs are the real social scene here at UC, and the summer Clubs Day is a bustle of energy you won’t want to miss out on.

Here’s a sneak preview of your choices>

Clubs Day is a chance for you to figure out what clubs you want to be a part of and for clubs to recruit new members, creating connections and engagement within the student culture.

Most are free and if not, they’re usually cheap as chips (if English is your second language, this is one way Kiwis refer to a bargain)!

  • When: Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 February from 10am
  • Where: Ilam, Central Campus

Weather forecast changes dates for Clubs Day

Due to the incoming cyclone and the resulting weather forecast UCSA have made the decision to move Clubs Days to Thursday and Friday this week.

One of the best ways to get involved is to join a UCSA club or society. Twice a year, clubs show off what they’ve got, and it’s this week on now on Thursday and Friday. This is NOT something you want to miss out on!
