Pasifika Welcome Day!

Saturday 28 February, 11am-2pm, Central Lecture Theatres

To celebrate the start of a new  academic year, a Pasifika welcome is  held every year on Saturday at the end  of the first week of lectures, bringing  together all first-year and returning  Pacific students and their families. It  is a great opportunity for students  and family members to hear from key  University staff and meet members of  the wider Pacific community.
