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.
- Change of plans and this event is now scheduled for 9 September, 1pm (Bentleys) and 5.30pm (Kirkwood). Today at 12pm is the Golden Key New Member Information Session. This FREE session will address questions about support, networks and scholarships that the group can provide for members. http://ucsa.org.nz/events/new-zealand-election-for-dummies-2/

This event will cover options for Pasifika postgraduate research and how this could affect Pasifika communities in NZ and overseas. http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/events/EventDisplay.aspx?ItemId=5046
