Have you got some crazy nights and wild parties ahead? Well to make sure they don’t get too out of hand you can always register your party with Good One. Basically, Good One is a method of registering a private party with the police to ensure that everyone has a good night. Good One means that you as the host don’t have to worry that your night could take an uncontrollable turn for the worst. After you register online your local officer will most likely contact you and get a run down on your plans. During the party the police will be in the neighbourhood and only a call away if you need some help. Even if you have a b-e-a-utiful night and have no need for the cops backup, there was no harm in setting up a safety net!
Remember: “When parties go bad, it’s always worst for the hosts. Good One is all about helping you have a great party without things getting too hairy”.

“University is the best time of your life” so they say. It’s the golden years where we make memories that involve our best mates, old and new, discover ourselves, make mistakes and eventually learn from them.
With a university as big as UC, although it’s easy to meet people, keeping in touch is tough as we don’t always see the same face twice unless both parties make a conscious effort. Being a student at UC is about more than getting a degree, the latest campaign says “UC More, Feel More, Do More” and this is for good reason. Being a student here is genuinely your chance to have an all round unique experience.
With a varied and diverse range of social clubs and societies on campus, almost every individual’s needs and interests are catered to. Clubs and societies on campus are the ultimate way to make friends for a lifetime.
With over a 150 clubs ranging from sports to cultural, including academic and activist clubs, we really do have something for everybody. If someone’s still looking for something else, then they can always start their own club! All clubs and societies on campus are affiliated to the University of Canterbury Students’ Association which is the governing body, but each club functions on its own, with an exclusive executive panel.
As UC students we are strongly encouraged to make the most of our time, both academically and socially, and we’re provided the resources to do so. A piece of advice would be to put yourself out there. UC is a safe haven and a crucial part of our learning years and truly does offer so much more than a degree. So, go out there, get involved, meet new people, make new friends (stumble even) but don’t deny yourself the endless possibilities that the social aspect of UC has to offer through its clubs and societies.
