UC Pasifika Old Skool Dinner 2

UC Pasifika Old Skool Dinners are social evenings for our mature or adult Pasifika students, who might like to spend time with other adult students and staff.

The dinners are an opportunity for these students and staff to get together, unwind and escape the stress and pressure of exams, research and or writing.

Please note we have no strict definition of what makes a ‘mature’ or ‘adult’ student, so if this feels like it’s for you, come along!
