With the 2017 enrolment process in full swing the transition to welcoming and supporting our new students is under way – which includes Orientation Day (O Day).
It’s worth popping O Day into your calendar on Friday 17 February 2017.
Each O Day since 2012 has given us a positive insight into our University’s progress since 2011, the difference our contributions to recruitment efforts have made, and why we’re here.
On a practical note, have a think about the extra number of students, parents, caregivers and whānau on campus. Planning ahead for parking helps too. We’ll stay in touch with you over the countdown period.
Don’t forget the huge difference a simple Kia ora, or Hi with a smile can make to a homesick student. You don’t need to have all the answers – just taking two minutes out of your day to bring a lost student to the information desk at Matariki could make all the difference in the world – tangata tū , tangata ora – be prepared to make a difference.
