In celebration of Diversity Fest, we are taking you on a journey of diversity at UC. This week we’re starting with a few facts about what makes up the UC community. Check out the video.
Diversity Fest 2019 runs until 11 October and there are heaps of events and activities happening on campus. See the full programme on the UCSA website>
This week Elric, UCSA’s Commerce Representative, takes a look around Haere-roa’s impressive bar Bentley’s Lounge.
This week, UCSA’s Education Representative Charlotte Merrall takes us for a look around Haere-roa, the new student building, to see how construction’s going. The project is incredibly close to the finishing line now. The UCSA Team move their office equipment into the building on 5th July, and they’ll be operating out of the space soon after. By the time students are back on campus, they’ll be able to pop over and check it all out.
For more information about Haere-roa, visit the UCSA’s website.
