Highlights of Orientation

Orientation footage from a dozen campuses across four states created a real buzz on our socials last week. It was great to watch our support services, campus life teams, and academic staff spring into action as we welcomed students to the many information sessions, market stalls and social events happening at each location.

With so much great footage, we felt we had to recap some of the best content with you. Here are our highlights of Orientation…

Telling our Orientation story

Facebook, Instagram and Twitter helped us paint a picture for students who couldn’t make it to a campus and captured many key moments for our hundreds of event attendees.

A snapshot of our national footprint

Orientation is one of our biggest events each year and an opportunity to showcase many of the campuses across our national footprint. This year, events took place at twelve different campuses, across four states!

Student leaders took the stage

Student Mentors, Student Ambassadors and Student Representative Council members were available at each location to answer questions and guide new students. Check out our amazing student leaders answering questions on stage at Rockhampton…

Stars were born through local media coverage

Student stories were popular across local media for the week with WIN News capturing our Rockhampton and Bundaberg events, and CQUniNEWS profiling some of our new rising stars.

If you couldn’t make it to an Orientation event, don’t miss our upcoming OMG Week events hosted by the Student Representative Council. We are also holding catch up sessions for International students.

All new students are also encouraged to complete the Countdown to CQUni (Orientation Online) Moodle unit.

Orientation is a key event on the University’s academic calendar, providing new students with information and skills they need to succeed. Read more about Australia’s most widespread O Week at CQUniNEWS
