CQUni campuses across Australia hosted Orientation events last week creating excitement among our first-year students. Each campus welcomed new and returning students and provided a taste of university life.
Attendees had the opportunity to get to know our student services, campus life committees, academic staff and other students at information sessions, market stalls and social events.
We captured all the fun that happened across the nation and wanted to share it with you! Keep reading to view the highlights of orientation and to see if you and your mates were snapped!
