Semester 2 Grad Orientation Day

This year, GSA is turning 25. What better way to make friends than by coming to our 25th birthday party?

We’ve all heard of uni orientation, but this is different.

Firstly, you’re a grad student now โ€“ a busy and important adult. We know you’re flat-out.

Secondly, GSA has been running grad orientation events for 25 years. That’s right: it’s our 25th birthday! So you’re invited to our orientation “birthday” party.

Meet new friends fast at Speed Friending, sing for a drink at karaoke, play some arcade games, get a ridiculously cheap lunch, and enjoy some of our “turning 25” birthday cake.

And there’s more than just fun and games. Come learn how your Graduate Student Association is here for you โ€“ with facilities, study spaces, workshops, Grad Groups, and much more.ย If you need advice about the realities of grad student life, remember that we’re old enough to have a quarter-life crisis too.
