GSA O-Week 2023

Every semester, GSA welcomes all new and returning graduate students with a series of orientation events and fun activities. This semester, GSA delivered 14 orientation events which spanned over 2 weeks where we fed, entertained and met hundreds of our graduate students! This semesters’ events included therapy dogs, speed-friending, craft class, Grad Groups Expo, petting zoos, and more! Not to mention all of the delicious food we ate such as fish and chips, bao buns, waffles, tacos, baked potatoes and much more. Our events are completely FREE to all enrolled graduate students at the University of Melbourne

It’s a chance to meet some new friends, get involved in activities, meet the GSA Staff and the Board and Representative Council members that advocate for you and issues affecting students at the University.

If you missed out on the fun this time, there will always be next semester to look forward to. In the meantime, GSA will be running our regular events during the semester including art classes, yoga, Pilates and meditation.
