Can you believe we’re nearly a quarter of the way through Trimester 2?!?

Re-OWeek this year made sure Trimester Two started off with a bang (before that there was a slow descent into assignments and late nights began…). Some of our Re-OWeek highlights from the VUWSA team include Drax Project, Yoko Zuna, Speed Dating, Quiz Night, and the Medicine Comedy Show at VK’s. 

Re-OWeek was only the beginning of what's started a jam-packed Trimester 2 though!

This year, in just over a week, we'll be launching out first ever ArtsWeek!!! Our campus oozes music, arts and culture; so we figured, why not dedicate a week to celebrating it all?

After the mid-trimester break, we'll be holding our annual Faculty Games!  Last year Commerce managed to take out the competition, but this year, it’s anyone’s game! There’ll be Turbo Touch, Netball, Football, food, prizes and an afternoon of good weather (fingers crossed), so make sure you keep an eye out for when registrations open soon!

We'll also have our AGM coming, Blues Awards, Gold and Supreme Clubs Awards, a Mayoral Debate, the Rant with Grant and more this trimester, but more on all those later! 

Until next time...
