Students enter new world of uni life

By Katie Weiss

Hundreds of students have prepared for their first year of university study by attending Orientation Week at Charles Darwin University’s Casuarina campus.

Student Recruitment and Events Manager Marissa Briston said O-Week helped students to become familiar with the campus and their course requirements, meet other students and discover the services available.

“O-Week is all about engaging new and returning students with activities that will help them settle into the first semester of their courses,” Ms Briston said. 

“It is a great introduction to university life for students.”

During the event, more than 40 government and non-government organisations showcased their products and services. Students also attended free group fitness classes at The Gym@CDU and learned about LinkedIn and other platforms at a new social media workshop.

CDU’s Alice Springs campus, Melbourne and Sydney centres also held Orientation activities during the week.
