O-Week – international students and campus days
Last month it was O-Week at UniSA for students commencing their studies mid year. The festivities kicked off by welcoming new international students and finished with a taste of Adelaide at Haigh's chocolate factory and the Adelaide Central Markets. Some students even braved the cold and wet conditions at Mount Lofty, and met some fury friends at Clealand Wildlife Park and the Adelaide Zoo.
Ahead of Study Period 5 for 2016, students attended info sessions at their Program Day, and enjoyed free banh mi and cold rolls, a lunch-time expo, plus free snacks and entertainment.
