U-Week is seven whole days dedicated to free food, drinks and activities, so if studying isn’t your thing, be sure to check it out.
Not just for new students, U-Week keeps continuing students informed about UniSA’s diverse range of activities offered. U-Week team members Clair Alford and Felicity Dennis believe the week’s activities keep students involved in university life. “U-Week gives students a sneak peek into the fun and festive side of uni life. It’s an orientation week to help familiarise students with clubs and other services.”
The first semester’s theme is ‘Happiness is Dance Shaped’ in honour of the many social and sporting clubs at UniSA.
Clair and Felicity hope this year’s theme gives clubs a chance to show students that university has a buzzing social scene. “UniSA has some great cultural and dance clubs who in past years have not been showcased, and this study period we are giving them the opportunity to make themselves known to students.
We understand that studying at university can be stressful and by getting involved with clubs, students find a way to de-stress and relax.”
Students can enjoy demonstrations throughout the week from UniSA cheerleaders, Dance SA, and volleyball and judo clubs.
Businesses such as Fitness First and Nescafe will offer giveaways and promos galore, though if you still need convincing, there’s free food, soft drinks and cheap booze on offer as well.
But U-Week isn’t all dancing and free snags; it also provides information on student accommodation, printing and all those other niggling questions you may have.
U-Week starts 10am on Tuesday 28 February at Mawson Lakes and will visit other UniSA campuses during the week.
Dates are as follows:
Tuesday 28th February – Mawson Lakes
Wednesday 29th February- Magill
Thursday 1st March- City East
Friday 2nd March- City West
