Students! Keep Monday and Tuesday free for Orientation

NEW students beginning semester two at the University of Southern Queensland's Springfield campus should keep Monday and Tuesday free for Orientation.

Starting in the USQ Springfield auditorium, day one will provide students will essential information about studying at university.

Events and student experience co-ordinator Sam Miles said the program would be tailored towards easing new students into university.

"Students will have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities from a free lunch to campus tours while also getting the chance to familiarise themselves with USQ and the ins and outs of university life," Mrs Miles said.

"The focus of Orientation is preparing commencing students for the coming year administratively, academically and socially prior to beginning their studies.

"These students will be given a detailed introduction to their faculty and studies, meet staff and fellow students and find out what to expect during their first year of studies at Springfield."

On Monday, July 8, the program begins at 9.15am and includes campus tours, library tours, a free sausage sizzle and music.

On Tuesday, the program kicks off at 9am with sessions on the culture of university, transitioning to tertiary studies, and an ICT Session to introduce students to online facilities offered at USQ Springfield.

There will also be a free morning tea and lunch and a "How to Use Your Library" session.

Following the two days, all students can continue with the academic workshops that run until Friday.

"This free program is recommended for all new students, but is of particular use to those who have not studied for a while or think university study may be a bit of a challenge," Mrs Miles said.

The International Student Orientation will be held on Friday, July 12, from 1.30pm.
