Gympie students start uni with Orientation

23 Feb 2021

Orientation Day will be held at USC Gympie tomorrow to officially welcome new students to university life.

USC Pro Vice-Chancellor (Engagement) Professor Joanne Scott said Orientation was the perfect opportunity for students to meet their lecturers and tutors, receive help with timetables and subject selection and find out essential information about study programs.

“They can also attend a campus market filled with information stalls to learn about the services and support that USC offers, meet other first-year students and discover the sporting, social and cultural groups they can join,” she said.

Professor Scott said USC was offering both on-campus and online Orientation activities this year to help first-year students get their studies off to the best possible start, with classes beginning on Monday 1 March.

“It’s a mix of excitement and nervous anticipation for our commencing students – from our school leavers starting their tertiary education journeys to those venturing into new career directions,” she said.
