USQ’s newest students commenced university life today as Semester 2 Orientation Week got underway.

Chloe Leong and Alex Tindall joined hundreds of other new students at USQ Toowoomba where they were given the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the University’s courses, services and facilities.

Mr Tindall, who is enrolled in a Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Information Technology, is eager for the start of classes next week.

“I am looking forward to the major subjects – getting to the meat of the course and challenging myself,” Mr Tindall said.

“O-Week has been really valuable. I also attended Make It Happen! last week, which allowed me to connect with other mature-age students.

“Even though I am starting mid-year, it has been easy to meet academic staff and make new friends.”

Bachelor of Business (Human Resource Management) student, Ms Leong, has also enjoyed her O-Week experience.

“I have met a lot of new people today,” she said.

“I look forward to making new friends, but I’m also looking forward to studying and doing well in my degree.”

Ms Leong and Mr Rindall will join in other Orientation activities to be held this week, including academic skills workshops, introductions to support teams, and information events on student services (such as extra-curricular activities).

They are among 30,000 other USQ students enrolled for Semester 2, who are aiming to join the almost 100,000 USQ graduates over our 50 year history.
