USQ welcomes new students for orientation

The University of Southern Queensland welcomes thousands of new and returning students to Orientation Week 2019.

Orientation kicks off on Monday (February 18) with the University Welcome by Vice-Chancellor Professor Geraldine Mackenzie.

“Whether you are studying aviation or communication, astronomy or the economy, USQ orientation is where it all begins,” Professor Mackenzie said.

“During orientation students can find all the information needed to successfully navigate the first few weeks and settle in to studies.”

Throughout the week there will be a series of sessions designed to introduce new students to university study, including campus tours and academic breakout sessions.

There is also social activities such as night markets showcasing the talent of USQ students, a trivia night and an outdoor cinema movie screening.

In addition to on-campus activities in Toowoomba, Springfield and Ipswich, many of USQ’s commencing students will experience Orientation online thanks to a one-stop-shop website that prepares them for class, and introduces the support team and faculty.
