The 2019 university year is set to start off with a bang across UTAS campuses, as the Tasmania University Union (TUU) Welcome Week kicks off tomorrow.
From free breakfasts to quiz nights and market days, there is something for new and returning students alike across each of the university’s campuses.
This year’s theme is ‘Uniquely Tasmanian’, with the week running from Monday February 25 to Friday March 1.
In Hobart, the week will conclude with a Seth Sentry concert at the Uni Bar in Sandy Bay. In the north, a party will be held at the Seafarers Uni Bar at the Newnham campus on Friday.
The Togatus and TUU Uni Guide has also arrived, bringing you all the important information needed to start the year off the right way. The guide can be found online here or at a UTAS campus near you soon.
The TUU is also running an Instagram competition, with students encouraged to upload photos of the week to Instagram using #yourtuu. Beats headphones and a Macbook Air are up for grabs.
With the start of the new university year, the TUU has launched a new campaign, promoting a safe, fair and well university community.
The ‘Find the Right Blend’ campaign is focused on creating “sustainable cultural change” across UTAS campuses, aiming to combat instances of sexual assault as well as to encourage students to seek support if they need it.
TUU State President, Sharifah Syed-Rohan said she hoped the campaign allows for students of all backgrounds and areas of the university to be involved.
We hope to provide students with preventative measures before they reach a stage of crisis,” she said.
