Education students take part in a range of O-week events

School of Education and Professional Studies Orientation Week Sessions

Griffith University Gold Coast, Logan and Mt Gravatt campuses are full of activity this week as commencing Education students take part in a range of Orientation Week events.

Orientation or ‘O-week’ is the time for first year students to explore their campus, make new friends, work with their mentors and meet some of the lecturers and tutors who will be teaching them throughout their degree.

Hundreds of prospective undergraduate and postgraduate students are discovering everything they needed to know about studying at Griffith.

Dr Kevin Larkin, First Year Co-ordinator of the Bachelor of Primary Education Degree, conducted Orientation sessions at each of the three campuses and had this to say “It is an exciting time for new students in the Primary education degree as they embark on an important journey in their lives. Attendance at each of the orientation sessions was excellent and students responded positively to input from academic and general staff who will be working with them in First Semester. I am confident that the students will have a successful first year experience.”

Students appear to have enjoyed the various O week activities with one student overheard commenting that “A wide range of information has been packed into our O-week bags and the various information sessions throughout the week provided plenty of opportunities for us to interact with current staff and students.”
