O Week: Get involved!

Orientation Week, or ‘O Week’ as most people would know it, begins next Monday 22 February. For some students, this is their first chance to explore campus life and the diverse range of opportunities that contribute to the Macquarie student experience.

To help welcome our students into the Macquarie community, we are asking staff to get involved and attend events as Macquarie ambassadors. See the staff events page to register your interest for individual events, and when you attend each event, don’t forget to identify yourself to the Events team as a staff member.

If you don’t wish to attend specific events, it’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with what’s on, be a friendly face around campus or just see what O Week is all about. Highlights for the week include:
