OMG WEEK 25-29 MARCH 2019
Term 1 2019
After the start of term, once the Orientation buzz has settled and the reality of uni life sinks in, you might find yourself thinking, 'OMG it's week 3'. Your Student Representative Council (SRC) knows students start to feel the pressure around this time of term, and are proud to bring you OMG Week.
What is OMG Week?
OMG Week is a chance for you to come on campus, interact with other students, and meet with our student support services who are here to help you. It's also an opportunity to take a break, rest and recharge. Events will be held during Week 3 of term at a number of study locations.
We encourage all students to come along. There is no need to RSVP. If you can't make it to an event, but would like to know more about student support, check out the full list of support services online.
Remember we also have Student Mentors available to support you throughout the term. Our mentors can answer general questions in the open Q&A forum and also provide personalised support in our Mentor Groups. Join us or check out our webpage for more information at cqu.edu.au/studentmentor.
