Summer Activities, January 2022

19 November 2021

The Engagement and Success team will be running a series of social activities during the December and January summer break period. We are very excited to be able to return to campus and run activities during the break. There are so many on offer this December, from cherry picking trip to acrylic paint pouring workshop. 

If you are spending your summer break in Canberra -  whether you've just arrived in Canberra or if you're just spending some time in Canberra over the rbeak, we'd love to see you in some of our events. It's been a while since we've seen students in person so we are absolutely looking forward to have you. Drop by, come say hi and meet someone new if you are around.
