Each year, the USU hosts O-Week at the beginning of Semester One attracting more than 15,000 students, and Re-O Day in Semester Two. These pivotal events represent students’ transition to independence and University life. These are a great avenue to capture the attention of tens of thousands of students, in terms of decisions made for the remainder of their degrees.
O-Week is the largest tertiary orientation of its kind in the southern hemisphere. O-Week is when the campus explodes into life with the excitement and energy of students preparing for the coming year.
