It's OzTREKK Orientation time!
This means it’s actually Tuesday in Oz, which means I have landed in lovely Melbourne!
It is, officially, time for the 2017 version of OzTREKK’s Orientation. For those of you haven’t been bombarded by the emails it’s, basically, the best time of the year. It’s the time when 300+ students arrive with their bellies filled with butterflies. We try to replace the butterflies with bacon and eggs.
John Graham and I will be “doing the tour”: starting in Melbourne, then Sydney, then Brissy, then Gold Coast, then Townsville, and then back to Sydney!
There is a full-on heat wave in Oz at the moment and my flip flops thongs are ready. I cannot wait. Like, at all.
For the last few years now I’ve been the lucky recipient (don’t know if I can really call it that) of this trip and it is so.much.fun. And, it’s a job, I hear. 🙂
By now all OzTREKK students should have received the invite with the details and should be mentally preparing to meet—or to see again—the rest of the students who have made the (giant) leap across the pond with them. If anyone needs any assistance, just fire me an email. I look forward to seeing you all very soon.
Hmmm… I wonder if they still have those sweet potato chips… she types, while hearing the noon-o’clock hunger grumble….
Why attend an OzTREKK Orientation?
You would be amazed at how many students arrive in Australia, move in to their accommodations, and rarely leave their rooms. Why? Because they don’t know anyone.
Well, don’t worry. As part of the OzTREKK Orientations, we host a welcome breakfast, lunch or dinner—a great way to meet other new Canadian students, so that you can establish a network and friends right away. It’s also a great way to meet upper-year Canadians who can show you the ropes and share their experiences with you so that you know what to expect.
We wish all OzTREKK students the very best!
