New JCU Dentistry students enjoy OzTREKK Orientation
We know what it’s like to be overwhelmed with predeparture preparations, and we know what it’s like to be stressed after arriving in Australia.
Where am I? How will I know where to go? What am I doing here?!
No worries! We’ve got your back!
In order to help you get settled, we do our best to organise an “OzTREKK Orientation” at your Australian university, as they provide a great opportunity for you to meet fellow Canadians so you can establish a network of friends right away. It’s also a great way to meet upper-year Canadians who can show you the ropes so you know what to expect. When possible, we try to include as many upper-year students to attend the orientation and to share their stories.
This year, new James Cook University dental school students enjoyed the traditional OzTREKK Orientation lunch at Burger Urge, where they were able to meet and chat with their JCU Dentistry classmates. The weather was beautiful and typical for Cairns: downpour, sun, downpour, sun…. Even still, the new students had a great time!
OzTREKK sends out a huge thank you! to former OzTREKKer and now fourth-year JCU Dentistry student Hilary Bell for assisting us with the orientation and for helping new OzTREKK students feel at home in beautiful, balmy Cairns.
We really appreciate your help, Hilary!
