The University of Wollongong (UOW) will welcome new students to its South Western Sydney campus today and tomorrow (February 21 and 22).

It’s Go Time, UOW’s reimagined student orientation event at 33 Moore Street, Liverpool promises to be an immersive experience, providing students with essential information, support services, and offer a host of exciting activities to kickstart their academic journey.

It’s Go Time is not just about the administrative aspects of enrolment and subject information; it’s a holistic approach to ensuring students have everything they need to thrive at university.

From academic guidance to mental health support, UOW says it has curated a comprehensive program that encompasses every aspect of student life.

UOW interim deputy vice-chancellor (academic and student life) Professor Eileen McLaughlin said It’s Go Time will provide students with a variety of tools to support their academic journey.

“It’s Go Time is an opportunity for students to explore all that UOW has to offer, both academically and socially,” Prof McLaughlin said.

“From academic support to fun-filled activities, It’s Go Time sets the tone for the rest of the academic year and helps students feel welcomed and integrated into the university community.

“The transition to university can be daunting, which is why we’ve put extra emphasis on providing the right support services and initiatives to help students navigate through their academic journey successfully.

“This year’s event is all about creating a vibrant and inclusive environment where students feel supported, connected, and ready to begin their academic journey.”

Nursing students are invited to attend on Wednesday, while business, law, computer science, information technology, social work and UOW College students should attend on Thursday.
