Shepparton / What you can expect at Orientation 2020

Are you excited?

Not long now until Semester One begins.

As always, the first date for your diary is Orientation – the time for information sessions, social events and must-do administrative tasks.

Come to Orientation and your transition to University will be made so much easier. Plus you’ll make some new friends and score some free food!

Below is an overview of what’s planned at your campus. For more details, to register for some events or to make a personalised Orientation schedule, go to our Orientation Planner.

Meet and greet

One of the best things about studying at La Trobe in Shepparton is how well everyone knows each other. So naturally there’s plenty of chances to get to meet the people you need to.

Course Essentials sessions are a vital item on the schedule: meet key teaching staff in your area and get to know some of your new classmates.

By then you’ll be familiar with lots of people – because we’ll have gotten you on a campus tour and joining in with ice breaker activities.

Your Head of Campus, Elizabeth Capp, will be there to officially welcome new students to 2020.

How to Uni 101

Orientation is your chance to ask questions about how things work at La Trobe. Some perfect opportunities to get answers include:

  • Campus tours to see all the sites important to you
  • IT Starter Classes for an introduction to online learning systems at La Trobe
  • Returning to Study sessions for those coming back to school or Uni after a break
  • Library Start Classes to help you navigate our awesome physical and online collections

Social opportunities

This is where the Shepparton Student Association comes in! The SSA is your sure-fire provider of on-campus social opportunities (and free food).

They’ll be hosting you at the GV Hotel during Orientation for their annual No Dumb Questions panel – a great chance to ask students and staff about University in a safe and supportive environment.

Grab a free meal, meet the SSA president and pick up your free t-shirt on the day too.
