Mildura / 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 (and eat!)

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

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 get you on a campus tour and joining in ice breaker activities.

Your Head of Campus, Dr Deb Neal, 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:

  • the overview of Student Learning support services
  • IT Start Classes for an introduction to online learning systems at La Trobe
  • Returning to Study session for those coming back to school or Uni after a break
  • Library Start Class to help you navigate our awesome physical and online collections

Social opportunities

Meet your Mildura Students’ Association during Orientation. They’re your sure-fire provider of social events (and free food!) at University.

Keep an eye on their Facebook page to see what they’ll be up to during Orientation and Semester One.
