Albury-Wodonga / What to 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 Albury-Wodonga 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.

There’s also a showcase of all our student services on Monday 24 February. Visit the stalls on the ceremonial lawn to collect your Orientation Passport and a show bag too.

You’ll be welcomed by our acting Head of Campus, Sue Hodgkin, before heading off on a campus tour.

How to Uni 101

Orientation is your chance to ask questions about how things work at La Trobe. Take our student panel session for example: they’ll provide tips on how to be an independent learner and where to go if you need help.

There’s even a memory training session that’ll give you strategies for remembering important information at exam-time.

There’s campus tours, IT starter classes and sessions showing you how to use the all-important library.

Social opportunities

This is where the Wodonga Student Association comes in. The WSA looks after all things social on campus, and they’ve got lots in store for Orientation.

Monday 24 February: there’s lunch, music, social drinks and then trivia!

Tuesday: more lunch and live music, then a celebratory Tunes and Chill party from 5pm. Friends and family can attend this one too!
