Dear Victoria Students,

I hope you all enjoyed Re-Orientation and caught up with your friends. Thanks to all those who attended VUWSA Speed Dating, Poker Night Round 1, gigs, and the movie night.

Speed Dating take 2? I have got some people telling me to host another so if I get enough interested participants to email me in my contact email below I will endeavour to host another event.

Don’t forget that if you are feeling the winter pinch for whatever reason come see us at the VUWSA office. If you need a little help in the food supply Come visit VUWSA for a food bank parcel and free bread every Wednesday and Friday.

If you are looking for something new to do this trimester, why not join one of Rep Groups that are on campus? They put on regular events and meetings and there are groups for queer students, law, commerce, architecture and design, Pasifika, international, media, women and disabled. There are contact details and information on the VUWSA website.

Things to look out for:

VUWSA By-Election: Voting opens this Thursday and closes on the 5th August. Check out the manifestos of all the candidates in Salient.

Morning Glory with Alan: Friday’s at 11AM on VBC 88.3 FM. Tune in for more information about all the clubs on campus, and the latest in activities happening around town and campus.

VUWSA Poker Series: Thursday 6PM 29 July, Four Kings Bar. $10 buy-in. You can win your trimester worth of books (to the value of $500). Plus Prize packs and spot prizes. Email for more.

Dress Up Day: August 17 Mount Street Bar – Dress up as your favourite cartoon/person/school uniforms/anything you like. Ideas include Harry Potter (wizards), Twilight (Team Edward), Heroes (Iron Man), PIRATES or the guy from the tampon ad. At least 500 people need to attend to make it viable, as it’s always nice to know you’re not the only one who decided to dress up! Check out Facebook for more.

Check out the VUWSA website for more activities and events as they come up.
