Clubs Officer

And there goes the first week of Trimester Two. We certainly had an awesome time going from Kelburn, Pipitea, Karori and Te Aro with our clubs, give-aways and our BBQs!

It was great getting to all the campuses and seeing so many people sign up to new clubs. The Re-Orientation Comedy Show was hilarious and the Black Seeds were as great as ever, what a night!

Environmental Week

This week is Environmental Week! Environmental Officer, Haley Mortimer, has been busy over the holidays organising all sorts of fun things. The week is kicking off with Meat Free Monday with Kishna Food. Tuesday we have a lecture and a workshop in the Clubs HQ, in the SUB. A debate between the political youth wings on campus is happening the Clubs HQ on Wednesday pm on the topic of emission trading schemes. On Thursday, VUWSA is hosting the Hook Up with Environmental focussed clubs at The Hunter Lounge. And on Friday we have the very busy eco-warrior Gareth Hughes taking questions and talking in the Clubs HQ.

Email Hayley on if you have any questions.
Also running along side this is the free VUWSA Soup Kitchens visiting a campus near you during lunch time!
