Welcome to the first week of lectures!

I’ve been to a lecture or two over the past three years I’ve been at Vic, so here are a few things I’ve learnt over my time:

  • Victoria is big. Like, really big, with lots of buildings. Even now, when I get asked where a building or a room is, I don’t know the answer. There is, however, a useful map you can use on Victoria’s website—it even tells you what those abbreviations mean! Type ‘map’ into the search box on the university’s homepage.
  • Places also get easier to find when you realise the first number of a room is the floor it’s on. KK203? Easy! Room 203, on level 2 of Kirk!
  • Not all PASS classes and tutorials are held on Campus. Some are held across the road in the ‘houses’ of Kelburn Parade and Fairlie Terrace (I told you, this place is big).
  • If you sit down in the wrong class, don’t feel bad for walking out. That being said, ask any second or third year and they’ll probably tell you at least one time they sat through an entire class for some subject they didn’t know, just so they wouldn’t have to do the walk of shame.

Also, non-stop studying can also get pretty boring. Take a break, and get involved in University life!  

This week is Clubs’ Week, so check out a selection of the 130+ clubs here at Victoria! You’ll see the stalls in the hub Tuesday to Thursday.

Go to gigs! This Friday night, VUWSA is hosting a show at San Fran, but there are shows happening all the time. Visit vuwsa.org.nz/events-calendar for more info.

Keep up to date with VUWSA online:

If you haven’t yet, come sign up for VUWSA at our stall this week. Plus, arrive there at 12.00pm for tacos!

Til next time,

Nathaniel

Ten things I wish my friends knew about being Māori

: 1). I wish my friends knew that when they ask me what “percentage” of Māori I am—half, quarter, or eighth—they make me feel like a human pie chart. I don’t know how people can ask this so nonchalantly, but they do. So I want to let you know: this is a very threatening
