Postgrad Informer

Welcome to 2017 and all that the Postgraduate Students’ Association has to offer! To those of you who are starting your journeys, good luck. To those partway through, strive on. To those almost finished — congratulations!

If you’re new to New Zealand or Wellington, this is unfortunately what we call summer. You can’t beat Wellington on a good day, but we don’t have very many of them. For those of you back at university after the summer holidays, we hope you’re well rested and ready for the new trimester.

We’re the organisation for our postgraduate students doing honours or above. Our key goal is to connect Victoria’s postgraduate community. We do this through representation, promoting excellence (we have a ton of opportunities throughout the year from the annual three minute thesis competition, to academic conference grants and research excellence awards), and creating a sense of community (come to our quiz nights and BBQs to see what it’s all about!). Check out Salient’s notices for upcoming events!

Don’t forget to sign up as a PGSA member and reap the benefits of free membership, including information on upcoming social and academic events, scholarships, and conferences. As a member, there are heaps of volunteering and representation opportunities on offer. These look great on your CV and can count towards points for VicPlus or VicInternational.

There is also the option of joining the executive. We’re a high energy group that want to do right by our   students. Come to the IGM, see what we’re all about, and, if you want, stand for election. Email our Executive Assistant Sue Kelly — sue.kelly@vuw.ac.nz — for more information.

That’s it from us. Peace out.

Coffee Thoughts

: - SPONSORED - According to the NZ History website, “Wellington’s café culture is today an integral part of its identity as a city.” It’s true, everyone in this city seems to love coffee and we have an ample amount of cafes to keep the love brewing. I have been aware of t
