Thousands of students are expected to descend on USQ Toowoomba next week to familiarise themselves with the campus in a fun and engaging atmosphere.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Jan Thomas said O-Week was designed to help students settle into university life.

“During the week students will have the opportunity to meet staff and make new friends, explore the campus and learn more about their program,” she said.

“Whether students are enrolled on-campus or via USQ’s online programs, each one is provided with a range of services and support toolkits to ensure they experience all the positives of university life.

“O-Week has all the information needed for a successful start to university study, as well as a great opportunity to meet lots of new people and have some fun.

“I hope each student enjoys O-week and I wish them all the best in their studies in 2014.”
