Meeting other first year students
Are there any programs where I can meet other first year students?
The UniMentor program helps new students adjust to university life by providing them with the opportunity to be matched with mentors in the second year of their degree or above, studying the same or a similar course, who can answer any questions new students might have and help them settle in. The program also gives new students the chance to meet and interact with other first year students.
Your mentor will be assigned a small group of new students from the same study area, so getting to know your mentee group is great way to start building your networks at UWA. Through the program you will also have the opportunity to attend a variety of social and networking events and activities where you will be introduced to more new and existing UWA students, outside of your mentee group. You can sign up for a UniMentor.
The UWA Student Guild has over 150 clubs and societies, many of which run welcome events for new students to meet each other and find out about the club during O-week and across semester. Many clubs also elect a ‘Fresher Representative’ in the first few weeks of Uni – a great way for first year students to get involved.
