Meeting other first year students
Are there any programs where I can meet other first year students?
The UniMentor program aims to assist new students in adjusting 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 to you, who can answer any questions you might have and help you settle in. The program also gives new students the chance to meet and interact 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 here.
The UWA Student Guild has over 140 clubs and societies, many of which will run welcome events for new students to meet each other and find out about the club. Many clubs also elect a ‘Fresher Representative’ in the first few weeks of Uni – a great way for first year students to get involved.
