O-day 2017!

Kick off the new semester by mingling with the Health Promotion Unit and our team of Peer Educators. Challenge yourself and your mates to pour a standard drink and discover just how good your skills really are. If you have an extra 5 mins, say hi to our BAIT vollies and find out if you really drink the same amount as your mates. We will have stacks of freebies and will be giving away standard drink cups! See you there.

Date: Friday 24 February

Time: 11am-3:30pm 

Five ways to well-being 

Make your mental health pledge!

The start of a new uni semester is the perfect time to make a commitment to look after your mental health and wellbeing. The Health Promotion Unit invites you to set a personal goal for yourself and stick it on our pledge line! You can make a pledge to improve your mental wellbeing in one of these 5 key ways: be active, connect, give, keep learning, take notice.

The HPU runs this activity at numerous events during the year. Keep an eye-out for the team clad in Fit for Study t-shirts.
