Campus Activities

The Activities Office works closely with The Student Guild and University Program Coordinators, as well as liaises with a range of other positions on and off campus, to hold non-academic events and activities for students and staff. The Activities Office helps the guild in the organisation of the annual student ball as well as other events on campus. They often provide live lunchtime music, sporting equipment in the central courtyard, and classes, which include Zumba and Circuit Training. Some annual events organised by the Activities Office include:

Student Engagement Record

We rely on the support of others and believe it’s important to acknowledge those who give up their time to help out with events and programs run on campus with our Student Engagement Record.

At the end of each year students from various courses are selected to receive the Engagement Award Medal and a written Certificate of Achievement. The selections are based on levels of engagement and recommendations from staff. A student engagement record is an ideal addition to your academic transcript when applying for a job or further study in the future.

Art and Writing competition

This competiton allows students to display their creative talents to the rest of the campus as well as prestigious judges from the South West Region and the Metropolitan areas. Entries open in September and the winners receive generous prizes at a presentation ceremony held suring the last week of Semester 2.

9x5" Art Auction

This is a successful annual art auction inspired by the 9x5 Impression Exhibition of 1889. This event involves the distribution of 9x5” boards – the size of cigar lids artists painted on in the traditional exhibition – to students, staff and regional artists. Once the artists have created something on or with their 9x5” boards, academic arts staff, the Activities Office and student volunteers manage an auction on the South West campus. Works are sold to the highest bidders with help from a professional and entertaining auctioneer. Bidders come from all around the region, excited to participate in the 9x5” Art Auction. Money profited at the auction is donated to charity.
