It has been fantastic to settle into my role as your City West Representative. So much has already been happening. From Orientation to attending formal inquiries, I’m working hard to make 2017 a great year for City West. Continue reading
My names Izik, and I’m your Mawson Lakes Representative for 2017! I’d like to thank everyone for their support and for electing me for a second term. I’m really looking forward to continuing a lot of the work I started last year.
February has been very exciting, while everyone has been getting prepared for O’Week and seeing the new students in. It was great to meet all the new students, promote our new diary and services, and chat to them about what they’d like to see in 2017. It was fantastic to see all the new volunteers getting involved throughout the week as well. February was also spent meeting with Board members and establishing their KPIs for the year.
Ok so what you will discover pretty quickly is I like COFFEE!!!, one thing I know for sure is , I will need a lot more by the end of this year.
It’s been awesome to connect with so many new students, some a bit dazed, some excited and others just trying to process all the info. One thing for sure is they all seem fired up for what’s ahead, which is great to see. Well here’s my report for Feb, see you next month.
How good was O-Week? All of the USASA staff, volunteers, and student representatives did a fantastic job, and it was a great opportunity to meet so many of you! The 2017 diaries we were handing out all week are jam-packed with useful information which will help you throughout the year, so if you didn’t pick one up then I suggest you grab one from your USASA Campus Counter.
Oh my days, what a month! I can’t believe there are lot of things happening throughout the month of February. From meetings with the schools to preparation of my plans for international students. I also had done my media training masterclass with Kayla (President) & Louise (Postgraduate) on how do we present ourselves and response via radio and filming. Besides, I was really excited that I got to meet from UniSA Student Engagement Staff, Council of International Student of Australia (CISA) President and Welfare Officer, to Study Adelaide Student Supporter during International Student O-Week Day. I was grateful that I had the opportunity to meet them and discuss my future plans for UniSA International Students. Also, I’m excited to see all the new faces coming to UniSA Orientation.
It was an honoured to have an opportunity to give a Welcome Speech and give a presentation about USASA, along with my co-presenter Valerie Claire. Continue reading
Exciting and joyous, that’s how I want to tag the month of February this year after meeting all of you, the enthusiastic bunch of people during the O-week. Once again, welcome to all the new students to the University. All of us (both new and continuing students) would surely have an educative and fun experience at our second home from now on, the City West Campus.
The month of February:
The month of February was eventful and all the reps along with USASA staffs, were busy to make the O-week experience the best for all of you. For me and the new board, the month started with the board meeting where few new decisions were made. Continue reading
This month was very productive. We had our first board meeting-my first ever-where joined the finance committee, which Natansh nominated as our convener and our first meeting is coming up this Thursday 2nd of March.
What a month! We had our first board meeting for 2017, which led to lots of great discussion. I was elected by the board to be the Vice President of USASA for 2017, which is a great honour. I also joined the Governance and Women’s committees.
Postgraduate student survey
The biggest thing I’ve been working on this month is creating the Postgraduate Student Survey. If you’re a postgraduate student, I’d love for you to fill it out! It should take you 3-5 minutes and asks some questions about you, your studies, and what kind of events you’d like to attend.
I am able to put on one big event for the postgraduate students this year, and I’d like it to be the event of your choosing, so please take the time to do the survey!

I was really impressed with the energy of the new students as they strolled in for their official first day at Uni, sitting at the USASA table I knew this was their first encounter with the Student Association. As they looked at what was available to take for free, most picked up the condom packet from shine thinking it was a set of matches or a badge, they turned the packet to read the fine print only to have a great surprise, you know who you are.
