Do any of these events ring a bell to you: Orientation Week, Open Day, Academic Advice Day, Destination Melbourne? Or how about the First Year at Melbourne Facebook page, or the First_year@UniMelb blog?
Well, these awesome things are brought to you by the Transition and Orientation team! And I don’t think they receive nearly enough credit for their work!
I was absolutely shattered to hear that Transition and Orientation will be no longer. As one of their gazillion volunteers, these guys are a solid team and they’re just amazing!
So this is a very, very big thank you to Kathryn Boin, Ron Baird and Simone Thorpe, and to all the other staff from T&O! O’week, open days and everything else aren’t going to be the same anymore without you three on board.
You guys are the definition of teamwork, effort, and hard work – and I am super inspired your work.
Good luck to whoever is taking on their events and program now, because T&O’s shoes are irreplaceable. Have fun living up to their reputation.
On behalf of all the students here at Melb, I wish you guys all the best!
