Semester 2 Orientation at MRS!

The Semester 2 Orientation period at MRS was a huge success with great participation from across the halls at the central events.

Some event highlights included:

  • Trivia & Pizza Night
  • Sports Tournament run by the Sport & Wellbeing Resident Advisors
  • Zone Bowling  & Laser Tag
  • A trip to the Queen Victoria Night Markets

The Trivia & Pizza night saw a fantastic turnout, with competitive spirit from halls showing up to win, and some fantastic sportsmanship shown by the residents. The central Sport & Wellbeing Committee put on an action filled day of Volleyball and Basketball where residents could compete in their hall teams. Congratulations to Normanby House for winning Volleyball, and South East Flats for slamming the overall points in Basketball.

Zone Bowling & Laser Tag night gave residents the opportunity to socially connect with other new residents from various halls, including our Peninsula residents. Finally, the trip to the Queen Victoria Winter Night Market gave residents the chance to catch public transport and wander around exploring various food vendors and live performances. This event saw over 200 residents attend which was our largest turnout for this event on record!

It has been fantastic to have residents returning from all over the world (including exchange), and being able to host them for in-person activities. The Orientation period gave both returning residents and new residents the opportunity to form new friendships, connect with their hall community and experience all that on-campus accommodation has to offer!
