Melbourne University Orientation Camp (O'Camp)
O’Camp is a first year camp held on the weekend before O-Week and is the absolute best way to start your University life. Held at Licola Wilderness Village, it is open to first years from ANY course. Meet 300+ new first years and leaders from older year levels, swim in a river, party all night (and day) and make sure you jump into your Uni life surrounded by familiar faces! This is the largest first year camp The University of Melbourne has to offer and is definitely something you won’t want to miss; trust us, you’ll be jealous if you do!
Brand new to 2016 your Science Students’ Society presents our O-Week party. This is one of the best opportunities to party with new students and old students, make some new memories* and make some new friends*. A CANNOT MISS new event for new students and old students alike!
*memories of events, names and faces may vary for individuals.
O-Week Historical Tour of Local Establishments (Pub Crawl)
Only the finest of attire is allowed on this prestigious historic tour of the local establishments. Don your finest, hilarious and most ridiculous costume for the afternoon and night. This Tour is the perfect way to make new friends, catch up with old friends and check out the very fine public inns the Parkville area has to offer. A truly special event which should not be missed.
SSS Pub Night (feat. Regoonion)
An amazing night at a local pub in the Parkville area. Meet some awesome new people, share your funniest (or dirtiest, your choice really) O-Camp and O-Week stories or just kick back and relax, have a drink and make some new friends.
Take a break from all the treacherous Uni study and get squeaky clean on the d-floor or even jump in the spa! A costumed event is always a fun one, and this is definitely no exception! As quickly as your worries (and possibly items.. RIP glasses) will disappear among the foam, these tickets will not last so make sure you queue up and grab those tickets early to ensure you secure your spot.
Melbourne University Graduate's Ball
Hosted by your Science Students’ Society this elegant night is open to all 3rd year students and above, including Masters, Honours and Post-graduate students from any faculty. All academics and faculty members are also welcome.
Hop on the Victoria Star and set sail around the waters of Melbourne in costume (of course) with 350 others! Shake it up on the dance floor, grab some cheap drinks or just enjoy the beautiful Melbourne bay. What’s better than knowing the bouncer’s cannot throw you out of the venue? (literally…) A sell out event ever year, cruise is always a fantastic event, so make sure you get in quick to score yourself a ticket!
Arts vs Science Pub Night
The fight of the ages, Arts vs Science. Get your drink on at a local pub, choose a side (we won’t judge you, okay maybe a little if you choose Arts) and meet some great new people.
