Week 5: Getting involved

The aim of this week is to help students strengthen their connection with FedUni, and find a balance between their studies and extracurricular activities.  We encourage them to explore ways to be more involved with the University, on campus or off, such as joining a club, writing for the student mag or becoming a student rep on one of our many boards and committees.
