New students are welcomed to Massey's Albany campus

New students hit the ground running

Orientation is up and running across Massey University’s three campuses. Vice-Chancellor Steve Maharey welcomed hundreds of new students to the Albany campus yesterday, telling them enrolling at Massey was their opportunity to get stuck in and make a difference in the world.

Albany campus registrar Andrea Davies says orientation is a fantastic opportunity for students to meet new people and get involved in clubs on campus, as they adapt to a new learning environment.

The orientation programme kicks off in Manawatū and Wellington today. All campuses will be offering a series of seminars on essential academic and career-related skills, college welcomes, tours, and introductions to the various services and clubs at Massey.

Assistant Vice-Chancellor (Operations) and University Registrar Stuart Morriss says the programme provides opportunities for student to connect and make the most of their time at university. “Our aim is to assist new students to hit the ground running and to have as much useful information as possible to ensure they can focus on studies from the beginning.”

Students at the Manawatū campus will be officially welcomed by Mr Maharey at an afternoon tea today, with more than 900 people expected to attend including Palmerston North Mayor Jono Naylor, Massey academics, students and parents.

Wellington-based students will attend a campus pōwhiri at the Museum Building at 1.30 pm. Distance learning students can also attend orientation events at their closest campus on February 23 or online.
