SEMESTER ONE 2020 EVENTS
Notice: All future events for Semester One have been cancelled in line with University and Government policy. As such, trivia, critical dialogues, winter social, and all our other events have been put on hold. We are endeavouring to offer as much online support as possible for our members during this difficult time. We hope to resume our programs and events in Semester Two. We hope everyone stays safe and healthy.
