Next week, from 27/2/13 to 2/3/13 is one of the most eventful weeks (or rather, 3 days) at the University of Sydney… O-Week! It’s the best time to explore every student club and society the University of Sydney Union (USU) has to offer. That includes SciSoc, who will have its very own stall! Like a large bulk of societies, you can find our stall on Eastern Avenue. If you need something a little more specific, it’s close to Carslaw and the end of the footbridge over City Rd. Here’s a map!
Before you visit our stall and O-Week, don’t forget to buy yourself an Access Card! Having this means you can join any society that you’ll see at O-Week. Some societies will let you join without one (SciSoc is one of them!), but most will not. Plus, you’ll get heaps of discounts around campus by having one! You can buy your Access Card online here.
Our stall is the one place to secure your place onto First Year Camp. Come in early with both your First Year Camp 2013 Registration Form and your Cataract Scout Park Liability Release Form completed, and your cash payment ready – $90 for people with Access cards and $100 for those who don’t. This is one of the many discounts that Access Card will give you!
Our stall is also the place to buy your official SciSoc 2013 T-Shirt! It will be available in five different colours (Green, Red, Burgundy, Dark Blue and Light Blue) and in four sizes (S, M, L, XL). It will cost $10 with Access and $15 for Non-Access. Remember, if you come to any of our fortnightly BBQs this year wearing this t-shirt, the food will be absolutely free!
Also, visitors to our stall will be given snazzy showbags! All bags have loads of goodies, including an issue of Popular Science or New Scientist, and also, the bumper edition of our own publication, the Aqua Regia, full of the creative and wacky pieces YOU can contribute!
That’s it for now. Come visit us for camp, t-shirts or even just to meet the executives and ask about our events or even how you can get more involved with SciSoc! We hope to see you there!
