Students return to week of revelry
A week of ‘Welcome Back Students’’ events are set to take over Massey and UCOL campuses in Palmerston North.
Both students’ associations have planned market day and music events, starting on Saturday morning with the Association of Students at UCOL Street Fair on the Princess St trades block car park.
‘‘It’s a huge thing to get student engagement and liven up the UCOL atmosphere for students,’’ said AS@U president Melissa Evans.
The traditional powhiri takes place on Monday, with an Amazing Race on Tuesday,
Wednesday market day in the Atrium with Club’s Day on Thursday.
At Massey, the Future Fest themed week-long party centred on Massey Concourse is under way on Monday with two days of miniature pool parties.
Massey University Students Association president Nikita Skipper said along with the Mega Market and op shop day on Wednesday, there’s a Fresh Music Lunchbox on Thursday featuring Auckland indie band The Beths, with Ben Hurley, Justine Smith and David Corroes fronting for the evening’s Comedy Gala.
Friday night is the Opportunity Shop Ball with live bands and DJs, and the traditional Saturday night Toga Party is followed on Sunday by the aptly named Come Down Picnic.
