Hi, my name’s Tim and I’m one of the awesome Coordinators for Orientation 2023 on the Albury Wodonga Campus. I’m also the Vice-President of the local SRC in Albury, the AWSRC.
What do you mean by SRC? Isn’t that something from school?
Each campus has a Student Representative Committee (that’s what SRC stands for) made up of students who are studying at that campus. If you are a student studying online, don’t worry, there is also the OnlineSRC made up of students studying online. The role of the SRC is to:
- Organise events for students throughout the year
- Approve different events and support for you and your study
- Provide a student voice to the university to give them feedback on what the university can do to improve the lives of students.
Awesome, are they doing any events or any events for Orientation?

The AWSRC is helping to fund for our bowling neon night. On top of that, they they are running a Beach Party! Make sure you have your Hawaiian shirts and remember to slip slop slap and be at the Gums Bar on Friday at 8pm.
