We are excited to announce that the new virtual International Student Lounge was launched last week. We have already had four sessions, covering a range of topics.
The first session included general information about fees, financial assistance and the University’s response to COVID-19.
The second session was called Chat with us Online and was all about staying connected. It was an informal chat, where everyone brought along a cup of tea, or coffee and shared their experiences with the transition to online learning and other challenges that the current pandemic has brought us.
This was followed by Let’s Stay Connected – Regional Victoria campuses on the Lounge, where our students from the Bendigo, Shepparton, Albury/Wodonga and Mildura campuses shared their experiences with the International Student Services Co-ordinators on those campuses.
We also started our series of themed sessions, Live Better at Home – Stay Connected, with our health partner providing valuable information about healthy eating, fitness tips, and overall wellness, while staying home.
What a full first couple of weeks adjusting to student life online!
Next week, we bring you Your Career: Job Seeking During and Post the COVID-9 Crisis, with guests from the Careers Service and UniTemps. Express your interest through the Facebook event, to be updated with event details, and check back in the La Trobe University International Student Services page regularly, to join us at future virtual events in the Lounge.
