Orientation February 2019

Nau mai, Haere mai and welcome new students to MIT!

We are excited you are joining us. Orientation is an awesome event designed to give you the best possible start and welcome to MIT.

The day begins with a formal Powhiri and campus welcome followed by campus activities, programme sessions and an exciting lunch time festival. Including live entertainment, interactive information stalls, prizes and giveaways and of course lunch.

It is also a great opportunity for you to meet key staff, learn about the different services you can access for help and support during the year, sort out any final enrolment issues and make new friends.

Each student will receive a FREE orientation pack following the Powhiri and campus welcome – be there to collect your pack. There is also a chance to win 1 of 3 Samsung Tablets and a few more cool prizes.

Join us. We look forward to seeing you there.
