This session is only for students transitioning from the Toi Ohomai Diploma in Environmental

designed to propel you into your 2020 University experience and give you the know-how to embark

The Waikato Students’ Union has been around for over 50 years,
working hard to ensure that students have a social safety net
through Student Support and Advocacy; that the Student
Experience is more than just studying, and that you have a
broad network of clubs, societies and rōpū to engage with.
Most importantly though, we work to make sure your Voice
is heard at the highest level.

                                                        about the WSU clubs is that they are a student
