The United States Studies Centre partnered with the University of Sydney Union to provide students with the ultimate Orientation Week (O-Week) experience!

Students were able to experience the magical wonderland that is the southern hemisphere’s largest O-Week. Here’s what happened:

  • Careers forum

Ever wanted to work for DFAT, the United Nations or an international think tank? We put together a diverse panel of researchers and policy experts from both nationally and internationally recognised institutions to answer the exact questions that students need to know in order to start their career in international relations. The president of the Sydney University United Nations Society moderated the panel discussion which was followed by audience Q&A. This is a must listen for students currently studying in areas related to international relations, policy, politics or government.

We also provided information at our partner society stalls: United States Studies Society, and the Sydney University United Nations Society (SUUNS).

Best of all was the American-themed circus on the opening day! Jumping castle, mechanical bull, circus food and performances! And our friends at Cow and Moon Ice Cream came down join in the festivities!
