Welcome to Unimates 2012! For new or prospective members, please take your time to explore our website/blog. All the links are at the top of the page. For our returning members, welcome back to Sydney! We hope you had a great summer break and are ready to face the challenges of Lord Assignments and Death Exams (sorry, private joke).
(Yes people, I copied and pasted the first paragraph from my previous message).
O-Week is back! It’s bigger and better! This year’s O-Week is the largest that the University of Sydney Union has organized, and the theme of O-Week is THE CIRCUS. There’ll be a Big Top, lots of tents, animal balloons and face painting. Besides all those, there will be 161 clubs and societies taking part in O-Week.
161 clubs and societies.
No joke. Unimates is one of the many 161. But don’t worry, you’ll be able to find us. How? By looking out for this intimitating poster:
Once you see this poster, you’re obligated to sign up with Unimates. No buts, no ifs. Just sign up. Also, seeing this poster in my message is considered as an obligation to sign up with Unimates. I’ll be seeing you at Stall 193.
During O-Week crazefest, on 2nd March (Friday), we’ll be having our traditional Welcome BBQ to kick off the semester (and the weekend). The Welcome BBQ is free for all Unimates members! If you’re not a Unimates member, you’re welcome to join us. Just sign up with us! Not expecting that, were you? But seriously, sign up with us. I mean, check out these bad boys:
Anyway, don’t forget to check out the O-Week website to discover all the awesome events that will take place during those 3 days of crazy madness.
It’s times like this when I love USyd.
All in all, Semester 1, 2012 is going to be be a kick-ass semester (and an exciting year in general) for Unimates. This semester, in Week 4, we have a major cruise party with five other societies. There’ll be free flow of alcohol. There’ll be sushi too, so I’ve heard. Sushi on a cruise ship. How fitting. Anyway, I can’t say too much for now, but do check back on this website for any updates (should be sometime next week).
We are also proud to announce that Unimates Coffee and Cakes sessions are now sponsored by Yuga Cafe and Gallery. Do expect lots of tasty cakes, teas and lamingtons this semester.
And if you ever get lost on the campus, you can download the UniMate app onto your iPhone. We’ve partnered with UniMate to make your university life much easier. Trust me, two and half years on campus and I still get lost sometimes. Just click on the UniMate icon on the left hand bar of the website to go to the iTunes store. This amazing app was developed by a fellow USyd student. I’m a Blackberry guy, but I’ve seen the app in action, and I must say, why is there no such app for Blackberries?
Anyway, I’ll see you at our O-Week stall from 29th Feb to 2nd March. And do go for our Welcome BBQ on 2nd March.

So see you soon!
For Fun, For Friendship, Forever
