Go for gold!

The Winter Olympics start this week, the same as Orientation Week here at QUT. What a coincidence! Just like the Winter Olympians, to succeed at university you must prepare and work hard. QUT Library is offering several Library 101 workshops so you can prepare yourself for the upcoming semester. Practice your referencing, polish your searching skills and discover all of the services and resources available at QUT Library.

If you are aiming for a gold medal this semester, you can also have a look at study skills workshops and library tours. These will help you develop your study skills and, you guessed it, prepare yourself for getting the most out of your classes and assignments.

Preparing for university, and the Olympics, also means thinking about your health and wellbeing. QUT Library’s video streaming service, Kanopy, has over 300 videos related to sport and fitness. Plus you can watch Dr. Anna Baranowsky explain How to create a wellness mind map or find The Secret of Life Wellness.

You can also contact HiQ to get assistance as you (just like the Winter Olympians!) strive for gold this semester!

Law Faculty Wellness Event

Part of being a good student is knowing when to take some time out for yourself to reconnect and clear your mind. QUT Law Faculty are helping Justice and Law students to do just that on Thursday 21st April as part of their wellness activities and the ‘I belong in the LLB Program‘.

If you have some free time between 10:00am and 3:00pm, come to the Law Library, C Block, Gardens Point and take part in the festivities. There will be fairy floss, colouring in, 90’s nostalgia TV screenings, and alpacas (on the lumpy lawn near Subway, not in the library!). For more information check out the What’s Happening Guide (307.30KB, pdf) and plan your day accordingly.

Make sure to follow @qutlibrary and @qutlaw on Twitter for updates and pictures throughout the day.
