Orientation Week

Steven Roberts

Dear students,

Welcome to Semester 1, 2023 at the ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE).

This year, as announced by the University, we will complete a full transition to pre-pandemic modes of study. You can see the latest guidance on the University’s COVID policies, travel advice, and teaching and learning at ANU in 2023 here.

ANU and CBE will begin the semester with Orientation Week, also known as O-Week (13–17 February). There are many University, College and School-level events to choose from; I would encourage you to attend the discipline and major-specific sessions tailored to you – the full list of CBE events is below. Attending those sessions will get you on the right footing for the semester, and you will have a chance to ask relevant College staff any questions you may have.

To make the most of your time at CBE, do get into the habit of keeping an eye on your ANU email for our newsletters, academic and social-activity invites, and important coursework updates. Our website’s Events section is another excellent resource for staying informed, meeting new people, and enhancing your academic and career prospects. Also, please be aware of the support services available to you.

Best of luck with your studies and get in touch if you have any questions.

I look forward to welcoming you on our beautiful campus.
