Today was the first day of FEIT’s Orientation Program for new students. As part of FEIT’s “Finding your FEIT” orientation program, UTS Robotics Society had various representatives at numerous events throughout today, to help out the faculty and to promote our club to all the new students. Here is a round up of the activities we participated in today.
UTS Beach Day
The first event of the day was the “UTS Beach Day,” an event where first years were taken for a nice relaxing walk from Coogee Beach to Bondi. This relaxing event helped the new students get to know each other and also expose them to senior FEIT students. UTS Robotics Society’s representatives for the event was our Treasurer, James and Quartermaster, Jake.
Our valiant executive members helped guide the new students through the long and winding path that links the two great beaches. On the way, they mingled with the students, getting to know them and informing them about the many opportunities on offer through FEIT and Robotics Society. The students were also taught by surf life savers about beach safety and how to spot a rip in the ocean (A rather dangerous phenomenon that occurs on Australia beaches, where swimmers can be suddenly washed away)
Our two exec members did our club proud. They helped ensure that we helped out the faculty when requested and helped to leave a great first impression of our club to all the first years they interacted with. We hope everyone that participated in the beach day had as much fun as we had and thank you to everyone that interacted with us throughout the event.
Finding Your FEIT stall and trivia night
Our next major event for the day was the “Finding your FEIT” stall and trivia night participation. The stall today was manned by our Event Manager, Ivan and Media Manager, Kwang along with some help from RoboSoc general member Kyle.
First of all, we apologise for the roughness of our stall today. We kind of, sort of, forgot to check the time and had to run around like headless chickens trying to get the stall furnished on time. Thankfully we made it just on time.
Despite this, we met tons of eager first year students who were all very enthusiastic about what the club did and what kind of activities we can offer them. Thank you to everyone that dropped by our stall to ask questions and look around at some of the stuff we had on display.
We will have more information about our club and the activities we have planned for our new members in the immediate future. In the meantime, you can keep up with up to date information about the club by putting your name down on our O’Day registration form here (Or by clicking on the link above on our menu) and by following our Facebook Page.
We also have our vice president, Dennis, dropping by during Trivia to give a quick presentation on UTS Robotics Society and will be showing off one of the prizes for the night, our X4 Quadcopter which we donated to the faculty to hand out as a prize.
