Meet your new friends

The BEL Orientation Festival is your first taste of campus life at UQ! Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by BEL Buddy student volunteers who'll match you with other students studying the same program as you. Your BEL Buddy student volunteer will help you break the ice with your new classmates and share their tips to settle you into university life. This meet and greet is run by experienced BEL students with great first-hand student knowledge, so feel free to ask them any questions you have before heading off to explore the campus.

Work with your new friends to solve riddles and find the hidden clues, while you make your way around the beautiful St Lucia campus. Along the way, you'll discover important information about your School, your Faculty and UQ. Complete the scavenger hunt and answer all the questions correctly for your chance to WIN some great prizes.
