First in the Family Program, Social Event – May 16, 2013

The Faculty of Arts, First in the Family program held their first Social Event for 2013 at the Monash Club on May 16 with great success.

Outgoing Transition Coordinator Dr Clare Monagle welcomed the new recruits for 2013 and introduced the incoming Transition Coordination Mr Felix Nobis.  Mr Nobis will be taking over as Transition Coordinator as of July 1.

The function gave new members of the program a chance to meet and mingle with each other and members of last year’s cohort,  as well as faculty staff.    Students Mitchell McAlpine, Shaz Sturk and Stefani Janson from the 2012 First in the Family program all gave inspirational talks on their experience within the program and how it has helped them with their transition into university life.

The next social event scheduled for the program is a lunch to be held in July.
