How To Get Involved With Your Uni!
From the great sporting clubs and facilities to the publications and community projects there are so many ways to get involved in the Griffith University community!Take sports for example, you can play socially, at club level or even represent the University!
It allows you to meet people who obviously share similar interests, you’re keeping fit and healthy and all while being social and involved with the Griffith community.
Arts and culture more your thing?
There are many more ways to get involved in the Griffith community including learning languages and gaining valuable work experience through internships.
The most important thing is to try something new while you’re at university, get involved and meet like-minded people. You don’t know what opportunities may arise and who you might meet!
Social and support services
There are some very friendly and helpful support teams here to help you out in your first weeks and months at uni such as the OWLS (Orientation Week Leaders), Griffith Mates, Clubs and societies, and for the Gold Coast campus the GUGC Student Guild.
Work and training opportunities
The Careers and employment service has so much to offer, that I could write a post just about them, but for now I’ll just give you the quick low down and share a link or two.
There are so many undiscovered gems and resources on offer that if you don’t take advantage of them at least once you are really missing out!
The careers and employment service has seminars, appointments on campus where you can have a professional help you write your resume/cover letter and discuss career options, information on studying overseas, Griffith Enrich, the industry mentoring program where you can meet professions in your field and get a strong and helpful understanding of your career path after university, and even the career board where you can find jobs of all types from casual to full time.
Overall the Careers and employment service at Griffith helps students enhance their employability and opportunities, not only to get the most out of their time at university but have the best advantage in their career after.

The Griffith UNiversity libraries also provide and excellent range of free workshops, consultations and self-help resources to help you succeed at university and get a headstart: Workshops and training
