Held during Res Fest, 2019, the Amazing Race is an opportunity for new residents at Student Living to be introduced to key services and locations across Callaghan campus. The aim of this event is to ensure that residents are aware of key services across campus.  

The event will involve a number of key locations across Callaghan being delegated ‘stops’ where groups of residents, lead by Residential Mentors, will collect a letter at each stop, with all the letters forming a word that teams need to present at the finish line.  

The race starts at 11am from the Student Living Customer Service office and will finish at around midday at the Park on the Hill. NUSA will be providing a free BBQ and Zooper Doopers for all of you students in dire need of a sugar rush on a hot day!

The building will also be open so you can come in and check out what NUSA is all about!
