Additional support available to you at Raymont.
New students are welcomed to Raymont Residential College through a formal orientation weekend designed to build new friendships, become familiar with the new surroundings and gain some practical tips to fast track integration into both college and their new university campus. Led by the Senior Residential Assistants, new students are provided a tour of their new campus via public transport and supported in gaining a Brisbane public transport card (Go Card), as well as their new university ID. A bush dance is held on the Saturday night to encourage new friendships prior to team activities on the Brisbane River (kayaking, mountain bike riding, abseiling) organised by the professional Riverlife crew on the Sunday morning. Time is also spent familiarising students with the college policies and processes.
Flourishing at University series
Recognising that moving to Brisbane to commence tertiary studies involves significant change, Raymont introduced a Flourishing at University series in 2017 to assist with this transition. This series includes a seminar on developing university level study skills, resilience and resume building. By the end of the series, new students have a better understanding of the study techniques required to succeed at university, stronger skills to overcome inevitable challenges and the ability to produce a resume that will assist with internships, work experience and part-time work.
