Can you believe that 2019 OWeek is done and dusted? With parties, movies, rides, escape rooms, bowling and so much more, it was an epic five days! So epic in fact we thought we’d recount the legendary events all over again.
We started OWeek with a bang! Market Days at Burwood and Waterfront filled these campuses to the brim, buzzing with club stalls, live performances, roaming entertainment, awesome giveaways, and free food. Hundreds of new DUSA members got their hands on our 2019 Membership Pack and got their first taste of Deakin. Then we took the night home with the Glow Party, the Welcome to Geelong Party and the O’Fest at Warrnambool, all of which were absolutely stellar!
The second day of OWeek showed no signs of slowing down as Burwood’s second Market Day delivered the goods, whilst Geelong’s Market Day shimmied its way from Waterfront to Waurn Ponds with celebratory ease. Luckily the momentum only quickened in the evening with the Jungle Party and Glitz N’ Glam Party! But dance moves weren’t the only thing that were on blazing fire on Tuesday night with high scores being smashed at the Kingpin Games and Arcade Wars.
On the third day of OWeek my DUSA gave to me, another Market Day for Burwood, whilst pumping the tunes with delicious free food at Beats and Eats for Warrnambool and Waterfront. In the evening we rounded it all off with a first-ever OWeek event, Luna Park, which had more thrilling rides than you could shake a stick at!
Thursday was a massive evening with the machine, the myth, the legend Bumblebee gracing the silver screen at Burwood’s Outdoor Movie Night, meanwhile Geelong and Warrnambool were channeling their inner Sherlock Holmes with the Mystery Bus Tour! They rocked the themes hard core, from 80’s to tradies, all the costumes were just as imaginative as the last.
Our final day of OWeek capped off an amazing week with our Fun Day Out at Burwood and the Lockology 101 for Warrnambool. Burwood students enjoyed free food, live performers and spinning wheel games, and our Warrnambool cohort were testing their intellects escaping from Lockology rooms and crushing a game of ten pin bowling.
Our 2019 OWeek was incredible, we had so much fun creating then hosting all of these events and we hope you had just as much fun attending them. We’re excited to see what the rest of the year holds, and with such an amazing start we’re confident it can only get better. Cheers to 2019!
