O week – MAINZ Auckland
Welcome to the MAINZ 2017 Academic Year!
We kick off the year with great orientation activities giving you opportunities to meet with others and give you a taste of the types of things you can achieve through studying at MAINZ – starting each morning with bands out of the front of Victoria Street to welcome you in, BBQ’s every lunch time, and regular gigs from students and staff playing at various times.
Orientation is important – for all students.
It is more than just fun activities – it allows you to meet the staff, meet other students, think about your future, and find out what you can do to make the most of being a MAINZ student. Orientation is about place, people and planning.
For those new to MAINZ, we will have a formal Mihi Whakatau on Tuesday, with plenty of time to practice waiata beforehand (we are a music school after all). Returning students are encouraged to be part of the MAINZ welcoming party.
Keep an eye out for the daily activities, and I wish you all the best for your studies at MAINZ.

MAINZ General Manager (Acting)
