GCAP Update

Welcome to May (almost)! May is going to be a big month for GCAP. We’re got both important and exciting stuff happening.

First, our speaker series, GCAP Presents, is proud to welcome Li Cunxin on 14 May in the G40 Auditorium. Mr Cunxin is Queensland’s “Australian of the Year” for 2014. He defected from China to the United States and eventually moved to Australia. He is the author of the best-selling book Mao’s Last Dancer. Mr Cunxin will tell his story and inspire you to work hard in order to achieve your goals. Pick up your FREE ticket at the Guild Office.

On May 30, GCAP will be hosting our Annual General Meeting. This is a very important event for us because GCAP is looking to adopt its inaugural constitution as well as hosting elections to see who will sit on the committee going forward. Please mark this date in your calendar. We’ll be releasing a formal notice soon enough with all the details. Don’t worry, there will be food!  🙂

We also have a camping trip going on this weekend being hosted by the GUGC Outdoor Adventure Club. For only $20, you can’t go wrong! Click here for the details!

As always, there are opportunities to socialise and network with your colleagues on campus. This Friday (May 2nd) we are putting on Social Drinks in the UniBar from 4:30pm onwards. We’ll bring in some pizza as well to make sure you have a bite to eat. Also, next week will be the first GCAP Breakfast! On Wednesday May 7th from 7:30am to 9:30am in the UniBar there’s a free breakfast for GCAP Members. Start your day right!

Also, it’s getting to the crunchy end of the semester. Remember that we are offering our Shut Up and Write program to help you get through those assignments as well as an Assignment Help program. Check our Academic Services page for more information.

Finally, for those of you who are international students, I’d encourage you to fill out the survey sent by the University (http://www.griffith.edu.au/international/student-barometer-survey). Please let them know about your experience as an international student. If nothing else, at least tell them how great GCAP is! GCAP depends on funding from the University and if the more positive news they hear about GCAP, the better it is for GCAP and, most importantly, for YOU!

That’s it for now. Hope to see you all for some pizza and a drink on Friday!

GCAP President
