About the program
Starting Uni can be daunting and there are a lot of things for new students to learn, like finding their way around, knowing where to get textbooks and understanding University systems.
We asked new students how we could better support them during their crucial first few weeks at Flinders and many told us they would find it helpful to be paired up with another student to help them settle in. In response to this, we developed the O’Guide Program.
O’Guides are current students who will act as a contact point for new students throughout the first few weeks of Semester. O’Guides are there to answer questions (or point students in the right direction) and help them get to know others.
Students starting at Flinders in Semester 2, 2020 will be buddied up with an O’Guide in groups with other new students, via Flinders Learning Online (FLO). Through FLO students will connect with their O’Guide and O’Guide group through discussion forums and weekly live video sessions.
