lecture theatres. These classes are organised through each of the different faculties, and you will be informed prior to O’Week as to which ones you must attend. Lecturers and tutors will outline your course, the assessment guideline you will be faced with, and which books to buy. Prior to O’Week students should go through their course timetables. These will outline the time and location of those preliminary classes. Between their classes students should check out On Dit and other AUU publications to make sure they experience all of the activities on offer. Excitement fills the air during O’Week as new and old students gather on the Barr Smith lawns. Cheap lunch always draws crowds. People lie around listening to the live music, with the odd Popeye cruise in-between sets (unlimited alcohol for the duration of the cruise makes this more popular than it sounds). Other iconic entertainments include the ‘White Fear’, where students race to see who can drink four litres of milk first (the human stomach can hold two litres – you figure it out). March screams warm summer nights, full of fun and drinking festivities. O'Ball, the annual campus concert, will be held on Saturday March 20. This festival is a fantastic musical event comprising local acts and some of Australia’s best performers. The first announcement brings New South Wales’ Space Invadas, Cloud Control and Queensland’s Yves Klein Blue. Further acts announced include the Water Slides and Hot Little Hands. Accprdording to O'Ball director Jonathan Brown, “This is one event to definitely keep your ear out for as the continually evolving lineup of great music acts and local DJs continues to impress.” Medical students are known for their drinking, and ‘Skullduggery’ is their opening event for the year. Like any experienced host, they provide a great atmosphere, superb location and excellent drink specials every year. Once held in the University Cloisters, its pop-

ularity has forced it to move to HQ nightclub on West Terrace. These quarters accommodate the large rowdy crowds and the multiple bars cater for the university drinking spirit. Prepare for a big night of drinking and dancing with all of your friends and fellow university students. Tickets can be purchased during O’Week at the Medical Students stand, or online through www.Skullduggery.org. Orientation week is a long-standing university tradition. The information sessions are educational and important, whilst the entertainment and activities are varied enough to provide fun for all. Previous years have proven to be a huge success with students and lecturers coming along to experience the campus culture Adelaide is famous for.

Aló Presidente Welcome everyone to Adelaide Uni for 2010! For continuing students, this is another year and another step closer to finishing that degree you’ve been slaving away at (or not, as the case may be).
