Student Beach Volleyball Competition, Semester 1, 2017

This semester’s Beach Volleyball competition was a blast.  The weather was beautiful even though storms were forecasted for later.  Lots of teams got dressed up in fancy dress and there were some really energetic games.  The Red Frogs came to help with the BBQ and served up beef burgers, veggie burgers and sausages.  What a great day.  The winning team was made up of some of our long term tenants; they have obviously had the most time practising 🙂

O week – students had a blast

We made it – we survived O week.  There was Marathon Monday, Traditional Toga Tuesday, Hawaiian & Foam Party Thursday and Sunday Session.  It was big, fun and  memory making.  We are just getting organised now for the Welcome BBQ this Thursday, 2nd March just in case you missed meeting any people last week.

Welcome Students of 2017

Christmas seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye and we are now prepping up for the new arrivals of 2017.  We’ve already got a competition going for the early arrivals to win two tickets to Australia Zoo – all they have to do is send a photo of what they like best about living at Varsity.  We’ve had lots of entries and will pick a winner next week.  The recurring theme seems to be the pool is the favourite place on the complex which is understandable in this heat!  The Welcome BBQ is  booked in for March 2nd and of course, O week will be happening from 20th-25th February.  We’ll add photos soon 🙂competition

Goodbye 2016 Students

Looking back over the photos from the year, it’s been a fun filled one.  Lots of events and competitions, sunshine, storms and a few tears but lots and lots of laughter.  We wish the students that are leaving the best of luck, keep safe and enjoy the Christmas break.

Students BeachVolleyball Competition, Sem 2, 2016

Another popular event took place this month at Varsity Apartments – Semester 2’s Beach Volleyball Competition.  The weather was superb and lots of teams battled it out for most of the day to claim the prizes and esteemed title of winners.  The Red Frogs came along and helped with the BBQ and the atmosphere was great.  Well done to the winners – you fought hard for itvolleyball.  Another match has been scheduled for October – just because we can 🙂

Students Welcome BBQ, Semester 2, 2016

After the first week of settling in at University, we thought it would be a good time to throw the Welcome BBQ.  This is an ideal opportunity for the students on the complex to meet some of the other students, grab some free food, meet the fantastic Red Frogs and listen to some music.  As ever, the BBQ was extremely popular and we hope that some new friends were made.  It all helps with the settling in at Varsity Apartments. P1020368

Toga Party Welcomes new students Semester 2, 2016

It’s always great to see the enthusiasm of the new students during O week here at Varsity Apartments.  It is even funnier to see them trying to make their first Toga outfit out of old sheets and safety pins.  We are half way through O week and Toga Tuesday was a huge success.  Looking forward to the rest of the week.  P1020304

Farewell Semester 1, 2016 Students

We would like to wish a fond farewell to all of the students leaving us this semester.  We have international students returning home, graduating students and students simply moving on to other places.  We would like to wish you all well and thank you for staying here at Varsity Apartments.  We hope you have enjoyed your time with us.  Don’t forget to drop back in and say hello some time – we love _MG_0073catching up on ex-tenants’ news.  And remember … if you have been good, you can always come back and stay if you are still studying!

Varsity Students keep the Trophy Sem 1, 2016

Teams had been practising for weeks, getting ready for Semester 1’s Beach Volleyball Competition.  UniCentral sent 6 teams over to try and steal the cup from us … but NO CHANCE!.  Team Canada, from Varsity, thrashed them all.  It was a great day; the rain stayed away, the Red Frogs helped out with the BBQ and all of the students got behind their teams.  Well done Varsity – what a great job!

By Pierrick

The O Week BBQ was a great way to meet so many nice people – I have made friends for life

By Sophia

The beach volleyball competitions were the best fun ever. Great prizes. There is always something fun to do at Varsity.

By Minesh

Varsity is super close to the Uni so you can always get there really quickly. Having so many students around Varsity to study with – that helped me as an international student.

By Karl

I like Varsity so much I stayed for 2 years. The staff are really friendly and there are so many great facilities – the lap pool and gym were my favourite.

By Elisha

When I arrived at Varsity I didn’t know anyone at all. The other three people in my apartment were all first year students too and didn't know anyone either. We all helped each other and it didn’t take me long to feel at home at Varsity.

By Shantel

Varsity Rocks!

By Marius

I was really happy when I saw how close Varsity is to the Uni and the great bike tracks around the area. And the Kangaroos in the Uni grounds are amazing.

By Yuki

I won the Mac Book Air Pro prize at the start of my stay and it helped so much with my Uni studies. Thanks Varsity.
