Back to SESA (and Uni)

by Saren Currie


Semester 2 of 2015 will see a plethora of new events to keep you procrastinating all semester long.

In drinking it’s debatable, but with SESA events we’re definitely of the opinion that you should start early, which is why we’re holding the next event in the SESA Grad Series on the very first day of semester. At 6pm in 3.404 Dhanishh is presenting “The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Job Hunt” where he will share his experiences with applications, interviews and office politics.

Next up is the Women in Tech Carreers seminar. This event is for guys as well as girls and will be a great time to hear from people in industry including past SESA president Jess Hallett-Hook. This event is on 28 July from 4pm to 6pm in 3.407.

Also coming up before the end of August are Part IV Project and Hipster Web shadow classes, as well as the third event in the SESA Grad Series, the next SESA Movie Night and for the first time: the SESA Programming Competition. Further in the future we also have the SESA Game Jam, another Cardboard Night and our next LAN.

Finally we’d love for you to all like our new Facebook page and follow us on Twitter #SocialMediaSuckups.

Cheers, the SESA Exec Team

Beat the Rush, Sign Up Now

by Saren Currie

Hey everyone,

We’re ready to kick off semester one with a bang, and to be part of that you need to sign up. Admittedly, you can do it all online, so despite the title, there won’t be a rush to get in the door. Sign up here and then pay online or at one of our events in the first weeks of uni.

Speaking of events, there’s plenty to go around, first there’s the SESA Mixer at 5 P.M. Thursday the 5th of March in Engineering Cafetira (note: it is no longer in leech), and then we have our first bAGM at 6 P.M. Tuesday the 10th of March in Engineering room 404.503, both with pizza for all atendees and the ability to sign up if you don’t want to pay online. We’ve also got priority attendance at the Microsoft Student Accelerator Showcase which starts 6 P.M. sharp on Monday the 9th of March at the Auckland Town Hall (you need to register online for this one, so see our Facebook group for more details).

If this is all to much to keep track of we’ve got good news, you can now follow our new Google calendar to keep up to date.

See you soon, your exec team.

Excitement for 2015
