2022 Easter Party on Campus
To welcome our students back to campus, we invite you all to celebrate this year’s Eater on campus with us. It’s a great chance to get connected with your new friends and have fun at Kent. Come join us for prizes and quality time.
Silly hats are encouraged!
Time: Tuesday, 12.04.2022, 12:00 – 1:00PM
Location: Student Breakout Room (Both Sydney and Melbourne campuses)
Mindful Relaxation & Selfcare workshop
Studying can be stressful and draining both emotionally and physically. Finding a balance between academic, professional and personal lives can be difficult and tricky. But struggling does not make you weak! It makes you HUMAN! If you feel like you are splitting yourself trying to make sure you get everything done and nothing falls through the cracks, you are not alone! The Mindful Relaxation workshop will help you leave exam stress behind, while allowing you to gently bring yourself back into the present moment.
Join Kent Counsellors on Fridays (This workshop is worth 10 LEAD points)

(starting 18 Feb) in Reflection Room on Level 1
Melbourne Campus with Dimi
Fortnightly 12:00-1:00PM on campus
Self-care especially becomes important in trying and stressful time. Do not be afraid to prioritise your needs. Ask for help as it is courageous to admit that you need it. Self-care is NOT selfish, it is NECESSARY.
