Clubs and Societies

Joining a club or society or other group is a great way to make new friends and get involved while you are studying at UON - work life balance is important for your success as a student.

If you're really keen, you can be involved in the Executive of your club or society or volunteer to assist with the organisation or running of events.  This kind of volunteering experience give you great leadership, governance and management skills and they look great on your resume too.  Remember, extra-curricular activities can give you the edge when you apply for jobs – employers value volunteering both for the skills it gives you and what it says about you as a person.  Check with the Careers Service to make sure you are taking advantage of your clubs and societies related work.

Over 150 clubs, societies and other groups are available at UON. There's something for everyone including sporting, social, cultural and faith based groups.  Each group holds a range of events across the academic year and new members are always welcome.

Enter a discussion with fellow students and you will soon discover there are many Christians on the Ourimbah Campus. Ourimbah Christian Students is a student group that aims to connect Christian students with each other and equip, support and encourage all Christians on campus. Additionally OCS recognises that all students are formulating life plans and goals – investigating what matters and what doesn't matter, developing skills to achieve these goals and looking to meet friends who will partner them on the journey.

Nurses 4 Nurses
Nurses 4 Nurses is a social group for nursing students. This group aims to help students, help each other with studying and social events. We also want to get involved in charity work with the idea of the group to start making a difference as a nurse, before we even graduate. Membership is only $5 and includes exclusive invites to social events and free BBQs for members. All money raised goes back into the group to assist with events, charities and annual scholarships for members.
