CV Leaders Jumping

Embarking on your university journey is not just about academic pursuits, it’s also about embracing the vibrant experiences that uni has to offer. To make the most of your time at Curtin, we’ve curated a list of essential experiences you simply can’t miss before graduating!

Volunteer in the local community with CV!

Curtin Volunteers! Is a program on campus that provides volunteering and leadership opportunities to students looking to enhance their uni experience and help benefit the wider community. One of the largest community projects held by CV! is the John Curtin Weekend, where students get to explore one of the a regional or remote towns in greater Western Australia on a volunteering trip. If smaller ‘micro-volunteering’ is more to your style, CV! caters to that too, as well as opportunities in education, eco-volunteering, and on-campus openings.

Activities pop up regularly, so be sure to sign-up and keep an eye on the events list.

Gain recognition through Curtin Extra

Curtin Extra is a program that officially recognises students who have made significant contributions to extracurricular programs during their degree. This program encompasses the development of skills to complement academic achievement, facilitates expansion of your social and professional networks and helps you to make a positive impact on your community.

After completing the program, and if eligible, you can even receive an official Curtin Extra Certificate as part of your graduation documents, and a digital badge to share with your networks.

Practice your passions with clubs and societies

It’s no surprise that joining clubs and societies are on this list! It‘s one of the best ways to involve yourself on campus, and is a part of the university experience that makes the community vibrant and connected.

There are more than 100 student clubs to choose from, and joining a club is a great way to meet new people, get involved with fun events and grow your social and professional network.

Join a social sport

Based at Curtin Stadium, there are social sport clubs for any skill or fitness level. Campus sports are an awesome way to learn a new sport, make friends and maintain a healthy balance between study, exercise and social time!

Sports competitions are flexible, in that you can register as an individual player, sign-up a whole team, or find a team to join, so there are opportunities for everyone. 

If you can’t commit to a weekly game schedule you can hire a court or field, play some free tennis any Monday to Friday from 6am-5pm or participate in free student programs, including Inter-Faculty competitions, a Housing Cup for on-campus students and free-play times.

Opportunities like these are available year round, and there’s heaps of info online that display the range of activities and learning that can be accessed beyond the classroom.

Engaging in experiences outside of your academics allow you to thrive mentally, physically, socially and help you to create a balanced life and timetable, so what you waiting for? Get involved now!
