“Good morning, welcome to Griffith University, how can I help you?”
You will hear it all the time when you come to GI Mates during Orientation time in Griffith University. There is a group call “GI Mates“, which Making Arrival and Transition Easy for Students. This excellent team has work in university for around 6 years, and it gets more and more reputations.
It is my honor to be one of this excellent team. We help all new international student during the first week of orientation, give campus tour, helping them enrolling into courses, give panels, and What’s more? Welcome all the new students! Having been working with this team for about 1 year. New students always say “Jack, GI Mates has done so good jobs, I cannot imagine without you guys help, what could be during my orientation, and I feel so welcome when I first time come to this university.”
I like being GI Mates, trying my best to help students. Personally, I think the best part of the program is senior students use their own experiences to help new students, and it always works.
Moreover, in this big team, we are like a “family”, we help each other, we support each other when we are working, and we do have fun time ourselves. We have picnic, have BBQ…
Here is a picture slideshow video made by myself to show why I love this team, and many people are keen to join this team.
