Check in with your mates this week and get involved in these virtual LTSU events

Isolation can be rough. Maybe you’ve moved back in with your parents, or you’re living alone and missing your pals, or your surrounded by housemates but they are driving you up the wall. Things are different, that’s for sure.

But your mates are still your mates, so while we’re on vacation, take the opportunity to check in with them. Just reaching out to someone to let them know you are thinking of them can make the difference between a bleurgh day and a great one.

To help you reach out, the La Trobe Student Union (LTSU) have put together a banging list of activities for you to invite your friends along to, so we can celebrate all our friendships #togetherathome. We’ll also be sharing ideas for keeping in touch and letting your squad know that you care. Aww.

🎸 Tunes Tuesday 🎸
Join Loui Llusions at 2pm for an afternoon of chill vibes and awesome tunes as part of our ‘Acoustic Afternoons’ sessions.

🏆 Trivia Thursday 🏆
Challenge your friends to our first-ever live streamed trivia (and win prizes!) – starts at 7.00pm. Find all you need to know here.

🍿 Film Friday 🍿

👫 City Campus: Online Social 👫
A chance for City Campus students to say hi, hang out and keep in touch. Running from 5pm – 6pm every Thursday, you can check it out here.

😍 All Week 😍
Take part in the LTSU’s #RandomActsofFriendship competition. The LTSU have two $50 vouchers to give away to a pair of great mates.

Tell us about an awesome friend of yours who you think deserves to win a $50 voucher. Maybe they are the best housemate to be in lockdown with, or they are living alone and you miss their face, perhaps they went out of their way to help you move house, or their TikTok posts are truly giving you life right now. You could share a fun memory, a photo, video or just describe what it is that makes them a good pal.

This is your chance to celebrate your mate, let them know you’re thinking of them, AND to win a $50 voucher for them and yourself!

To enter, make a post in this event, tag your mate and tell us what makes them a great friend. You could also post on TikTok or Instagram (just tag @latrobestudentunion).

Prizes are available to La Trobe University students (from any campus) and winners will get to choose from a range of giftcards, including Coles, Woolworths, DoorDash, Deliveroo & UberEats.
