Orientation Day: University Of Notre Dame FREMANTLE
February 15th, 2023, was Orientation Day for the University of Notre Dame Australia, Fremantle campus. They had over 300 starting their Freshman year and we kicked it off with an action packed day full of a bunch of activities and events to welcome them to their new university campus for the next few years.
Great food, cool tunes pumping from the VW Bug Speakers, and entertainment as well as our creative art workshop. Students received their Notre dame T-shirt each and it was out job at Arts Inc., to talk and walk them through the tie-dye process. As students registered, we asked them to decide on their dyeing patterns from a plethora of samples, as we explained the Rainbow Swirl; the Rainbow Stripe, the Bullseye and the Starburst techniques of pinching, swirling, wrapping and binding their creations. After they added their coloured dyes into each section of their shirts they wrapped and bagged their T-shirts to take home, with drying and washing instructions to go. I can't wait to see all the colours around campus this year.
