Q: What O-Week events did you go to?
A: I got a super pass so I went to almost everything. I
was at the toga party, the comedy show and Macklemore. I

ticket and all the events looked pretty exciting. I will also
be going to the Highlanders v Chiefs game [last night].
Q: What was the highlight of the week?
A: The Macklemore gig on Thursday night was awesome - it
was probably my highlight so far. I am a fan of Macklemore so
it was really good to see him. He was awesome live and it was
great atmosphere at Forsyth Barr Stadium.
Q: Has the week served as a good introduction to life in

Q: Do you think the week has been well organised?
A: Yes, I think the week has been well organised. They
have all been really good activities.
