Studholme College first-year resident Hadley Van Schaik (18) talks to reporter Vaughan Elder about what he enjoyed most about O-Week.

Q: What O-Week events did you go to?
I got a super pass so I went to almost everything. I was at the toga party, the comedy show and Macklemore. I thought I may as well go to everything seeing as I bought the 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?
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 Dunedin?
Yeah, definitely. You meet lots of new people and you walk around Dunedin and see lots of people that you know from other halls. It's a good way to meet new people.

Q: Are you ready to get into study?
It's going to be hard making the adjustment into study after this week, but it will probably be nice to have a wee rest and get into a routine again and have a few early nights.

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