What are some of the values of the Yellow Shirts program?
Yellow Shirts is one of those programs that you will look back on so fondly long after graduation. At its core, it's a program that aims to welcome first years to UNSW but what the shirts get out of it extends so much further than O-Week.
The program's genuine care for its students shines through in its focus on equity & diversity and personal development. There are so many opportunities to immerse yourself in different passions and interests throughout the summer together, and for me that came in the form of YS Band! Playing and performing music with my bandmates is definitely one of my most loved memories.
The best part of my experience had to be meeting people from all walks of life and getting to now call some of them my lifelong friends. I will forever be grateful for being able to navigate the highs and lows with such vibrant characters and getting to grow my confidence in ways that I never would have imagined.
I encourage anyone who's wanting to meet new people, volunteer and discover something new about themselves to apply!
