About this Event

MSA Camps and Events is a volunteer leadership program that provides Monash students with an opportunity to meet other students prior to their first day on campus. The events we run are fun, inexpensive and accessible, with the aim of providing safe spaces where students can meet other students, who they may never have bumped into otherwise.

We welcome all new Monash students (Domestic, International, Exchange students) from all Monash Campuses, as well as returning students who wish to take part.


Join us on MSA Chats: First Year Q&A Edition is where you can meet and hang out with new people and ask questions to current Monash students.

The aim of these chats sessions are to provide a safe environment for students to interact with each other and make new friends. The topics to talk about are infinite. Whether it be about sports, the news or even simply just spilling the tea about your favourite celebrity, we are all ears!!

All you need is a computer with a camera and audio abilities, Internet Access, Zoom software has been downloaded and an account has been made.

All of our facilitators have completed Mental Health First Aid and/or completed Changing Minds Online Training and Monash Stress Management Online Training.

Please Note:

The following rules are listed and must be compiled by all facilitators and student participants:

  • Be currently enrolled at Monash University, Clayton Campus.
  • Be a friendly person.
  • Have an understanding of the diversity of the student experience at Monash University.
  • Be encouraging and supportive of all students.
  • Be an eager participant.
  • Be respectful to all Monash students and staff members.
  • Participants will understand that they joined in for the full session.
  • There is an understanding that there is no obligation from participants and that silence is acceptable

The session is designed to be a group session, but if someone truly needs to talk privately, one of the facilitators may choose to use the zoom breakout room option, or alternatively a separate session at a later date. If the later is chosen, there may be 2 facilitators joining the session.
