Event description


UQU proudly presents...


UQ. You have waited for 5 years.

In O'Week 2019, finally the wait is over....

Announcing the return of the WORLD'S BIGGEST TOGA PARTY! This year taking place in the Great Court (named after Alexander the Great).

So, rest some laurels on your head and some bed sheets on your torso, and head on down to the St Lucia campus for a night of fun.

Grab your Hercules or your Aphrodite, and 'come, see, and conquer' the dance floor.

Remember, 'TOGA' is an anagram of GOAT, and this party promises to be the Greatest Of All Time.

Everyone is welcome! If you're not a UQ student and you'd like to attend, you can purchase a general admission ticket.
