Orientation Welcome Week Haere mai – welcome

It is a great pleasure to join with our academic, student support and service staff in welcoming all new students to the Campus, whether you are from Wellington, from other parts of New Zealand or from countries overseas.

You have each made a great decision to come to the Massey University, Wellington Campus to study and achieve a qualifi cation which will launch you on the career path of your choice.

Orientation is designed to welcome and prepare you for one of the most important experiences of your lives. Orientation week includes College, Campus and social activities to get you off to a good start for the academic year. It will enable you to recognise Student Services which can provide assistance to ease your way, and introduce you to activities which you can share with other students and help you to feel comfortable in your new environment.

This Orientation Welcome week booklet is the key to getting started on a programme to help you feel part of Massey University; a university which values academic excellence and cultural diversity, promotes social interaction and support and where you can achieve your academic goals.

There are always building developments occurring on this campus. We apologise for any inconvenience these cause but I know that you will share our enthusiasm for this important campus renewal.

Ongoing improvements to the campus buildings and facilities benefi t us all. For example Bennetts Bookshop has a selection of study related and recreational reading material, Tussock Bar and Café serves the best coffee around, you can join the Gym to stay (or get!) fi t.

We meet each academic year with enthusiasm, in anticipation of the energy, talents and diverse infl uences you each contribute to the campus, making it a richer place. Make the most of Orientation Welcome Week, attend a Study Smart programme and begin your university life with confi dence. We look forward to celebrating your Graduation with you and those important to you, when you achieve your academic goals.

Enjoy Orientation Welcome Week. Have a successful and satisfying year.

I look forward to meeting many of you during your time with us at Massey University – Wellington.

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Wellington welcomes new students to Massey University in the traditional Mäori ceremony of Pöwhiri andMihi.ii

Pöwhiri and i Mihi. ii ThePöwhiri unites both i Tangata Whenua (people of the place) withManuhiri (visitors) in an environment of friendship and peace.

TheManuhiriiarrive and wait at the entrance of the Marae. It is customary then for a woman of theTangata Whenua to call (Karanga) the Manuhiri to move ontoi the Marae. She may call “Piki mai, kake mai, haere mai”. Come onto the ii Marae, Welcome.

TheManuhiri walk on in a procession. The start ofi the Karanga indicates to the Manuhiri that they arei free to approach their hosts. The lamenting call of the Karanga clears a spiritual pathway betweenManuhiri,ii Tangata Whenua, and the ancestors of both visitors and hosts to meet and participate in the ceremony.

For Mäori, and College of Humanities and Social Sciences staff, this is a time to give thanks for the safe arrival of their visitors (our students) and to remember those who have passed on into the spiritual world yet still guide us.

The next phase of thePöwhiriiinvolves theMihiiand Whaikörero, formal greetings that are exchanged between hosts and visitors. The hosts consider each

Manuhiri as sacred, according them the rights that i their position demands. As a visitor, you are expected to act in a dignifi ed manner, for Mäori accept your physical presence as representing all your ancestors.

Each speech (Körero) is followed by a Waiata or song.

The custom of nose pressing is a traditional greeting of the Mäori people and is called theHongi. Through ii exchange of this physical greeting you are no longer considered Manuhirii but rather Tangata Whenua, one of the people of this place. During this traditional ceremony we respect and honour the cultures of all ourManuhiri.ii

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences disciplines are concerned with understanding “the human condition” including:

• the origins and character of our diverse cultures;

• the distinctive foundations of New Zealand society, art, literature, religion, and public policy;

• the organisation of our communities, their governance and development;

• the nature of civil society, democracy, and the interaction of production, exchange and environment and

• our changing place in the world.

The Humanities disciplines focus on the linguistic, intellectual and cultural processes by which human beings make their lives meaningful. The Social

(21)

COLLEGE OF HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES

Uni-guide Programme

At your College Welcome you will have the opportunity to team up with a Uni-guide and meet other undergraduates who may be studying the same papers or programmes.

A Uni-guide is a senior student who will be available to provide you with regular support, friendly advice and guidance through-out your fi rst semester at Massey Wellington Campus. They will take you on a tour of the campus and show you where your lecture rooms are located.

Your Uni-guide will also be able to explain how the University runs and answer any questions you may have about the services and facilities available on campus.

For more information check out the Wellington Uni-guide website http://uniguide-wg.massey.ac.nz or contact Christine McGonigal: [email protected] or phone 04 801 5799 extn 6386.
