Toi Ohomai O-Week

Students region-wide will flock to campuses across the Bay from February 20th as classes return for 2017 and the annual Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology O-Week (orientation week) events kick off.  

The O-Week festivities are an opportunity for students to connect with local businesses and organisations and learn about their products and services in a market day atmosphere featuring giveaways, competitions and live bands.

Bay of Plenty Regional Council will be on site, spreading the word on Bayhopper (Tauranga) and City Ride (Rotorua) bus services and routes and sharing tips on how students can benefit from smartride cards, student discounts and live tracking of buses.  There’s also chocolate to give away and students can enter the draw to win one of two $100 Smartride cards in Tauranga or a $100 prezzy card in Rotorua.
