ANNUAL FIRST YEAR CAMP
The ‘Annual First Year Camp’ is the ultimate bonding experience and introduction to the unique Deakin social culture. It is a weekend-long camp, organised by our Events Division, which sees 120 first-year students (of any course) enjoying a once in a lifetime event. Our First Year Camp is an exciting and fun opportunity for first-years to meet each other and bond through fun-filled events and activities of the jam-packed days. It is designed to immerse Deakin’s newest cohorts with as many chances as possible to create strong networks of friends both in and out of their degree, step out of their comfort zones and experience the fun and excitement of both DCS and Deakin!
DCS ANNUAL AFTER EXAMS PARTY (AXP)
The DCS ‘Annual After Exams Party’ is on every student’s calendar as the largest and best opportunity to celebrate their hardwork during the Trimester 1 Exam Period. It is a large-scale event, historically hosting over a thousand students. DCS enjoys throwing this ultimate party to give students a well deserved chance to unwind after a busy trimester and stressful exam period. Open to students of all universities and cohorts, it is a night not to be missed!
DCS ANNUAL DEAKIN BALL
DCS is famous for its ‘Annual Deakin Ball’ which boasts a high class evening of unmissable entertainment, sophistication and enjoyment. Our Ball exceeds every expectation and is considered by most to be the most anticipated and sought out event of the year. Students of all universities are welcome and are guaranteed to be wined and dined in an elegant setting, experience world class entertainment and celebrate together!
