Don’t just take our word for it
At Bond University, we strive to make you feel like one of the family and the campus your home. This doesn’t mean you can leave your dirty dishes in the library but it does mean that you will form a close community with your fellow students and you become a ‘bondy’.
What is a ‘bondy’? Well it is any student (past or present) who joins our community. Even our alumni from 20 years ago, still consider themselves bondies and so do we.
Getting connected with this community doesn’t have to start once you arrive on campus, you can connect with a bondy right now. Below you will find a number of students who are happy to chat, email or tweet with you about any of your niggling questions you might have about studying at Bond. What better way to get to the inside knowledge on the Bond experience!
Student Ambassador Program
Meet our Student Ambassadors – current students from across Australia and around the world who lead our campus tours, mentor our new students and generally make everyone feel welcome and included.
Bond with Bondies Program
The collegiate atmosphere of our small campus allows students to interact more freely and make lasting friendships … but where do you start? During O-Week, check out the clubs and societies where you’ll find others who share your interests and passions, or sign up for one of our sporting teams. We also have a wide range of Student Support Services where you’ll always find a friendly face to help you settle into life on campus.
Bond University Students' Association (BUSA)
The Bond University Student Association (BUSA) makes student life at Bond more rewarding - ranging from enhancing academic pursuits, facilitating sporting involvement and satisfying social necessities. BUSA is a voluntary, apolitical group of elected students here to represent you. BUSA offers a number of services, including clubs and societies, events, student support and external engagement.
There are many ways to connect with a Bondy before you start at Bond University. Quite often you will see our students helping out in faculties with new students, working in the Student Business Centre, organising O-Week or club sign on day - if there's one thing we know, it's that Bondies like to get involved.
Make new friends at O-Week
The start of each semester is dedicated to Orientation Week. There is where you’ll find out all about your degree and the subjects you need to take, as well as organising your Student ID, Bond email address, computer log-in and anything else you need for your studies. But it’s also where the fun starts – finding out about the clubs and societies, meeting new people at social events on and off campus, catching up with old school mates who are also going to Bond. Connect with BUSA when you first arrive on campus in O-Week and a Bondy will definitely take you under their wing and help you make the most of your time at Bond.
Engage on social media
We actively encourage all Bond students to get involved in our on-campus clubs and societies. This is where you can really expand your circle of friends and meet people who care about the same things that you do. From political persuasions and global causes through to Faculty-based student associations and sporting teams, you’ll broaden your horizons and fill up your social calendar with events, fundraisers, competitions and a whole lot of fun.
