Community Friends & Networks Programme

Students encouraged to get Cooking on Campus

Community Friends and Networks Programme

The UTAS Student Engagement Leaders (SELs) through the Community Friends and Networks Programme (CFNP) are embarking on an exciting program aimed at engaging students in many different activities during the second semester.

One of the activities is Cooking on Campus, which aims to encourage students to eat healthily, interspersed with a bit of fun and enjoyment.

Kirsten Bacon, one of the SELs who will be facilitating this program, said “we hope to provide lots of different food experiences and provide an opportunity for students to meet new people and establish some great friendships and connections.”

Cooking on Campus in Sandy Bay occurs every second week from 4pm-6pm at the UTAS Accommodation Services. The next session will be on Friday, 23rd August. In Launceston, sessions are also fortnightly, alternating between Wednesdays and Sundays. The next sessions will be Sunday 11th August and Wednesday 21st August).

All students who are interested in learning how to cook healthy, easy and affordable food in a fun way are most welcome. The program is able to accommodate 10-15 students per session. Bookings are essential to allow us to arrange enough resources in advance.
