St Paul’s is a close-knit community where staff and students alike are here to help you. From the moment you enter Paul’s you will be made to feel welcome and cared for, especially by the Student Deans who will maintain close contact with you throughout the year. It goes without saying that the Warden, Dean of Undergraduates, Associate Dean of Undergraduates, Junior Deans, Chaplain and Senior Tutor all take a personal interest in each and every Pauline.
Positive relationships and friendship build a sense of belonging and a feeling of being connected, which encourages Paulines to explore their capabilities in and around their University courses and college experiences. This web of inter-connected relationships between fellow students, staff and Old Paulines provides a net and spring board of support.
The tight-knit college lifestyle helps foster organic friendships and various other relationships. Not only will you live and learn in close proximity to other like-minded individuals, you will inevitably participate in, and have the opportunity to co-ordinate student activities including social gatherings, functions and parties.
The strong relationship between peers, with Graduate House and Women’s College and other College students, and the University at large means, there is always something going on at College!
Some important events during the year include Welcome Week, Inter-college Dinners, University and College Dinner, Faculty Dinners, Surreal Sounds Music Concert, Jazz Dinner Dance, Valedictory Dinner and the Formal.
