This is a repost of an article originally published by the Ping! team– Here at HCD we know how important it is from a wellbeing perspective for new students to get off to a good start at uni. It is why we wrote our Getting Off To A Good Start guide.
Finding Your Way at Flinders is a new online orientation program designed to help set you up for success at University. It will help you:

- learn about some common ‘barriers to success’ students face, and how to overcome these
- discover tricks and shortcuts to help you study

- practise common FLO tasks such as how to submit an assignment, answer quizzes, access resources, post on the discussion board and more.
For new students: Finding Your Way at Flinders is a great way to get started with your studies and learn the ropes here at Flinders.
