StudyPerth's Monthly Hub Hangs

20 October 2021

The monthly Hub Hangs at the StudyPerth Student Hub are amongst my favourite events organised by StudyPerth. Since my first Hub Hang in July, I have never missed one. It is a fun way of meeting and making new friends and catching up with my old friends. You will be surprised by the people that you will meet at the event. They all are super fun and very kind!

At my first Hub Hang, I was nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. But as I started to greet everyone, they all were very welcoming. Within five minutes, I saw myself suddenly making two new friends. I was surprised by how easy it is to make the conversation flow. After all, we all have a similar story – being away from family and have to strive in this country. I guess that is what made us connect so easily.

Then, the event organiser announced that the food had arrived. They had pizzas – lots of lots of pizzas! Awesome, right? It did not stop there; they also provided us drinks such as soft drinks, tea, and coffee. Snacks like chocolate and chips are also provided – and yes, for FREE!

I promise you the fun did not stop there. There were also lots of games. My favourites are UNO and karaoke. For those who love sports, the StudyPerth Student Hub has a table tennis table which is one of the most popular games at the event.

At the last Hub Hang, I was introduced to this game, named Rummy-O. I had no idea how to play it, but thanks to my friends Deena and Curtis, I now know how to play it and I absolutely love it. So if you love this game too, let’s play this game at the next Hub Hang, shall we?

Now, let’s talk about UNO – such a fun one. We played this game in a big group. The competition was intense, and we added a small dare for the person who lost the game to spice things up. I'd say this game helps us to bond with others the most!

Karaoke is also an all-time favourite activity. You can choose any song you want from hip hop to pop. Basically, anything. Not very confident at singing? Don’t worry, you can dance with the rest of the students too. Oh, and don’t be surprised to see that some of our international student friends are very talented in singing, rapping and dancing.

In case you missed out on the last one, come and join us at the next Hub Hang.

This October, we will have an exciting and specially themed Halloween Hub Hang. We hope to see you then!
