Adelaide University Media students are automatically members of the AUMA, free of charge. The AUMA was created to allow media students to socialise with each other and members of the industry. We throw a pub crawl, careers night and media ball annually and our events are open to all students. All our profits go to further subsidising and increasing the size and quality of our events.
The AUMA is currently the only student representative body supported by the media faculty. However the AUMA retains it’s autonomy and is governed for and by students. We have a history of extremely successful events and believe that we are an inescapable part of being a media student at Adelaide University.
Summary of Events
The classic faculty pub crawl usually held towards the end of the first semester has increased in size steadily over the previous years. Predominantly, it is Adelaide University Media students who attend, however the scale of the event attracts a students from a variety of faculties.
The careers night is an opportunity for media students to interact directly with heads of industry and held towards the end of the second semester. It generates moderate interest and has, in previous years, received a large, positive response from a number of media corporations asked to provide a representative.
The most anticipated event on our schedule, the Media Ball, is usually held in second semester each year. The glitz and glamour coupled with the end of assignments is enough to attract a large number of students to the prestigious event.
At the beginning of every year we look for willing media students to join the committee and help out in organising events. If you're not part of the committee but still want to help the AUMA in any way please contact us via email or Facebook message and we'll let you know what you can do.
*We're currently looking for media students to help contribute to our blog email us for more details!
