MR UNIVERSITY HALL 2013
Hello Hallers and everyone,
I’m here to give you a special event coverage of the first ever male pageant held in University Hall!! *cue screaming girls haha
On Tuesday the 20th of August, ResLife in conjunction with Tom Campbell and Sean Matjeraie from the Leadership program and a dedicated group of Pathways Leader students (Greg, Mia, Inez, Clarissa, Daniel, Michelle, Eric, Matthew and Emma) held the inaugural “Mr University Hall” contest.
The purpose of this event was to raise funds and awareness for Beyond Blue, which provides support for Australians who suffer from depression or anxiety. Beyond Blue is working to reduce the impact of depression and anxiety in the community by raising awareness and understanding and encourage people to seek help which is an excellent cause for University hall to support.
I definitely couldn’t miss such an event, get ready for a picture heavy post 😀 Photos taken by our lovely photographer Felicia Bateman and some taken by me 🙂
With the stage nicely set up in the dining hall it was time to introduce our contestants!!
All the male contestants presented themselves with great confidence, charisma and good looks which left all the judges and hallers in awe and happiness.
Next up was a night filled with non-stop entertainment with our MC, Tom doing a great job in hosting the show!!
In between the contestants strutting their stuff, we had our very own stand up comedian, Andrew Gannon who made the audience laugh with his theatrical and comedic gig.
Next up, the contestants continued to show off their many talents.
It seems that many of them managed to impress the judges 🙂
In between, we saw the girls from DanceUWA put up an impressive performance!!
You can view their performance on Youtube here :
The contestants continued to impress the judges and audience with all kinds of different talents such as musical performances, rapping, how fast you can devour a burger, magic show. So much entertainment in one night!! I must say all the contestants were really spontaneous and did their best.
What’s more, many members of the audience got to win freebies through the lucky draw!!
It was a difficult ‘battle’ between the contestants for the title but in the end, the Haller who demonstrated hall spirit and talent was MR ANGUS WRIGHT from L HOUSE winning the title of ‘Mr University Hall 2013’!!

That concludes my event coverage for Mr University Hall.
Hope you enjoyed it!!
Overall the first ever male pageant held in Unihall was a success, they managed to raise money for charity, over $1000 was raised for Beyond Blue and provide a fun-filled memorable night for hallers. Hall life is indeed very interesting and I encourage anyone to attend this event next year!!
