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 🙂

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’!!

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!!
