Titahi ki TUA offers Māori students an opportunity to meet and interact with other AUT Māori and non-Māori students in and outside of class.  During Semester titahi ki tua provides an overnight stay at the AUT Marae every Wednesday (during semester).  The evening includes dinner, study or kapa haka.  This year the kapa haka group opened the new WG building  performed at the Blues Sports Awards and various other events outside of AUT.
Apart from the dinner and kapa haka, TKT were had an ice skating, bowling and movie night which took place during semester.  This gave students the opportunity to have fun after their exams or assignments were complete.  In conclusion, titahi ki tua makes university a much easier place to complete academic studies and also create new friendships with other Māori and non-Māori students of AUT.
