Bigger and better open day

MEMBERS of the public can witness an array of events and activities to enjoy at this year's University of the South Pacific open day beginning tomorrow.

With the theme Shaping your Future, organisers promise the event will be bigger and better compared with previous years.

Most of the faculties are setting up displays that will portray a fair idea of what future students can achieve if they choose USP after secondary school.

A statement from USP said the open day would also inform students of new advances, programs, and courses on offer.

The main village, which is being set up by the Faculty of Science, will include displays of robots and how they work, chemistry models and explanations, hands-on experiments, and renewable energy projects.

The Faculty of Arts, Law and Education with its five schools offers the most comprehensive range of arts, law and education programs which will now be more accessible through flexible online modes.

At the event, students and members of the public can also listen to a few tips and advice from the Head of the European Union Delegation for the Pacific, Andrew Jacobs, who will be the chief guest of the day.

To be held at the university's Laucala campus, the open day is expected not only to be a learning event but a fun-filled one with many new experiences for those attending.
