The University of the Sunshine Coast Gympie will hold its inaugural Orientation for local students on Wednesday 13 February from 10am to 2.30pm.
USC Gympie Manager Graham Young invited new and continuing students enrolled in this semester’s courses at Gympie to attend Orientation and get to know each other and the facilities available.
“These Orientation activities are designed to give the Gympie students an understanding of what they will experience when they start their courses here, and what support is available to help them,” Mr Young said.
The University is, for the first time, offering degrees in Nursing Science and Primary Education at Gympie, as well as its Tertiary Preparation Pathway program.
Orientation will be held at the Wide Bay Institute of TAFE Gympie campus, where USC is building a $5.5 million building expected to be completed by May.
Activities will include an official welcome by USC Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Hill, an overview of the study centre and facilities, information on study programs and student life, sessions on information technology and library use, and light refreshments.
USC Gympie students are also encouraged to attend the full Orientation Week at the Sippy Downs campus from Monday 18 February to Friday 22 February.
The USC Gympie Orientation will be held at the Wide Bay Institute of TAFE Gympie campus, Cartwright Road, Gympie.
