The University of the Sunshine Coast’s Gympie campus will welcome almost 50 new students when it hosts its mid-year Orientation Day on Wednesday 16 July.
USC Gympie Manager Graham Young said the day’s activities would give the students an overview of the University’s facilities and information on study programs and student life.
“Our Orientation activities will introduce new students to USC Gympie’s facilities and resources and to staff, including program co-ordinators,” Mr Young said.
“The day will give students commencing studies this semester an understanding of what they will experience in their courses here, and the support that’s available to them.”
Highlights of the day will include an official welcome by USC Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Birgit Lohmann at 10am and Startsmart sessions from 11am to noon to introduce students to the programs of study for Nursing, Business, and Commerce (Accounting) degrees.
There will also be an introduction to USC’s Tertiary Preparation Pathway for those students who do not directly qualify for entry to a degree program.
New students can also attend sessions on information technology and library use.
