Students at the University of the Sunshine Coast’s Gympie campus will enjoy an upbeat start to the 2016 study year with Orientation Day on Thursday 18 February.
A range of fun activities, live music and information sessions will be held across the day to help new and continuing students prepare for Semester 1 and meet some of their fellow classmates at the campus on Cartwright Road.
The event will begin with a Welcome to Country and official opening at 10am, followed by a program of information sessions about practical study skills, University facilities and student support services.
Students will able to browse through a range of information stalls, receive a free lunch and enjoy a performance from The Short Note musical trio from 12.30pm.
The event will also include program-specific sessions for students enrolled in Nursing Science, Primary Education, Business and Accounting, Social Sciences, Engineering and the Tertiary Preparation Pathway.
USC Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Hill said Orientation Day was a great chance for Gympie students to gain an introduction to university life before Semester 1 begins on Monday 29 February.
“These orientation activities give students a chance to familiarise themselves with the campus, learn about their study programs, and meet their teaching staff and fellow students,” he said.
