Prospective students to check out campus life

27 April 2010

About 3,000 students and teachers from as far away as Northland and Hawkes Bay are expected to converge on the University of Waikato’s campus for the annual Open Day on April 30.

Open Day is designed to give prospective students a taste of university life and an opportunity to find out more about what the University of Waikato offers. The event is open to everyone who is thinking about full- or part-time tertiary study, from secondary school level to mature students.

Would-be students can attend mini lectures on topics such as “No-one here gets out alive! The ethics of life and death decisions”, “The biggest volcanic eruptions on earth!” and “What presses your buttons: money, ego or love? How to get maximum value from studying at the Waikato Management School”.

Other activities include campus and facility tours, and a chance to check out degree programmes, speak with University students and staff, and take part in laboratory demonstrations.

The University of Waikato Open Day runs from 9am to 2pm on Friday April 30. For more information call 0800 WAIKATO or visit for a programme.
