USIU-Africa hosts open day for prospective students and their parents

By Brenda Odhiambo

Last Saturday, USIU-Africa hosted its first Open Day for recent Form Four Leavers and students who had recently finished their A-Levels. The event presented an opportunity for the prospective students and their parents to learn about the University's programs, campus life, and the admissions process. It was also a chance for students, faculty, and staff to showcase the University's diverse and dynamic community.

The event began with opening remarks from the University's administration, followed by a presentation by the Vice Chancellor on various facets of on-campus life. In her comments, the Vice Chancellor noted that the event was an opportunity for the students to not only connect to others, but to also put them properly on the path to beginning their journey into higher education.

Her presentation was followed by an overview of the programs and courses offered at USIU-Africa, done by the Deans of the respective Schools.

Throughout the day, visitors interacted with students, faculty, and staff, and get a sense of the University's values and culture. Prospective students also had the opportunity to have one on one interactions with faculty members based on their areas of academic interest to get a deeper sense of what the University has to offer. The University's Placement and Career Services Office was also on hand to provide guidance and advice on career paths and job opportunities.

The highlight of the day was the campus tour. Led by a team of student ambassadors, the tour provided a first-hand look at the University's state of the art facilities, including the library, classrooms, sports facilities, and student housing. The tour gave prospective students a chance to ask questions and learn more about campus life.
