The University of the South Pacific (USP)—The USP Samoa Campus will hold a second Open Day at its Savai’i Centre in Salelologa on Friday, 29 July, targeting all potential students from Savaii.
The exhibition showcased USP’s strong pool of programmes and career pathways to reflect the day’s theme of “Shaping Pacific Futures”.
Open Days help potential students to discover and be advised on selecting pathways for higher learning and future career-goals.
USP is ranked among the top 10% of the world’s best universities.
The open day event showcased other USP programmes and courses offered at the Samoa Campus besides Agriculture.
“This year, much more prominence will be given to the programmes and courses offered by the eight academic units comprising six schools of the University, plus Pacific TAFE and Pace-SD, that could similarly be studied online from the Savaii Centre,’ states a press release from the university.
“The overarching expectation is that the University’s collective offerings will work in tandem to create a complete picture of USP’s offerings, and a lasting and decisive effect on potential USP students and visitors alike”.
Mr. Fa’atauva’a Tavita, a PASS Leader and 3rd Year Bachelor of Science student majoring in Physics and Mathematics; and Ms Eloi Alatimu, a 1st Year student in the Diploma in Management Studies programme will jointly delivered the open day keynote.
The pair helped to inspire, motivate, and inform their peers, in an approach taken by USP Samoa Campus to respond to the global call to empower and give voice to the youth.
“Both students are already role models on campus, and both manifest most of the graduate attributes that the University has strategically prepared for its students, as featured in its strategic plans,” states the release.
Among invited guests in Savaii were college students, parents, teachers and friends of USP.
The Open Day Committee Chair and emcee for the day was Afioga Galumalemana Ronna Lee.
