SEEING IF STUDY DREAMS PAN OUT
THOUSANDS of potentiali l studentst d t have turned out for the James Cook University Open Day.
Budding scientists, doctors and scribes visited JCU’s Townsville campus yesterday to discover if life at North Queensland’s biggest university was for them.
The day included information sessions, career talks and tours.
JCU event co- ordinator Kiara Cantamessa said the Open Day was a massive success, with plenty of people coming through the gates.
“I think we would have got about seven to eight thousand people through the door,” she said.
“It’s the one day that JCU opens its doors to members of the general public. It’s not just about getting information but also an opportunity for people to check out our facilities.
“It’s our main recruitment event of the year and I think it went really well.”
