Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

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.”
