Community Day hailed a huge success
HUNDREDS of visitors enjoyed fun games and activities at CU Coventry’s first annual Community Day earlier this month.
It was CU Coventry’s largest ever event with more than 300 guests, including children, adults, current students and staff members visiting the campus.
Everyone who came along enjoyed ice cream, face painting, arts and crafts, inflatable games, sport activities and circus performers.
Guests also took part in interactive course drop-in sessions with academics throughout the day and listen to SparkTalks discussing topical research and innovation.
Oliver Rossetti of CU Coventry, formerly known as Coventry University College, said: “We wanted to organise an action-packed day to not only showcase Coventry as a fantastic, vibrant city but also to engage individuals of all ages, in higher education and what is on offer in the local area.
“As an institution that prides itself on offering flexible, life-shaped learning, and one which has prospered in the city of Coventry over the years, we wanted to give something back to the local community and with it being the largest and most popular event we have ever held here at CU Coventry, I feel we did exactly that!
“We definitely look forward to holding our next community day in spring 2018.”
