Coventry Telegraph - - YOUR LIFE - A young vis­i­tor en­joys an ice cream on cam­pus

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.”
