It's a welcome return to live events at Southern Cross University, with the first in-person Open Day in three years running this weekend August 5 to 7.
Campus tours and chat show-style panels with industry experts will be held in person at the Coffs Harbour campus on Friday 5 August, at Lismore campus on Saturday 6 August and at the Gold Coast campus on Sunday 7 August.
Featuring current students, alumni, academics and industry experts, the informal panels will give prospective students a deeper insight into the study experience at Southern Cross and their potential career opportunities.
More than 30 panels are running across the weekend at the three campus locations.
Vice President (Engagement) Mr Ben Roche said staff were relishing the prospect of speaking face-to-face again with future students.
"Zoom was fantastic during the pandemic and it allowed us to hold events and gather virtually but I think we all can't wait to get back to on-campus events and being able to interact in-person again," he said.
"The panel line-up is a much more informal and engaging way of talking about the Southern Cross experience and your study options with the people who know all about it and of course the opportunity to ask those burning questions about study."
For those who can't make the on-campus events, or who seek a truly hybrid Open Day experience, on-demand videos and course information are available on the Southern Cross University Open Day platform. Future students can watch videos of current students talking about their experiences, take virtual tours of the campuses and facilities and find out more about the courses they are interested in.
"We've tried to do an Open Day that caters for all this year and the hybrid format is proving really popular. It's the best of both worlds," said Mr Roche.
