Over 1200 High School Students at NCU’s Open Day
Over 1200 students and 64 teachers from approximately 52 secondary schools from around the country visited the Northern Caribbean University’s main campus as guests to the university’s “Open Day” activities.
On Thursday, October 25, 2018, the Northern Caribbean University (NCU) held it’s annual “Open Day” celebration; acting as a host to hundreds of prospective students and their teachers from schools spanning all across Jamaica.
“Open Day” is a day set aside by the university, to educate secondary school students on what NCU has to offer.
When asked for her remarks on the success of the day, Director of Recruitment and Admissions, Mrs. Georgette Baker, told The Trumpet that she was satisfied with the outcomes of the day.
She said, “For the recruitment and admissions unit, the overall goals of “Open Day” were met. Given the other competing events of which we became aware, the target was to have approximately 50 schools, expose the students, their guidance counselors and teachers to our undergraduate and graduate offerings, and give them a tour of the campus and its facilities.
In the effort to educate the visiting students, several departments managed different booth displays that provided a more literal exposure to the programs offered by the university. An “edutainment” session – channeled through cultural and other expressions, was also held in the university’s gymnatorium.
