THE University of the South Pacific Solomon Islands (USPSI) Campus in Honiara has postponed its open day festivity that was supposed to be held this Friday to the 21st of this month.
The postponement came after the University’s decision to extend and continue with its registration till Friday 7th this week to permit late students to register for the second semester.
“We decided to postpone our Open Day celebration to 21st this month and not on Friday 7th as previously set.
“The deferment is to allow our staff and students to continue with registration on Friday without disturbances,” said Layson Leve, Coordinator Administration of the USP Solomon Islands Campus.
The USP open day is an important event in the University’s calendar.
The day would be an exciting moment and also a privilege for high schools students and the public to learn about the different functions of USP and the programs they offer. The highlight of the event will be the music and cultural performances to be staged by local students at the USPSI Campus car park complex near Lawson Tama.
“Getting general information, book sales, library tour, displays by Faculties, Interdisciplinary Colleges & Support Services, Book sales, Career Talks for senior high school students and Cultural performances will be featured during the day event, “said Leve.
This could be an opportunity for anyone of you who never knew of the function of USP or knew nothing about USP to come and get to know for yourself. Also a chance for students or the public to ask the USP staff questions about the functions of USP.
The event is looked forward to by the university staff, and schools all around the region as it gives them an ideal platform to explore what lies in store for them in the future.
The open day is given a very high priority by USP as it is aware of the role it plays in fostering the young minds of our youth and molding them into model citizens of their respective countries and contributing to the growth of their nations.
It aimed at ensuring that prospective students are made fully aware of the different faculties and courses within the university so as to enable them to make sound decisions regarding their future studies and career paths.
USP will celebrate this year (2015) Open Day with the theme “USP-shaping your future”.
A day filled with exciting performances from the Islands around the region, tantalizing food, fun competitions, entertainment, a chance to be LIVE on television and radio and a taste of your future.
“Open Day is a day where the University opens to the general public therefore all are welcome to this event.
“I would say here that education in broader sense can ultimately help one determine his/her direction in life. And USP is a vehicle for education,” Leve concluded.
