A week-long orientation for new students at the University of the South Pacific saw students welcomed, given academic advice and taken on campus tours.
Campus Life group manager Glenn Pope said it was very encouraging to see students turning up in huge numbers.
“Close to 1000 students actively participated in the programme hosted by the University’s College of Foundation Studies on the first day,” said Mr Pope, whose office is responsible to see the orientation week end successfully.
“An annual event in the USP calendar, orientation marks the beginning of a new and exciting phase of a student’s academic career and life at university.”
Mr Pope urged new students to use the opportunity to participate in all aspects of the orientation programme to ensure a smoother transition for them into the university’s academic and social life.
“This has proven to have significant impact on successful first years to embark on a university life,” he said.
“While making the transition from one’s previous school, to university life is not easy. USP recognises the challenges that new students are likely to encounter and is committed to helping new students, explore opportunities for involvement on-campus and to successfully connect with their new community,” he added.
For the first time this year, there will be an orientation session for parents and partners of new students.
Parents and partners of first-year students are encouraged to attend a session designed to give parents and partners an opportunity to interact with staff and discover USP.
“This will give the parents and partners a clear idea on the life and environment their children are living in,” Mr Pope said.
