While CSU has held open days in the past for potential students, this was the first official University Day at the Bathurst campus.
Year 10 and 11 students from Denison College Bathurst High campus and All Saints’ College were among the local studentswho attended the information day.
Prospective student adviser Melinda Negus said the full-day event showed the high schoolers what CSU could offer –from classes through to social clubs.
“Students received a taste of universtiy life, with campus tours, study skills session and ‘Preparing for University’ workshops,” she said.
“These sessions andworkshops will give students a great start in their HSC study and beyond into university by learningstudy skills and strategies, as well as an introduction into how to research, compare and prepare for university during their final years of school.”
At lunchtime, the high school students blew off steam with games, music, races and a giant inflatable slide on the CSU Library Lawn.
Among them were Bathurst High campus studentsBree Davey, Hollie Rotherham, Mikaela Graham and Katelyne Bostelaar who all took part in a race on inflatable horses across the lawn.
“Bringing students to Charles Sturt University in Bathurst for these activities will give them an idea of what university will be like for them in the future,” Ms Negus said.
Students from schools in Gulgong, Cobar, Wellington, Dubbo, Molong and Mudgee also attended CSU’s University Day at Bathurst.
