Despite the arrival of the August ‘Ekka’ westerlies, thousands of prospective students, their families and community members embraced Griffith University’s Open Day 2018.
The annual showcase event at Nathan, South Bank and Gold Coast campuses showcased the wide-ranging degrees and support programs Griffith has to offer across Health, Business, Education, Law, Humanities, Creative Arts, Music, Sciences and Engineering.
Deputy Vice Chancellor (Engagement) Professor Martin Betts said it was a lovely sight to see the three campuses full of color and enthusiasm.
“We look forward to seeing many of these students back here as part of the Griffith community in 2019 and beyond.”
There was a myriad of exciting attractions as visitors got up close and personal with drones in aerial displays and learnt more about the new Unmanned Aerial Vehicles major in the Bachelor of Engineering program.
Robotics and VR demonstrations captivated attentive audiences while the para medicine workshops and ambulance simulators continue to be a welcome attraction each year. The School of Oral Health and Dentistry showcased their 3D teeth imaging display which achieved wonderful ‘cut-through’.
South Bank campus showcased its music and creative arts offerings with live music performances, documentary screenings, animation, games design, fine art and photography information sessions.
Academics and students discussed their knowledge and experiences at Griffith during live interviews with NOVA and SeaFM radio stations.
