It was smiles all-round with record numbers of prospective students attending the University of Southern Queensland’s Open Day.

After a three-year Covid-forced hiatus, the University of Southern Queensland officially rolled out the welcome mats at its Ipswich and Springfield campuses on the weekend for an action-packed Open Day.

Hundreds of people from across the state attended Sunday’s event (August 14), soaking up perfect weather while experiencing the best of what the University has to offer.

It was smiles all-round with visitors taking part in wildlife interactions, drone races, CPR challenges and much more.

University of Southern Queensland Marketing Coordinator, Georgina Humphrys, said this year’s Open Day exceeded expectations with record numbers of prospective students streaming through the campus gates.

“With more than 160 programs on offer – from Archaeology to Psychology, Animal Science to Space Science – we have something for everyone,” Mrs Humphrys said.

“Open Day is an excellent opportunity for University hopefuls to meet their future teachers, see where their lectures will take place and really experience what it’s like to study here.”

The University of Southern Queensland will host its Toowoomba Open Day on Sunday (August 21).
