Toowoomba has turned on perfect weather for the University of Southern Queensland's Open Day with a bumper crowd turning out for a day of festivities.

A record 1500 people were in attendance, with University staff opening the gates early to ease congestion and keep the smiles coming.

The University hosted hundreds of activities and things to do including flight simulations, wildlife interactions, drone races, CPR challenges, and a live performance by Triple J’s Alice Ivy.

University of Southern Queensland Marketing Coordinator, Georgina Humphrys, said this Open Day exceeded expectations after the disruptions of COVID-19.

"It was fantastic to see so many people on campus, enjoying everything the University has to offer and getting to know the staff," Mrs Humphrys said.

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

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.”
