The University of New England is planning a special event - Life at Altitude - to attract students. The promo material reads in part:
"Friday 6 May 2011
Check out UNE courses, meet lecturers and get a feel for campus life at the open day on Friday 6 May 2011. You’ll have a chance to speak to our academic staff about your study options, join one of the University campus or college tours and take a look at UNE’s learning, living, and recreational facilities. Plus, there will be free entertainment and activities - we’ll even put on breakfast and lunch for you. In other words, Friday is your day to explore UNE and find out everything you need to make an informed decision about your future.
Saturday 7 May 2011
On Saturday 7 May, 2011 UNE launches into a massive event, with a huge day planned to help you get acquainted with the other great side of uni life - FUN! Channel V will be there with their giant silent disco and VJs. And of course there’ll be incredible live performances from the best Australian acts including Little Red, Children Collide, Operator Please, Amy Meredith, the Seabellies and great local supports. With amazing local food and plenty of stuff to see and do, this is more than just another University open day. This is Life at Altitude."
It does sound as though it might be fun, as well as educational. For those interested in learning more, the University has created a special web site.
