Hobart Open Day on Sunday
The community are invited to go beyond the red doors this weekend for UTAS Open Day.
The Sandy Bay campus, the Conservatorium of Music and the Tasmanian School of Art will all open their doors, and the Medical Sciences Building will also host visitors for tours (pre-booking required).
Jo Bailey, director of marketing at UTAS, said “An extensive range of tours, displays and activities are planned and there will be something for everyone, whether they’re planning to study or are just curious about the university and looking for an enjoyable day out.”
“A great drawcard for is the free public lecture by Stephen Mayne, founder of Crikey.com.au.”
Mayne is Australia’s best known shareholder activist. His talk, Naming and Shaming: Making Business Accountable, will examine why transparency and good corporate governance are vital in today’s business world.
“Visitors will have the opportunity to speak with UTAS staff and students about courses, scholarships, applications and accommodation.”
“We will also be showcasing a range of activities from TUU Clubs and Societies including Digivisipop, the Medieval Society and the Taiko Drummers” Ms Bailey said.
