Deakin Warrnambool Open day
3rd August 2014
Deakin University's Warrnambool Campus was yesterday open to the public to see the facilities and the courses available.
Well over 900 people visited the campus and enjoyed information sessions, campus and accommodation tours, faculty displays and tours of the labs and research facilities.
Vice-chancellor Professor Jane den Hollander said she was pleased with the large turnout yesterday and said growing the Warrnambool campus was a big priority. "The more numbers that we have the more we can offer here," she said.
"We'd hope that we'd have a very good year here next year. I think with all the conversation in the budget and the future of education has focused people. If you're going to get educated you should get into the system early and quick. I think that's a very important message," she said.
