The annual Open Day of the North-West University Vaal Triangle Campus (NWU Vaal) was hosted on 14 May 2016. This particular Open Day emerged within a clouded rain-filled day. But the dreary state of the weather could not dull the excitement and curiosity of the prospective students. They were heartily welcomed with warm smiles and enjoyed a fun filled day.


The prospective students and their parents had the opportunity to gain information and experience the campus in order to acquire the needed information and motivation to make their finest choice regarding their potential university and field of study. The respective Academic Schools each hosted their own information sessions in order to inform the students about the various fields of study as well as the needed requirements for each prospective field. The information sessions were a valued effort where jumbled and nervous prospective students strolled out of the information sessions with fulfillment.

Although the information sessions helped to decrease the students’ lack of information, the life of the party was unquestionably in the Student Centre.  Within the Student Centre, all the affiliated student bodies and residences were gathered in high spirits, eager to acquaint and inform the prospective students about student life and academic assistance in specific fields of study.

The library accommodated the Academic development and support group who profoundly informed the prospective students about the variety of support available on campus in order to assist students with their academic and personal issues. But that was not the only helpful event in the library. The library staff had guided informative tours within the library, holistically enlightening the prospective students about everything they need to know about the library.

Prospective students complemented the day by stating that it was very useful and that they now had a clearer depiction about their choices regarding what to study. They eagerly exclaimed their prospective fields of study and their excitement about hopefully becoming a student at the North West University Vaal Campus.

The objective of the day was achieved and prospective students and their parents left the event more informed and content. Come rain or shine, the campus hosted yet another successful Open Day with countless informative opportunities for the soon-to-be students of the NWU Vaal Campus.
