‘Planning ahead for a bright future’ has been the moto of young Joseva Vitinavulagi and his visit to the Fiji National University Open Day at Nasinu Campus provided him with a perfect opportunity to explore the wide range of study opportunities on offer and get a feel of student life at a tertiary institution.
The Year 9 student of LDS Church College said he was fascinated with the student projects on display at Nasinu Campus.
Originally from Verata, Tailevu, Vitinavulagi said he was looking forward to attending the Open Day since they were informed of the event several weeks ago.
“This is a great opportunity for me to find out more about the programmes that I’m interested in. It will actually help me to narrow down the many career choices that I have at the moment,” said Vitinavulagi.
“It is an awesome experience to directly talk to the staff teaching the programmes and the most important of all is the interaction with FNU students. Talking to FNU students has given me a better idea of how some programmes fit my own interest and the kinds of options and experiences I can expect at FNU.”
While gently caressing a lamb, he said with the many exciting models on display, the College of Agriculture, Fisheries and Fisheries (CAFF) has captivated his interest.
“When you look from the top this College display looks like a village. You cannot actually know from outside how beautiful and attractive the displays actually are inside this College Village. It has everything – from old ways of fish ponds to integrated systems used today, the many different types of plants and even some animals.”
“It is even so interesting to see the furniture done by students as projects, gives an idea of the exciting environment the students must be studying in.”
“I acknowledge the efforts of the students and staff for putting together such a wonderful range of displays,” Vitinavulagi added.
