Want to know more about what it’s like to be a Massey student? The University’s Auckland campus will open its doors to prospective students and their families on Saturday August 11.

Hundreds are expected to turn out on Open Day. This follows a successful event held at the Manawatū campus earlier this week, where more than 1400 people attended. Wellington’s Open Day will be held Friday August 31.

Lectures on programmes and degrees from Massey will cover finance, food technology, marketing, agriculture, accounting, aviation, psychology, nursing, education, engineering, ecology and more.

What's on?

The popular Science Comes Alive shows will be held throughout the day, focusing on fire and ice, and is a great watch for the whole family.

At 1pm, the chemistry crew will demonstrate a huge ping pong explosion on the grass outside the Institute of Natural and Mathematical Sciences building, with 500 ping pong balls flying into the air out of a large drum.

Staff from the School of Engineering and Advanced Technology will have robots and gadgets on display and there will be hands-on science activities in the Watson Science labs, where you can make your own gunge!

Information sessions and workshops on scholarships, postgraduate study, accommodation, budgeting, student exchanges and studying by distance are all on the Open Day menu, as well as free popcorn and hamburgers, a photo booth and a live band. The ZM Black Thunder will also be on campus, giving away free toasted sandwiches.

Auckland Open Day will be held on Saturday August 11, from 9am-3pm. Head to www.massey.ac.nz/opendays for more information and to register attendance.
