“What does it really mean to be a student of The UWI?” That’s the question at the heart of the #BeUWI – BeYou. BeWe. BeUWI. campaign launched in November 2016 to kick off The UWI St Augustine’s 2017-2018 student recruitment cycle.
BeYou speaks to students finding their niche while remaining part of The UWI family. The campaign highlights the personal stories of students. Christopher Lou-Hing, one of the campaign ambassasdors captured above is a first-year Film Studies major.
“UWI is a really great place, with a vibrant community. There are many interesting people and when interesting people gather, interesting things happen, like at the Film programme!”
BeWe captures the diversity of students who come to The UWI; millennials fresh out of secondary school to mature, career-oriented people with years of real-world experience. “We” are students from different countries and socio-economic backgrounds.
#BeUWI reflects the ongoing institutional philosophy that it does not matter where you come from, it’s where you want to go. To BeUWI is to Be ready for the possibilities of life, to Be people who are not only capable of academic excellence, but also critical thought and innovation and most importantly to Be individuals who effect change all over the world.
