September 2019

Young faces from the 2019/2020 academic year at UWI St Augustine are all smiles as they enjoy the presentations at UWI Life, the student orientation programme. UWI Life, held on August 28 at the Sport and Physical Education Centre (SPEC), is part of the campus’ First Year Experience (FYE) programme, designed to make students’ transition to university as welcoming, informative and enriching as possible. Life on campus can be both thrilling and challenging. Having campus support makes it better. In a few years time these same young people will be in their graduation gowns, preparing for the next chapter of their lives and looking back on this one. Here’s to a rewarding UWI Life.
