NUI Galway is hosting its tenth annual series of information evenings around the country for students starting their studies at the University in September 2009. Parents are also invited to the information evenings also known as Student Send-Offs.
The ‘Student Send-Off for the Midlands will take place at 7pm on Monday August 24 in the Radisson, Athlone.
Throughout the evening, NUI Galway lecturers, Alumni Association board members, Student Services staff, and Students’ Union representatives will be on hand to advise students and answer any questions relating to university life. The topics covered will include accommodation, finance and the students’ assistance fund, safety, careers, counselling, clubs, societies and the Students’ Union.
JB Terrins, director of Alumni Relations at NUI Galway, said: “This is an ideal opportunity for both parents and students to get first-hand advice on finding one’s way around campus during those first days of term. Students can find out about the University’s support services and the benefits of becoming involved in the many Clubs and Societies.”
Some 3,000 new students will join NUI Galway in September, with first year registration commencing on Monday September 14.
