Arts, social sciences win DWU Open Day award

The Faculty of Arts and Social Science (FASS) in Divine Word University is the winner of the “best faculty display” of the University’s Open Day at the Madang Campus.

The Open Day was held on Sunday 6th May, 2018.

FASS’ victory was announced at the awards ceremony held after the Open Day on Sunday afternoon at the SVD Memorial Auditorium, which was packed to capacity with students and staff eager to know which faculty was best for 2018.

The FASS dethroned last year’s winners, the Faculty of Business and Informatics, which came second this year. The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Faculty of Education finished third and fourth respectively.

DWU President, Professor Cecilia Nembou, PhD, commended the students for all the effort they put in to showcasing their respective departments and faculties.

Professor Nembou spoke well of the students’ ability to use information and communication technologies during the displays and engagement with the public at their respective booths.

The Registrar of DWU, Mrs Cecilia N’Drower, said on behalf of the judges that it was difficult for them to pick the winner as everyone really showcased their faculties to the best of their abilities.

“I have to say that this year’s Open Day is the best compared to the previous years, as you students are very creative in your presentations. It is very difficult to pick a winner,” reiterated Mrs N’Drower.

The Open Day had many sponsors and partners participating.
