Botho University conducts Open Day for Parents
On Friday 17th March 2017, Botho University invited parents of all currently enrolled students for an Open Day and interaction session. The event was held at both the Gaborone and Francistown Campuses. The main aim of the event was to answer any questions about the institution, its programmes and the facilities and resources provided to students.
As part of the event, parents were taken on a tour of the campus facilities to give them an appreciation of the teaching and learning environment. For many parents, this was the first visit to the institution. The campus tour was followed by a detailed question and answer session where senior management addressed queries raised by parents or guardians. At the end of the question and answer session, the lecturers and Heads of Department of respective faculties and programmes were on hand to answer any specific queries.
138 parents attended the event in Gaborone and 70 parents in Francistown. Parents and guardians expressed their appreciation of the event, and especially the opportunity to have all their queries answered directly by the relevant members of staff.
The University was extremely grateful for the parents’ presence and assured them that their children were being provided with high quality education. Parents and guardians also stated that although their children were at tertiary level, they would still like to be involved in all aspects of their education and performance from the onset.
