Larger-than-life art installations greeted a record crowd of more than 5,000 at The University of Notre Dame’s Open Day in Fremantle’s West End last Sunday on 19 August.

Underscoring Notre Dame’s unique town university ambience, the streets of the city’s West End reflected a community festival vibe from 10am to 3pm.

This year’s event theme, 'explore your next chapter', encouraged students to explore degrees on offer, attend a range of school talks and sessions, take part in a range of activities and mingle with Notre Dame’s academics and current students.

The University’s largest community event of the year welcomed future students and the Fremantle community to a day of live entertainment, free delicious eats including hot chips, fairy floss, and a barbecue.

Executive Director of Admissions & Student Services, Rommie Masarei, explained the significance of Open Day at the university.

 “Open Day gives us the opportunity to invite people to experience our Campus in action - engaging with our students and staff, to get to know the Notre Dame experience,” she said.

“The campus was full of activities, hospitality and information sharing, made more authentic by so many of our students sharing their journey and their chapter with us.”
