More than 7,000 prospective students and their families visited ECU's Mount Lawley Campus yesterday for the biggest ECU Open Day event in recent years.
The day was a big hit with prospective students who took the opportunity to speak with teaching staff and current students about the wide range courses available at ECU.
Visitors experienced ECU for themselves with activities hosted by ECU staff and students including Deal or No Deal, interactive gaming technology, jewellery-making and motorsports simulations.
Would-be TV stars also tried presenting the weather at ECU's broadcasting studio.
Presentations were also held over the day to give prospective students a better idea of what they can expect at University, and the types of careers ECU courses can lead to.
Talented WAAPA dancers, actors and musicians delighted audiences with performances from recent productions. Work by production, design, costume, sound and lighting was also showcased.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kerry Cox was pleased to see so many prospective students touring the campus, talking to staff and experience all that ECU has to offer.
"Open Day was a great success and we hope to see many of our visitors join us as ECU students in the near future," he said.
"Thanks to all ECU staff, students and volunteers for their hard work and enthusiasm on the day."
