Open days are organised by many tertiary institutions to give you the chance to visit and experience the institution first-hand. They help you to make decisions on what and where you'd like to study and can usually tell you more about the institution than a prospectus.
On 19 October, Windhoek Hospitality Culinary College held an open day once again. The aim was to opens doors to prospective students, to provide them with an opportunity to gather more information about WHCC as an institution and letting them take a good look at the learning facilities like the kitchen, library, student computer centre, court yard, admin offices, bar/restaurant, front office and social spaces. The prospective students got to meet the WHCC administration team, speak to lecturers to get a better idea about the potential diploma or certificate programme and life on campus. They also got the opportunity to practice table setting etiquette, led by lecturer Reinhardt Stanley, an informative practice where Stanley showed the students the place settings that serve as maps, which would be giving you a glimpse of the food you are about to enjoy. Stanley taught the students that you know what you're being served by the setting of the table. WHCC’S open days are always a great way to help prospective students decide if the college is the right fit for them.
Some open days are still being held virtually because of the pandemic. Tertiary institutions like WHCC have made an effort to offer as much of an authentic experience as possible. WHCC runs open days throughout the year.
