HUNDREDS of new students have found their feet at the University of Southern Queensland Springfield campus this week.

First-time university students and newcomers to the campus were given tours and took part in other Orientation Week activities ahead of the start of Semester One next week.

More than 350 new students were welcomed to the campus by executive manager Doug Fraser.

"Total enrolments at the campus are up by 7%," Mr Fraser said.

Students Nicole Marsh and Jane-Ann Butler did a tertiary preparation program.

Orientation Week is aimed at providing students with information they need to succeed in their studies, as well as giving them a chance to meet campus staff and fellow students.

First year Bachelor of Human Services student Nicole Marsh said the event helped to ease first-day nerves.

The mother of two said completing a USQ Tertiary Preparation Program last year also helped to prepare her.

 

Bachelor of Arts student Jane-Ann Butler completed the same program to brush up on her skills.

"My son is currently in his second year of an education degree at the Springfield campus so it will be great to see him around," Ms Butler said.

An awards ceremony to present scholarships will be held next week.
