{gallery}http://www.flickr.com/photos/theuwi/sets/72157627599772174/{/gallery} On Friday 2nd September from 9am to 3pm, UWI Life Student, the second event of the UWI Life programme 2011, welcomed all first-year and first-time undergraduate students. This all-day event, which included an Orientation Village, aimed to help students make a smooth transition from secondary school to university life.

The theme “Show Your True Colours,” encouraged students to understand the differences amongst themselves and the personalities they may encounter. The day was packed with various activities, games, giveaways and live entertainment while students were given the opportunity to meet and greet each other.

During the lunch break, the students were invited to explore the Orientation Village where they learnt about their respective faculties and were exposed to the myriad activities available on the Campus. They were given the chance to interact with representatives and gain information on support services, mentorship programmes and career opportunities.
