On the 19th of November, students from Homebush Boys High School attended the Western Sydney U Day at Parramatta South Campus.

The day started with an introduction of some of the courses offered at Western Sydney University. Followed by, Q and A from many Alumni and current students enjoying their time at the university. The interaction between students asking questions was very insightful for future references.

Workshops to gain understanding into different courses offered was followed by the Q and A. Lakshaya and I made our way to the labs, where we explored the interesting and revolutionary field of Data Science. We were given the opportunity to learn that the application of Data Science is very vast, therefore can be seen in many areas ranging from professional sporting communities to analysing data from astronomers.

Next, we visited the field of business, where we learnt many new things, such as where business concepts could be applied. We dived deeper into the topic of business by looking at the skills that could be used in an office environment. Stereotypes such as business being all about money were also broken. The engaging speech was supported by little gifts from the staff given to the students asking questions.

All together, today was a success where Lakshaya and I feel blessed with the knowledge we gained through the mentors at Western Sydney University. Let's also not forget the delicious sausages and the unforgettable burgers.

Overall a good day was had by all and we’d like to thank Mrs Anton for the opportunity.
