Botho University set the bar high during the Welcome Day for the new students, which was held on the 23rd July 2018 at the Gaborone campus.
The highlight of the day for the new students and their parents was the Campus tour. The parents were taken around the aesthetically appealing buildings of Botho University campus and got a chance to also be the first cohort of parents to see the newly built labs.
The welcome day which was held to familiarise students and parents with the rules and regulations of the University included presentations on Botho University and how it provides Quality Education, presentations by the Sponsor, being the Department of Tertiary Education and financing, Special Needs students, as well as the presentations by the Bank.
The Welcome Day, which defined the efforts of the University that have been going on for months, paid off as new students ,together with their parents ,came in numbers to see the campus they will be housed in for the next 4 years.
“Botho University has made efforts in the past few months to reach out to as many potential students as possible and has been going to all corners of the country to ensure that prospective students apply for the available programs. We have been active on radio, social media, and all other communication platforms to ensure that prospective students have enough information on our programmes,” Boitumelo Kaetwa, Team Leader- Social Media and Brand Development said.
Kaetwa added that the University has made an extra effort in assisting parents who wish to sponsor their children to study at BU, through a partial Scholarship, known as the Botho University Scholarship.
“We wish to meet parents half way and this Scholarship is an opportunity for a student who did not meet the set criteria to study for a Degree of their choice. The scholarship is for self-sponsored students who meet the BU criteria and the student should be a citizen of Botswana. I urge parents to explore this option,” she added.
