What a weekend! The College was alive with visitors during our Open Days on August 17 and 18. Our students and staff were thrilled to welcome so many guests who came to St Mark’s to experience residential college life first-hand.
St Mark’s students took families on tours around the grounds and facilities, and shared their stories of moving away from home, how they’ve settled into St Mark’s, what they love most about College life, and why they chose to live at St Mark’s whilst studying at one of the universities in Adelaide.
One visitor said “the College looks amazing and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. It’s great to meet current students and hear about their daily life at College, the support they received starting university for the first time and how they’ve made so many friends.”
Visitors enjoyed delicious meals throughout the day and hot beverages from EHP Coffee and Xpresso Mobile Cafe coffee vans. Some even jumped on the St Mark’s Gas Truck (1936 Dodge) to travel between the city university campuses and the College.
One parent commented that “the tour was very informative, and I have no doubt my child will be well looked after. I’m very impressed with the academic and personal support that students receive, the quality of the meals and the immaculate grounds and facilities.”
As some people were unable to join us for the Open Days, we extend an open invitation to people to contact us to book a tour at a time convenient to them.
