Great success for Monash Open Day 2016

Monash Prato Centre’s Open Day on 21 April concluded the three-day program of Prato Campus Week 2016

More than 800 people participated in the day’s activities. People of all ages challenged their English speaking skills by joining the Speedy Conversation Exchange and afterwards they relaxed at the traditional Australian barbecue. Designed for students and with the aim of promoting intercultural exchange among the universities in Prato, Monash Open Day attracted locals, American, Italian and of course Australian students, who enjoyed taking pictures together (and with our kangaroo mascot Skippy!), tasting delicious gelato and dancing to swing music in the courtyard until late. It was a day of celebration and fun and the community reacted very positively and warmly. We are already planning Open Day 2017!
