First Year Student, Nacanieli Kubu was happy as he received his prize of a Samsung A70 Smartphone.

Nacanieli had the most points on the leaderboard of the USP Orientation App 2020 for posting stories and pictures of his experience at the USP Orientation Week 2020.

Nacanieli said he enjoyed spending time with his first year friends during orientation week and he would like to appreciate the Staff and student for the amazing start to University life.

The USP Orientation App 2020 was introduced by USP Campus Life Office to ensure a more efficient information dissemination for First Year Students. The App included features such as push notifications, interactive maps of USP, Faculty Orientation Session details, Workshop details etc. It enabled the students to stay informed of each day’s programme and attend as many activities as possible during the week.

The prize of a Smartphone was offered as an incentive to first year students to ensure that they register and communicate via the app. Nacanieli posted many comments and pictures of his experience at USP Orientation Week 2020.

The University’s Campus Life Section organises Orientation Week at the start of every academic year, to help first-year students make the transition to university life.

Mr Glenn Pope, Group Manager-Campus Life congratulated Nacanieli on his win and presented the phone to him. He said that Nacanieli showed great initiative by participating and posting his experiences during the week. He also wished Nacanieli the best for his USP journey ahead.
