The visit of the school to Al-Watanyia Private university comes under the development program which WPU has signed represented by the chancellor. Ahed Khezam with the directorates of education in Hama and Homs. Through this initiate, WPU strived to minimize the gap between life of university students, and life of school students, and help parents and teachers in schools to direct their kids during school phase to choose the perfect major which fulfill their desires and skills.

The first destination of the group was the university central auditory, where Dr.Prof. Ahed Khezam presented his message; the vision of the university, the programs, and the introductory film, which were warmly welcomed by the school students. Following, the visitors received their gifts, and started a tour in the university, where the library seemed to be an interesting site for them, as they enjoyed the informative session delivered by the director of Bureau: Lucy Al-saleby about the library history, objectives, and missions. Then, the visitors headed to the faculty of engineering building where the dean. Talal Assaf received them along with some faculty members who they showed them the college sections, and labs.

This initiate isn’t the first of its sort, as this tends to be the second time a school cadre to visit Al-watanyia private university , and we look forward to many more visits from different schools. This kind of programs aims at:

2) Help the high school students to understand the life of university through organizing periodic visits to the university site
3) Form cadres of faculty members and administrators to organize the visits between the schools and the university. Moreover, explain the university majors and academic curriculums to the students.
4) Create& distribute “desired major” sheets on students, in order to help them determine their desired major at University, and study the possibility of letting students attend some lectures before giving admissions.
