CARRAMAR resident Georgia Reuben enjoys digging through WA’s past as part of her degree.

The St Stephen’s School graduate is doing a Bachelor of Arts in archaeology and geography at Notre Dame University.

“Uncovering artefacts that tell stories of WA’s past is truly rewarding,” she said.

“Notre Dame gives students practical opportunities to relive history.

“We do digs at Peel Town. You learn so much because it’s hands-on.

“You rotate through different roles, sometimes digging or archiving; it’s really broad.”

Encouraging others to visit the Fremantle campus during its August 21 open day, Ms Reuben said she chose to study at Notre Dame after attending an open day in Year 10 and feeling at ease.

“It’s a nice community and you get to know your lecturers,” she said.

“It’s nice to have that sense of community.

“Notre Dame really grows you as a person, not just as a student.”

Visitors can take part in a range of hands-on activities at the various academic schools on August 21, and hear from academics about courses and the university’s admissions process.
