Voices April - September 2023

I am studying Food and Beverage Management. I want to become a chef and be exposed to more things so I chose that course. I was told by a family friend that’s doing the same course here that it’s a very good course, so I chose to do it as well. I’m expecting to learn as much as I can and I would like to do Badminton as an extracurricular activity. Nathan Larmond (SHTM) STUDENT VOICES – Meet Our New Students Meet some of our new students who attended their Week of Welcome orientation period starting on August, 20, 2023- August 26, 2023. Below are their responses to the question, “What are you studying, why did you choose UTech, Jamaica to pursue your higher education and what are your expectations of UTech, Jamaica?” Passania Barnes (COHS) UTech offers the programme I want to do and I feel like the school is good at many things and I feel like I could get a lot of versatility here. I’m doing Allied Health Sciences in Dietetics and Nutrition and I know that I’m going to have a very good first year here, join a lot of clubs and be very social and interactive in my environment. Sanajay Willis (FELS) I've been to university before I did two years at MICO but realized that I don't want to teach and of course after that I did some research in terms of the different industries that are lucrative and flexible. The media of course is one of them because that grows along with technology. When I came to UTech's page I was thinking through and Communication Arts and Technology stood out and the professions that you're able to go into also stood out. I was speaking to someone concerning digital marketing and it's something that I'd want to go into so that's why I chose UTech and also because the course I study is pretty versatile. My only expectation is to have the necessary material that I need so that I can effectively be a student. 22 January- March 2023 | VOICES Bi- Monthly Magazine of the University of Technology, Jamaica
