Marketing Activities in the Month of July
The month of July has been a busy season for the Daystar Marketing team. The team has hosted schools at the Athi River campus and participated in career fairs organized by various schools in the country.
This gave the marketing team the opportunity to inform and inspire students aspiring to join university next year, to consider Daystar as University of choice. Aside from that, the marketing team also took time to offer career guidance to the high school students as well as counseling on life choices.
On 21st July, Daystar University was invited to a career fair at Alliance Boys’ High School. “Shaping your future through your choices today.”
