NUS and USP hopes to Participate in South Pacific Games

The National University of Samoa Student Association and the University of the South Pacific Student Association have merged yesterday and discussed an opportunity to participate in the South Pacific Games.

The purpose of the meeting is the coming together of the two student bodies to initiate fun academic activities that can benefit students in both mental and physical but N.U.S.S.A vice president, Reupena Foliga said they’re also determined to participate in the S.P.G.

“We’re planning to have an opportunity for both Universities to participate in the South Pacific Games that is to be hosted here in our country,” he said.

The two student bodies are meeting again in the future to discuss further about this.

It is not the first time for the two Universities to combine and unite the students for educational and sports purpose but student bodies wishes for this year to be extraordinary.

Mr. Foliga said their schedule planned for both Universities is mostly heavy on the fun side (sports), followed by different activities and prize giving.

“The date for our two days of fun day has not been confirmed yet because we thought that our study schedule for this year might be interrupted by the South Pacific Games this year.”

“We aim to build a linkage or a relationship between USP and NUS where students from two different Universities can find new friends when these activities are actually being carried out,” Mr. Foliga said.

The combination meeting was held at the National University of Samoa Campus and two students bodies are happy to have combined together for greater reasons.

Arts’ Rugby Team captain, Lleyton Tepa of the N.U.S said his team is happy and looking forward to play and participate alongside the U.S.P fellas.

“We wish the two student bodies the best and we wish to have any luck for the South Pacific Games.”
