Recruitment team heading to the fair

A team of more than 100 students, faculty, and staff will represent Windsor at the Ontario Universities’ Fair, September 22 to 24 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

“Our people tell our story,” says Zora Savic, who co-ordinates the UWindsor displays at the event, which showcases all 21 Ontario universities for some 120,000 visitors. “Prospective students will be able to meet with members of our team and learn about our programs and services — everything that makes Windsor a terrific place to study.”

In addition to personal interaction, visitors will also be able to experience a virtual tour of the UWindsor campus.

“People who stop by our booth at the fair will receive virtual reality viewers, getting an immersive tour of our facilities,” Savic says. “It is a fun introduction to Windsor.”

The fair provides contacts to invite to the next major event in the recruitment cycle, the November 4 fall open house.
