University to open doors to prospective students Saturday

The University of Windsor will welcome thousands of prospective students and members of their families to Spring Open House on Saturday, March 3.

Check-in counters in the Welcome Centre and CAW Student Centre will direct guests to an information fair, more than 50 presentations on academic programs, and tours of campus, residence, athletics, and academic facilities.

Four chartered buses will provide free return transportation from the Greater Toronto Area and London; shuttle buses will bring attendees from the main campus to the downtown campus buildings for presentations on programs in the schools of social work and creative arts.

“We’re really excited to be able to showcase some of our beautiful new spaces,” says organizer Zora Savic of the student recruitment office. “I think our guests will be impressed by the facilities dedicated to these specialized programs.”

She will be able to measure whether visitors enjoy their time here, with a survey asking them to describe their experiences. All respondents will be entered into a draw to win a pair of Snapchat Spectacles, which allow the wearer to record short videos of what they’re seeing.

Sessions will also provide information on career planning, financial aid, the Outstanding Scholars program, and application processes for medical and law schools. Activities will run 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Find more information, including the full program of events, on the open house website.
