Universities fair resumes central place in recruitment calendar

The return of the Ontario Universities Fair to an in-person event for the first time since 2019 is a great opportunity for the University of Windsor, says Chris Busch, associate vice-president, enrolment management.

“While we continue to be a top choice for students in the Windsor area, we also want to be at the top of the list among students in the greater Toronto area,” Dr. Busch says. “The universities fair allows them to get to know us and provides us with an opportunity to demonstrate how students thrive at UWindsor.”

The event will take place Oct. 1 and 2 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. With more than 130,000 participants each year, it is one of the most important entries in the annual student recruitment calendar.

“Connecting with prospective students and their fans at the OUF sets the tone: driving interest, engagement, and applications,” says Busch. “With personal attention and quality interactions at the fair, we’ll build our reputation as a welcoming, vibrant, diverse University community.”

He notes that the UWindsor team will boast a significant presence of faculty, staff, and students.

“Our representatives are poised to impress, sharing their Lancer love and enthusiasm, and demonstrating why the University of Windsor is the choice for post-secondary education.”

Guests will explore a refreshed booth focusing on this year’s campaign while being entered into a draw to win a free first semester at the University of Windsor next fall. In return, staff will collect contact information allowing them to continue the conversation, including inviting prospects to visit the campus during Fall Open House on Nov. 5.
