Open house organizers issue call for activities

Organizers of the University’s Spring Open House — 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 7 — invite submissions from campus partners for engagement activities.

The event provides prospective students and their families an opportunity to meet with faculty, staff, and current students; tour campus; and attend presentations. Examples of outreach activities include:

  • Academic presentations by faculty and current students
  • Tours of facilities, equipment, and laboratories
  • Performances, exhibitions, or experiment demonstrations

Acting associate vice-president, enrolment management, Chris Busch, encourages departments and groups to get creative.

“We are hoping that designing activities that really provide our visitors with a taste of the UWindsor experience will enable them to envision themselves here,” he says. “Have some fun with your ideas!”
