More than 2,300 attendees registered for the University’s Fall Open House on Nov. 21 and not only were they able to join Saturday, the content will remain available on-demand for the next month.
With more than 45 sessions in the virtual auditorium and the opportunity to visit 65 program and service area booths in the exhibit hall, attendees were able to text and chat by audio or video with professors, staff, and current students.
Without setting foot on the campus, prospective students took tours with members of the Student Ambassador Team, reports Chris Busch, associate vice president, enrolment management.
“We were so happy to welcome our guests, and sincerely appreciate the teamwork displayed across the institution,” he says. “The event managed to successfully showcase the University’s academic programs and support services while respecting current restrictions on large gatherings.”
Attendees also accessed the Lancer Lounge — a networking space to meet other prospective students, get more familiar with post-secondary life, and ask student ambassadors about the transition to university.
Students who missed the event are invited to make a virtual connection with the student recruitment team to take a tour, attend a session, or speak with a recruiter.
