Liaison and Student Recruitment

Cross-province tour offering information to UWindsor applicants

Stops at seven cities through Ontario will provide UWindsor applicants with information about financial aid and scholarship opportunities, as well as what makes Windsor's learning-centred environment distinctive.

The receptions are aimed at applying students and their families. Current students, faculty and staff offer them a chance to learn more about academic programs and student life at the University of Windsor.

Fall 2012 applications selecting UWindsor as their first choice up six per cent

Expanded recruiting efforts and a broader provincial profile are just two of the reasons UWindsor has experienced a six per cent increase over last year in applicants selecting UWindsor as their first choice, topping the provincial average increase of two per cent.

Dave Bussière, assistant provost, admissions and recruiting, says a new approach to student recruitment has significantly helped increase interest in UWindsor.

Open house gives high schoolers a taste of the UWindsor experience

It takes hundreds of people from across campus to pull off an event as big as Friday's Fall Open House, said Dave Bussière, assistant provost for admissions and recruiting, but it was worth it.

“We had a great day,” he said as his staff wound day from the event, which brought about 2,000 visitors to the University for tours, academic presentations, and information on programs and admissions.

“We have been so busy – the sessions were full to capacity. We have been getting wonderful feedback.”

Technology to support student recruitment efforts

A team of UWindsor faculty, staff and students will meet with prospective students and their parents at the Ontario Universities Fair in Toronto, October 14 to 16.

“We are so proud of this excellent group,” says student communication and events coordinator Zora Savic. “They always do a great job of representing the University and telling our stories.”
