Campus to host guidance counsellors Friday

Hosting guidance counsellors from across the province will give the University of Windsor a chance to showcase its campus and city amenities, says Katia Benoit, acting director of 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, residence, student life on campus, 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.

Open House welcomes thousands to campus

Justine Bergen was glad to lend a hand during the UWindsor Open House on Friday.

The fourth-year biology student stood outside the northwest corner of Essex Hall, directing visitors to the free lunch in Vanier Hall, and from there to presentations on academic programs held in buildings across the campus.

“It’s nice to be able to help them out,” she said. “Some of them go by, looking like they know where they’re going, but others are holding their maps trying to get oriented.”

Campus to roll out red carpet to visitors today

More than 1500 guests pre-registered for today’s UWindsor Open House, says Zora Savic, but the campus can expect more visitors than that: “We always have students who register at the last minute.”

Student communication and events coordinator in the liaison office, she says the presentations on academic programs form the heart of the day.

“Getting a chance to meet our faculty members is a highlight for the students and their families,” Savic says. “They love to hear from professors about what to expect.”

Itinerary builder to personalize open house experience, say organizers

A new online application allowing registrants of tomorrow’s UWindsor Open House to schedule their activities for the day will help them to set their own priorities, says Zora Savic.

Events coordinator in the Office of Liaison and Student Recruitment, she is “thrilled” with the program. The day is jam-packed with dozens of activities across the campus dealing with academic programs, admissions, scholarships and services.

Faculty of Education to open doors for March 8 recruitment event

Friday’s open house is aimed at helping applicants appreciate what the University of Windsor has to offer, but that doesn’t have to mean just first-entry programs, say organizers of a project in the Faculty of Education. They are hoping to attract University graduates interested in pursuing study in education.

“An education degree will enhance graduates’ abilities in leadership, professional development, instructional, motivational and interpersonal skills,” says acting dean Karen Roland.

Student recruitment office relocates to Odette Building

The Office of Liaison and Student Recruitment has taken up temporary residence in room 204, Odette Building, while it awaits completion of the Welcome Centre.

“This move puts us in a more highly visible and accessible location,” says recruitment officer Katia Benoit. “It will make it easier for prospective students and their families to find us, as well as putting us in the heart of the new and exciting physical changes that are happening across campus.”

Open House gives prospective students a little UWindsor experience

In what organizers are describing as the University of Windsor’s largest recruitment success yet, more than 3,000 high school students and their parents came from all over Ontario to Friday’s Fall Open House.

Sunny skies greeted visitors for tours of academic, residence and athletics facilities, presentations on programs and services, and a barbecue lunch served under four tents in the courtyard outside Dillon Hall. The Mark Calcott Band, an ensemble of UWindsor students, entertained guests as they enjoyed their lunch.
