Campus rolling out welcome mat to high schoolers today

More than 1500 guests pre-registered for Spring 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 almost 40 presentations on academic programs are 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.”

More one-on-one time is available during the information fair in Ambassador Auditorium, and tours of the campus, the St. Denis Centre and residence halls also prove popular.

One of the key events in the student recruitment process, Spring Open House will run 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, March 9.
