Scheduling the UWindsor’s fall open house on a Saturday will offer a better experience to prospective students and their families, says the event’s organizer.
The annual event is slated this year for November 7.
“Our visitors will not have to take the day off school,” says Zora Savic of the student recruitment office. “Holding it on a Saturday also offers easier access to parking and more classroom space for program presentations.”
The open house features tours of the campus and its residences, formal sessions on academic programs, and opportunities to speak with faculty, staff and current students.
Provost Douglas Kneale is excited about the change to a weekend event.
“The open house is a signature part of our recruitment efforts and key to our institutional success,” he says. “I hope that the move to a Saturday will mean increased attendance and an improved chance to reach more prospective students.”
Savic says she will be working to finalize details of the day’s activities over the next few weeks.
