student speaks with OPUS and admin repsAnswers await at an open house next week for people considering part-time studies.

Event to offer strategies for part-time studies

The Organization of Part-time University Students (OPUS) will host a Spring Open House to bring attention to ways that busy people can make a university education part of their lives. The event will take place in the CAW Student Centre’s Ambassador Auditorium on Tuesday and Thursday, June 21 and 23, from 10 a.m. to noon and 4 to 6 p.m. each day.

Organizers say many people don’t realize that classes can be taken online or in the evening, that employers may pay for all or part of their education, and that they are eligible for health and dental benefits even as part-time students.

Admissions and Registrar’s office staff as well as a panel of part-time students will be on hand to answer questions, and visitors will have a chance to win a $500 bursary. Learn more on the OPUS website.
