Connection on offer online at March 6 open house

Webinars, online information booths, and a networking cyberspace will greet visitors to the UWindsor Virtual Spring Open House on Saturday, March 6.

The event will showcase the University’s academic programs, student services, clubs and associations through live, pre-recorded, and panel discussions. It is aimed at applicants — including those who have already accepted admission — and prospective students. New for this event, a team from the Office of the Registrar will be on-hand to assist admitted students with accepting their offer.

“We will be welcoming visitors from around the world to connect with professors and current students, ask questions through a chat function, watch presentations in our virtual auditorium, and tour the campus from wherever they may be,” says Chris Busch, associate vice-president for enrolment management.

He is especially enthusiastic about the Lancer Lounge, a virtual meeting space for social interaction.

“It’s a guest favourite,” Dr. Busch says. “We’ll be offering quizzes, challenges, and a chance to connect with other new students.”

Guests will also have opportunities to win prizes, including a draw for free fall tuition.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Find more details and a link to register at
