This Saturday is the annual University of Windsor fall open house.
Prospective students and their families will be able to tour the campus, learn more about each academic program, and participate in academic and student service sessions.
“You should always visit the campus of the universities you are interested in before making a choice,” says Lionel Walsh, Assistant Vice-President for North American Recruitment. “This is where you’re going to spend four years, and maybe the most exciting four years of your life so far, so it should be a place that makes you feel like ‘yes I fit in here’.”
The University of Windsor offers 200 academic majors, ranging from Aeronautics to Women’s and Gender Studies. With such a wide selection, it is natural to be unsure which path to take. For this reason, Co-op, Career and Employment Services will offer participants evaluations of their personal aptitudes. Students will be also able attend 67 different sessions, where each program is presented in depth.
At an Information Fair in the CAW Student Centre’s Ambassador Auditorium, prospective students will be able to meet faculty, staff and current students from each academic program and get their questions answered.
Walsh says that what makes UWindsor so special is the relationship with its students.
“It’s a smaller university, so our class sizes are smaller,” he says. “Getting to know your professor outside of class and getting help with career advice makes a really big difference.”
It takes place from 10am to 4pm.
