(October 20, 2022) - Laurentian University faculty, staff and students have been busy preparing for Fall Open House, a highly anticipated event that will welcome future students to campus on Saturday, October 22nd, 2022. This in-person event provides the opportunity for future students to discover what it’s like to be a Laurentian student.
"We're extremely excited to be showcasing Laurentian's outstanding faculties, services, and student life,” said Manager of Liaison Services, Pieter Breijer. “We have guests arriving from all over the province to participate in a day of activities designed to demonstrate how we can get them to the end goal they're seeking."
Liaison Services is the first point of contact for all persons interested in programs and services offered by Laurentian, and team members are dedicated to guiding those considering the University as their post secondary destination of choice.
Future students and other guests will have the opportunity to attend an academic and student services fair at which professors, students ambassadors, alumni, Liaison team members and other support staff will be available. No question will be left unanswered, and guests can expect a truly hands-on experience that includes participation in guest lectures and guided campus tours.
Those interested in touring the University’s McEwen School of Architecture can expect a round-trip shuttle to and from this location and the University’s primary campus. A student ambassador will be eager to welcome all aboard.
“Student ambassadors contribute exponentially to the experience of Fall Open House,” explained Danielle Yasko-Pellerin, Liaison Services’ Events and Communications Coordinator. “We are very proud of our student ambassadors who are passionate about sharing their student experiences with future cohorts. They truly make a positive impact on our guests from near and far.”
Fall Open House follows a successful Ontario Universities’ Fair that welcomed over 78,000 attendees on October 1st and 2nd, 2022.
Registration for Fall Open House is encouraged and is available online.
